Daytona Beach DUI Lawyer
Find Your Effective Defense - (888) 785-6548
Being arrested for a DUI can be a very stressful experience, and you will
face immediate consequences. The officer who arrested you will typically
seize your driver's license. You will
only have 10 days to apply for a formal review hearing with the Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) so that you can challenge the automatic suspension
of your driving privileges.

If you refused to provide a breath, blood or urine test, your license will
be suspended for 12 months. A Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney
should be retained immediately upon being arrested for a DUI. It is important
to understand that the DHSMV can take away your right to drive even if
the charges against you for a DUI are dismissed or reduced in criminal
court. Filing for a hearing with DHSMV can prevent this from occurring
if you request the hearing within 10 days of your arrest.
Driver's License Suspension – Daytona Beach, Deland & West Volusia
Besides having your driver's license suspended if you are convicted
of a DUI, your insurance company will more than likely increase your rates
and possibly cancel your policy at the end of its term. You will need
insurance to be able to lift the suspension on your license. Our state's
DUI penalties are harsh. Depending on the amount of alcohol found to be
in your system, you could face large fines, community service, your vehicle
could be impounded, and you may have to serve time in jail.
For all of these reasons, we strongly urge you to act quickly in fighting
for your defense. At Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have seen cases where
breath test machines were faulty or the tests were not administered correctly.
Traffic stops may have been conducted unlawfully and field sobriety tests
incorrectly executed. We review every
criminal defense case thoroughly and form tough defense strategies throughout the
DUI process with the goal of having the charges against you reduced or dismissed.
