Fort Lauderdale Attorney Adam Harmelin

Defending your rights when charged with DUI in Broward, Fort Lauderdale area

Hopefully, you will never need one, but if you do, an experienced Fort Lauderdale DUI lawyer can help you with your driving under the influence defense. A DUI conviction can cause serious and sometimes irreparable harm to the personal and professional direction of your life, so it is important that you avoid it if possible. Drunk driving defense attorneys can help you with your case and work with you to reach a suitable agreement with police that will not permanently damage your personal or professional reputation.

Still, the best advice about drunk driving that a Broward DUI attorney or any other legal professional can give you is to not to operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Nevertheless, if you decide to, there are several measures that you can take to protect yourself. First of all, try to keep pace with traffic. If you are driving on a lonely road, it is easier for police to detect even the slightest impairment. When you can blend into traffic, it is far more challenging. This tip is particularly helpful if you have drunk somewhat but not enough to be considered severely impaired. Secondly, if you do end up getting stopped by a police officer, stay in your car unless instructed otherwise. Certain states of impairment are not easy to detect. Should you get out of the car, you risk being seen as unsteady, and that can lead to a DUI charge.

A Broward DUI attorney or Fort Lauderdale DUI lawyer may be able to help you reduce charges in most cases, but they will not be able to overcome proper testing that proves you are intoxicated. However, what they can do is arrange for an independently administered test in addition to police testing. Your Broward or Fort Lauderdale DUI lawyer should make sure that you understand this right before you willingly submit to testing. And on that subject, you are not obligated to do so without due cause, so be careful not to give away your rights before you even know what they are. Drunk driving defense attorneys can help you avoid the disruption of jail time or even a conviction under the right circumstances.

You owe it to yourself to contact your attorney immediately if you are arrested and charged with a DUI.
