Orlando License Suspension Defense Attorney
License Suspension & Orlando DUI Charges
Many people rely heavily on their cars to get to work, school, to drive their children to sports games, and attend social events. For some, having daily access to their car is a way of life because they do not live close enough to public transportation.
License suspension in relation to a DUI charge can be a large inconvenience because it can leave you reliant on family, friends and public transportation to chauffeur you around. The team at Katz & Phillips, P.A. understands how important your driver’s license is to you. We understand that in some cases, losing your license just isn’t an option. That’s why we have dedicated legal counsel to assist you at DMV hearings and criminal court so that you can try to avoid losing your license.
Challenge Driver’s License Suspension
If you are accused of failing or refusing a breath test, you may face the administrative suspension of your driver’s license. These penalties are as follows:
● First DUI offense (.08% blood alcohol concentration or greater): 6-month suspension.
● Second or subsequent DUI offense: 1-year suspension.
● Refusal to submit to breath or blood test: 18-month suspension.
● Second or subsequent refusal of breath or blood test: 18-month suspension.
While these penalties may seem overwhelming, a qualified and experienced Orlando DUI attorney may be able to challenge your driver’s license suspension. The lawfulness of your arrest may be questioned, the administration of a breath or blood test may be taken into consideration, or an alleged refusal may be contested.
