South Florida Defense Attorney
DUI and DWI offenses are serious offenses in Florida and can carry some extremely stiff penalties including license suspension, fines and jail time. Be sure that you have an experienced attorney on your side who knows the law and will fight to protect your rights. The law office of Charles B. Mead, Jr. P.A. in Boca Raton has been providing aggressive DUI/DWI defense services to clients throughout South Florida for over 15 years.
Attorney Charlie Mead has extensive experience handling all types of DUI and DWI cases. He thoroughly investigates every aspect of your case. He works to have any evidence that was obtained illegally thrown out. He has been successful in previous cases challenging evidence based on lack of probable cause for the initial stop, failure to read Miranda rights, and bringing to light other evidentiary mistakes or procedural errors.
Know Your Rights if You Are Stopped for a DUI
If you are stopped for suspicion of DUI or DWI, it is important to remember that from the moment you are pulled over, the officer’s only goal is to obtain the necessary evidence to convict you. It is critical that you refrain from doing or saying anything to provide that evidence.
You have the right to remain silent. Take advantage of it. Don’t say anything to the police until you have spoken to attorney Charles Mead. You also have the right to refuse any breath tests or field sobriety tests. While refusal is a separate offense, you haven’t given the police any evidence and attorney Mead is in a much better position to create a strong defense on your behalf.
Florida DMV Hearings
A DMV hearing is a separate proceeding to determine the status of your driving privileges after a drunk driving arrest. The DMV hearing is not scheduled automatically. You must request the hearing within 10 days in order to have a chance to preserve your driving privileges. Mr. Mead will represent you at your hearing and present the strongest possible argument for you to keep your license.
