Marion County Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
The State of Florida aggressively prosecutes Driving Under the Influence charges. The penalties are severe such as the loss of driving privileges, being put on probation, paying substantial fines and court costs, and, in some cases, incarceration.
If you have been charged with a DUI, your license is already in the process of being revoked. At the Law Offices of Mark D. Shelnutt & Rebecca A. Guthrie, our lawyers are committed to aggressive and ethical defense of DUI cases. The time for legal representation in a DUI begins immediately, as Florida Law requires strict compliance with time periods imposed to request an administrative review in order to maintain your driving privileges for as long as possible.
Our Florida DUI Defense Practice
The law provides protections to you that are very important. Our experience in defending DUI cases begins with a thorough and extensive investigation of some of the following:
- Was the initial stop legal?
- Were the field sobriety tests properly administered?
- Was the proper advice given prior to a request for a breath test?
- Was the Breathalyzer machine properly calibrated and tested for accuracy within the required time prior to your arrest?
- Did medical conditions or medication contribute to the facts upon which the arrest was based?
Our Law Firm will zealously investigate every aspect of your arrest. If there are any grounds for reasonable doubt of your guilt, we work hard to find it. We extensively utilize expert witnesses to aggressively challenge the results of both blood and breath samples obtained by the state in the prosecution of DUI clients. We handle every case as if it were going to trial.
If you are facing felony DUI or vehicular homicide charges in Marion County or Florida, you deserve the best defense available.
