Jacksonville DUI Defense Attorney – Building an Effective DUI Defense
Premiere criminal defense law firm with a reputation for success in Northeast Florida
The Jacksonville drunk driving defense lawyers working at Robert Shafer & Associates, P.A. are skilled at preparing effective and aggressive DUI defenses. We are experienced to effectively handle your DUI charge, whether it is your first or fourth. Our DUI lawyers are sharp, intelligent and determined to protect your legal rights with a solid defense.
A solid defense strategy comes after lengthy, honest and detailed conversations between you and your lawyer. As the saying goes, there are many sides to a story, and when it comes to developing a defense strategy the same holds true. You and your DUI lawyer will come to a form of the truth that increases the chances of a favorable outcome. The outcome possibilities include a not guilty verdict, a guilty verdict to a crime less serious or a plea bargain. Before finalizing your defense we will speak with the prosecuting lawyers and learn about the case being built against you.
Possible defense strategies for your case
An effective and competent DUI lawyer will first question the police officer’s account of the DUI and the functioning quality of the sobriety exercises the officer administered. Another avenue for your DUI lawyer to pursue is to locate a neutral third party who can confirm that you were sober rather than intoxicated. Ultimately, every person arrested for DUI has a right to a jury trial. While our attorneys can diligently prepare your case for trial, the decision to exercise this right belongs to the accused.
