Deals on Florida DUI for Out-of-State clients
A Florida DUI conviction means different things in different states. Some lawyers might encourage you to take a deal. That deal may be better for Florida drivers, but might not be better for you in your home state. For many out-of-state drivers, it is worth fighting the DUI charge. Being from another state creates problems but also may have advantages.
Here are some key things out-of-state drivers should ask your lawyer about any deal:
- How will the deal affect me in my home state, province or country?
- Will it affect my ability to travel to other countries?
- Will a DUI conviction make it hard for me to get a job, or cause me to lose my job?
- What will a DUI do to my professional license?
If you are from another state and facing DUI charges here in Florida, you should talk to a lawyer who understands these issues. Warren Redlich has 17 years of experience as a New York trial lawyer. He has worked with clients from many states on how violations affect drivers from other states.
Fighting Florida DUI cases for Out-of-State clients
When you face a Florida DUI, your Florida driving privileges will typically be suspended within 10 days. This is a big deal for Florida drivers, but often not important for out-of-state drivers. Many Florida DUI lawyers will suggest fighting the suspension, but this costs money and may not be the best strategic option for your case, especially if you are from another state.
