It’s nearly Independence Day, and many people are gearing up to spend a long weekend eating, drinking, and hanging out with family and friends. For many, the festivities will include alcoholic beverages. We’d like to remind you that if you plan to drink this weekend, please do not drive a car, motorcycle, boat, or any other motor vehicle! Please make alternate arrangements to stay with a friend, or take advantage of taxis, buses, or ride-sharing services. It could save a life!
We hope that you don’t have to call us this weekend, but if your Fourth of July is ruined by a DUI, know that we’re here to help. The Miami DUI attorneys at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. have decades of combined experience fighting these types of charges. To maximize your chances of success, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after an arrest. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin investigating your case and considering all possible defenses. Furthermore, you will only have 10 days to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles to contest a six-month to one-year suspension of your driver’s license. If you wait too long to take action and involve an attorney, you may not be able to avoid this penalty, but immediate action may potentially save your driving privileges.
We hope you enjoy a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend!
