In order to handle a Florida DUI matter, upon being retained, our first step is to enter our appearance and plead the client NOT GUILTY. The next thing we do is make extensive motions for discovery. Discovery is any information the State has in its’ possession that it intends to use against the client. All the answers and defenses are based on the facts and the information or lack of information provided in the discovery.
Upon receipt and review of the discovery, we scrutinize it, then have our renowned experts review all the materials to advise us of any deficiencies in the State’s proofs or problems with the testing results or procedures. After review and opinion from our experts we make Constitutional Motions, such as a Motion to Suppress or a request for a Probable cause hearing.
Finally, we appear at Court and will make a Motion to Dismiss either orally or in writing based on the deficiencies in the State’s case. If the case is not dismissed and we have no issues we look to get the minimum penalties based on the offense or we can go to trial and put the State’s evidence to its’ test.
