Tampa Charge Reductions Lawyer
A first-time DUI arrest is often a Florida or out-of-state driver's introduction to the criminal justice system.

Ways to reduce DUI convictions and save your driving privileges
As a skilled and respected DWI defense lawyer, I know there are many ways to defend you against charges of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. Law enforcement actions taken before, during and after your arrest can provide grounds for full dismissal of charges, or a criminal charge reduction to a lesser offense like reckless driving:
- Did the police have probable cause to stop you in the first place?
- Was proper police procedure followed by the arresting officer?
- Can your DUI sobriety and field exercise results be thrown out?
- Do you have a prior DUI arrests or conviction, or is this your first offense ?
From questionable use of Florida's "move over" law as an excuse for a DUI stop, to applying land-based sobriety testing in a boating under the influence arrest, I have handled thousands of DUI cases for thousands of grateful clients.
I offer an in-depth knowledge of local law enforcement, judges and prosecutors. As a former prosecutor, I know both sides of the criminal justice system. I also handle the administrative suspension of your driver's license.
