Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was arrested for a DUI charge involving an accident. He was asked to submit to a breath test (which was below .08), and then was asked to submit to a urine test. He declined to take the urine test, so they suspended his license for 12 months and charged him with a DUI.

DUI defense: DUI cases involving alleged drug use are particularly tricky. There are a host of problems with urine testing, but there are also problems with refusing to take the urine test. In this case, it was important that the client took action as soon as possible after being released from jail, and we were able to secure additional information that was used to help reduce the charge.

Results: Client avoided a DUI conviction and the case was reduced to Reckless Driving.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you’ve been charged with a DUI alleging drug use and you refused to take a urine test, you need to contact a DUI lawyer ASAP. This is a serious charge and you need the best Tampa DUI lawyer you can find to help. More importantly, the faster you get a lawyer involved, it will help you make a better decision about how to preserve potential evidence that might help you avoid a DUI conviction. (This is not the first time that this particular defense has worked for me — we’ve used the same defense in almost every DUI-Drug case I’ve fought… but only if the client contacted me earlier enough to preserve the evidence!)

Every case has defenses. Some may be stronger than others, but every case has issues that can be attacked and may lead to a better resolution. Every case is different, so you should speak with an experienced Tampa DUI attorney who has the knowledge and is willing to invest the time preparing the case to see if there are any chances of avoiding jail or avoiding a DUI conviction.

NEXT STEP: Speak with a DUI Lawyer Today

If you’ve been arrested for DUI, no matter how bad the case looks, don’t ever plead guilty without first talking to a Tampa DUI lawyer. There may even be a way that can get your charges dismissed, but you’ll never know unless you fight your charges by talking to a Tampa DUI lawyer as soon as possible. Many of the issues in DUI cases are very time sensitive. DUI cases are serious, with harsher penalties than many felony cases, and the “hidden cost” of DUI insurance that can easily climb past $25,000! (Good news: You can avoid almost all of that if your DUI lawyer gets the DUI dropped or gets the charge reduced!)
