Why Hire a DUI Lawyer?

With a previous DUI conviction, the odds are stacked against you in a court of law without the proper defense on your side. The criminal courts will be especially harsh if you were still under probation from the last conviction, and a jury would be less inclined to side in favor of the defense if the defendant represented himself or relied on a public defender. Each case has to be proven individually; the courts need to realize this and hold this case isolated from the others. Our attorneys know how to make sure this is a reality in court and can increase your chances of success.

At Thomas & Paulk, we are compassionate to the need for aggressive defense in the face of criminal charges such as this. We have seen first-hand the consequences of situations such as these can have on the lives of the wrongfully accused, and we are completely devoted to ensuring that our clients are given the strongest support.

If you choose to work with our firm, you can breathe easier knowing your future is in trustworthy hands. Call (813) 321-7323 today to put us on your side.

Have You Been Charged with a DUI?

DUI Defense in Florida

At Thomas & Paulk, one of our primary focuses is on the defense of DUI charges. In fact, we are recognized throughout the Tampa area as one of the premier DUI defense law firms. Our team is well-versed in this area of the law and has a wide-expanse of experience in helping our clients fight against such charges.

It doesn’t matter if this is your first offense or your third, you can count on our firm to have the experience to protect your legal rights. Often, our defense starts with recounting with you how the police officer came to stop you in the first place and how he or she came to believe you may be under the influence of alcohol. If the stop was illegal, or the tests were improperly administered, we may be able to argue for the dismissal of that evidence in court, helping your chances of a dropped charge.

The important thing is that you act quickly. Criminal cases involving charges of drinking and driving are serious and they can move fast. You cannot afford to wait or ignore your charges. You need a legal professional on your side who truly understands what you're facing so that they can offer you experience counsel and sound advice. To learn more about how a lawyer like this can assist with your case, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
