We hear and read about it all the time in the media: A famous athlete or other celebrity is pulled over and found to be DUI—driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. With Broward County listed as the second-most populated county in the State of Florida, we should not be surprised that DUI offenses are high on the list of crimes that Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and other municipal, county, and state law enforcement authorities and courts of law seek out for arrest and prosecution. And it's not just high-profile public figures—any of us can find ourselves in the unfortunate circumstance of having been pulled over and subjected to a breathalyzer test that, at the beginning of the evening, was never a blip on our radar screen. Beyond the gasp of “Where did that come from?” we need to ask a much more salient question: Who is going to be my Broward County DUI attorney?
DUI offenses are always prominently on the radars of the Broward County legal system. No judge or county or city law enforcement official wants to be identified as the inept public servant who let a drunk driver get away only to later cause a tragedy that could have been avoided. Thus, Broward County prosecutors and police aggressively pursue DUI charges. If they happen to accuse those who are innocent, the judicial system is there to sort that out, right? Not without a local Broward County DUI attorney to be as aggressive and unrelenting in your defense as legal authorities are in their prosecution.
Your Broward County DUI attorney knows that law enforcement and prosecutors, in their fervor to catch, convict, and tally DUI offenders, are often distracted or too hurried to follow exact legal protocols and to ensure that breathalyzer machines are correctly calibrated. After all, those officials are not going to be congratulated on how many sober persons they pulled over and tested. And while they are indeed public servants who, in most cases, are just trying to carry out their jobs, don't you want an on-the-spot Broward County DUI attorney to go above and beyond carrying out a job to render you the most aggressive, scientifically founded, and innovative defense possible if you are charged with DUI?
Beyond the breathalyzer is a myriad of obstacles and legal booby traps that no unwitting citizen can possibly have considered—for who plans out ahead of time the steps you would have to take once charged with DUI? Without a Broward County DUI attorney in your corner, the deck is stacked against you. Prosecutors have been processing convictions through the Broward County DUI mill for decades. So much the better for you if your Broward County DUI attorney is an expert who has also formerly been a prosecutor and who is armed with the most cutting-edge scientific data that can unearth the inaccuracies and errors that both a machine and a busy law enforcement system can commit.
Your Broward County DUI attorney lives here, in the county, and knows its people, its police, and its courts. Your Broward County DUI attorney is a fellow citizen who, like you, calls Broward County home, and is proud to bring to your aid the best possible legal defense if ever you should find yourself on the wrong side of a DUI charge.
