DUI Defense Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, FL Reduced to Reckless Driving

DUI in Fort Lauderdale Case Dropped by South Florida Defense Attorneys


Outcome of Fort Lauderdale DUI Case:

We were able to successfully reduce Courtney’s DUI charge to a Reckless Driving charge.

Client Concerns about Fort Lauderdale DUI Charge:

Courtney was arrested on December 22, and was worried that no attorney would be available to meet with her during Christmas time. Courtney was referred to us by a coworker, and decided to reach out despite her situation. We took Courtney’s call on Christmas Eve and met with her in the office the day after Christmas. Courtney was extremely happy and appreciative of our efforts to put her first even in the midst of the holidays.

Facts on Fort Lauderdale DUI Case:

Courtney E. was at her work’s holiday party where she had two drinks before leaving to drive home from Fort Lauderdale. As she was driving, Trooper Randy Rojas of the Florida Highway Patrol decided to follow Courtney on her route, waiting for her to tense up and make a mistake. Once Courtney minorly swerved into the right lane, correcting herself immediately, Trooper Rojas turned on his sirens and conducted a traffic stop. Trooper Rojas reported that Courtney leaned on his vehicle for support the moment that she got out of the car, but never checked off and indicated the incident as a clue that Courtney was impaired in the Drug and Alcohol Influence Report. Trooper Rojas also deliberately did not turn on his remote microphone, leaving no way to prove the legitimacy of his report. Courtney refused both the field sobriety exercises and breath test, and was placed under arrest for driving under the influence.


Strategy of Attack on Fort Lauderdale DUI Case:

Because Trooper Rojas intentionally did not turn on his microphone during his interaction with Courtney, there was no way for anyone to determine what was said during the exchange. In response, we filed a motion to dismiss due to the lack of preservation of evidence. This would allow for a jury to infer the audio and decide for themselves what most likely would have taken place. We also relied on the video of the incident from Trooper Rojas’ car, which contradicted everything that he said in the report. We took the deposition of  Trooper Rojas, and while grilling him, he admitted to us that his job was to drive around looking for DUI’s, not to patrol the highway like in his job title. This admission helped us prove that Trooper Rojas was originally following Courtney, waiting for her to make a mistake.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
