Florida DUI Defense Attorneys Beat Drunk Driving Charge in Fort Lauderdale

South Florida DUI Lawyer Beats Fort Lauderdale DUI charge

Outcome of DUI case in Fort Lauderdale:

Reynaldo was going down Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale when he accidentally lost control of his vehicle and drove up a curb. Despite having committed no traffic violation, nor causing any damage to either his vehicle or public property, Reynaldo nevertheless found himself in the middle of a police investigation that ended with an unwarranted DUI arrest. After seeking our services, however, Reynaldo was able to get his DUI charge reduced to reckless driving.

Client Concerns During DUI case in Fort Lauderdale:

Not yet a citizen of the United States, Reynaldo could not afford to have a criminal record. A DUI conviction would have dire consequences on his immigration status, and held the strong possibility of deportation. For Reynaldo, who had been residing in the U.S. for over 20 years, this was extremely distressing.

Facts about the DUI Case in Fort Lauderdale:

Reynaldo had gotten into an altercation with an employee at a local bar that resulted in a serious injury to his face. After leaving the establishment, Reynaldo realized that he had forgotten his prescription glasses, and began to make his way back to retrieve them.

At some point, Reynaldo found himself stopped at a red light on Sunrise Boulevard. Having had transmission issues that caused a significant delay in his vehicle’s acceleration, Reynaldo was forced to press all the way down on his gas pedal to get his vehicle to begin moving. Unfortunately for Reynaldo, his transmission issues combined with the wet roads, resulted in a temporary loss of control of his vehicle that quickly transitioned into a jump up a curb, and an entry into a nearby field.

Officer Ras of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, who had watched the whole scene unfold from a nearby gas station, immediately made his way over to check up on Reynaldo.

But what initially began as a kind gesture, very quickly took a turn for the worse. Despite having committed no offense that would have required him to stay on the scene, Reynaldo nonetheless found himself a part of a police investigation.

Concerned about his own safety, Reynaldo dialed 911 in the hopes of receiving reassurance about his situation, and to verify the identity of the officers before him. He was then threatened with an extra charge (“misuse of 911”) for doing so. Sergeant Jonathan Bohm, of the Fort Lauderdale DUI Unit, then went on to request (not once, but four times) that Reynaldo submit to a Field Sobriety Test. Reynaldo refused, alongside a request for a breath sample. He was thereafter arrested by Sergeant Bohm on a DUI charge.

Strategy to fight the DUI Case in Fort Lauderdale:

The strategy for Reynaldo’s case centered around conflicting testimony provided by each of the officers on the scene. In order for an officer to make an arrest for a DUI, the arresting officer first needs to observe all the elements sufficient to establish probable cause. Yet, as recorded in the testimony of both Officer Ras and his backup officer, Officer Maupin, neither reported having observed the typical signs of alcohol impairment. Sergeant Bohm thereby made his decision of a DUI arrest off of what State Attorneys would agree, was insufficient evidence. Reynaldo’s DUI charge was thereafter dropped, and he remains grateful that we could help ensure that he continues to reside in the country that he has spent almost half his life in.

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!!!

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.
