DUI Charge in Fort Lauderdale, FL Reduced by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Client’s Second DUI Charge Gets Reduced in Fort Lauderdale by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Outcome of DUI Case:

After a discussion with the State Attorney related to the legal issues in the case and the fantastic mitigation Mary had completed since arrest, the offer on the case went from: DUI, 10 days in jail, 12 months probation, 12 months driver’s license suspension, a breathalyzer for 12 months, and much more, to DUI dropped to a Reckless Driving with 0 day jail, 6 months probation, no Driver’s License suspension, and no breathalyzer. The State Attorney remedied the case via a breakdown of the DUI to reckless driving.

Client Concerns about DUI Charge:

Mary J. was worried that her outcome would be much worse since this was her second arrest for DUI within 5 years.

Facts on DUI Case:

In the State of Florida to be found guilty of DUI, the State needs to prove that you were under the influence of alcohol while either driving or being in actual physical control of the vehicle. When an officer doesn’t actually see you ‘driving’ the car on the road then the only other way you can be legally charged with DUI is if you were found to be in “Actual Physical Control.” In March, Mary was arrested for her second DUI within 5 years in Fort Lauderdale. When the officer arrived on the scene, he observed the front two tires of the car to be so flat that the rims were touching the floor. In fact, photos of the scene show one tire entirely off of the car and a spare-tire taken out for replacement. During the crash investigation, in this case, it was concluded that the damage had rendered the vehicle “inoperable” by one witness

Strategy of Attack on DUI Case:

At the DMV hearing, the arresting officer was questioned about the case intently by Manny. Manny asked him a flurry of poignant questions related to our defense. The officer admitted to never seeing the defendant driving the car. The officer admitted to never seeing the vehicle in movement on a roadway. The officer admitted to finding the vehicle in the condition depicted in the pictures. The officer admitted that such a vehicle could be considered inoperable – but he would not 100% commit to whether he thought the car was inoperable or not. Nevertheless, it was a victory. Adam took the officer’s testimony from the DMV Hearing and evidence to the State Attorney.

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.
