Clearwater DUI Defense Lawyers

At the law office of Hoskins & Penton, our Clearwater DUI defense lawyers have helped numerous clients with traffic offenses. Drivers being charged with a first-time DUI penalty typically don't know what to expect or what the ramifications are. As experienced, well-established criminal defense attorneys we'll help you understand and work your way through the system and minimize the damage done.

Minimizing the Damage of a DUI Arrest

With a first-time DUI offense it is critical to hire an attorney as soon as possible. We guide our first-time DUI offenders through the system, working to have the DUI charge reduced or completely dropped. Our solid working knowledge of the courts helps us as we seek to reduce our clients' charges and to minimize the impact on their lives.

With proper representation, the first DUI charge can be reduced to a reckless driving charge; that will ensure fewer legal consequences in the event that there is a second offense. In the meantime, we ensure that our clients take actions that will help them in their case such as attending DUI school. We make sure our clients have completed the steps to qualify for a restricted license without delay rather than losing it entirely.

In the case of a second or third DUI offense jail time is likely, and can even result in mandatory prison time. In these cases we do our best to limit the time spent in jail to a minimum, recognizing its effects on both the client and his or her family. We also keep this in mind when defending you against a felony DUI manslaughter charge.

As your Clearwater DUI defense attorneys we do everything possible to keep any jail time to a minimum.

Our firm will tirelessly work to ensure the least possible impact on your license, and act to resolve your case quickly.
