Florida has some of the nation's toughest laws for driving under the influence (DUI), even for first-time offenders. Most of our clients, though, are good people who have made the bad choice of driving home after having a few drinks. We are committed to minimizing the damage that DUI arrests bring to the lives of our DUI clients. The potential damage that first DUI conviction can bring includes:
- High fines
- Driver's license suspension
- Jail time
- An arrest record
As a former public defender and state prosecutor who has defended and prosecuted hundreds of drunk driving cases, Orlando DUI defense attorney Corey Cohen has the experience and training in DUI cases necessary to give you a competitive advantage.
We Ask the Tough Questions
Even if you know you were driving while drunk, it is a good idea to retain a lawyer to defend you. As a first-time offender, you may be eligible for a pretrial diversion program that will result in the charges being dismissed. We can also advocate for your rights by asking key questions, such as:
- Did the officer have a valid reason for pulling you over?
- Did the officer violate proper procedures in any way?
- Were the field sobriety tests administered properly?
- Were the results of the breath or blood test accurate?
DUI defense lawyer Corey I. Cohen can explain your legal options, and provide support and aggressive representation throughout the entire DUI legal process. As a former prosecutor and public defender in Florida, Mr. Cohen has strong insights into how to strategize a case based on his knowledge of prosecutors' tactics.
Our firm has helped hundreds of first-time drinking and driving offenders obtain probation or a reduction in charges through negotiation and alternative sentencing measures, such as alcohol or drug counseling, and community service and driver's education. If a pretrial diversion is not possible, we will look at every aspect of the evidence for mistakes that can get your case dismissed or the charge reduced.
