Choose A DUI Defense Firm That Has Handled Hundreds Of Cases
A DUI is a very serious charge. You could face loss of your driving privileges, large fines, probation, extended suspension of your license or jail time. In addition, you may pay higher rates for auto insurance or lose your coverage. Because a DUI conviction is not expungeable, it will remain on your record for life and may also prevent you from getting certain jobs.
But a DUI charge is not an automatic conviction. There are defenses to drunk driving charges, and The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates can help you explore every one. As a former state prosecutor who has defended and prosecuted hundreds of drunk driving cases, DUI defense lawyer Corey Cohen founded this Orlando law practice on a strong base of knowledge and experience. Our dedicated team of defense attorneys can give your DUI case a distinct competitive advantage.

Don’t Wait, Or You May Lose Your License And Face Other Problems
Many DUI deadlines can be easily overlooked such as contesting the suspension of your driver’s license. If you or your lawyer misses these deadlines, you may waive your legal rights and set yourself up for serious penalties such as:
- At least 180 days driver’s license suspension
- $500 to $5,000 in fines (and more for aggravated DUI)
- Imprisonment for up to five years (fourth conviction DUI)
- Impoundment of your car for at least 10 days
- Mandatory community service
- A criminal record
Our defense lawyers at Corey Cohen and Associates know the deadlines and what is at stake. They will act quickly to ensure your rights are protected in both your DHSMV license suspension hearing and your criminal drunk driving case.
Attacking Your Drunk Driving Case, Defending Your Future
When our attorneys take a DUI case, they attack it. They will do everything they can to pick your case apart and find the best defenses available to you. Questions they will ask include:
- Did police officers act appropriately during your DUI stop?
- Was their search legal? Was your arrest legal?
- Was your breathalyzer test result inaccurate? Did officers properly perform your field sobriety test?
- Was the DUI blood test evidence properly handled in the chain of custody?
- Did your BAC increase between the time of your traffic stop, and your breath or blood test?
Even when clear defenses are not available, it may be possible to negotiate a better resolution to your case. When you hire us, we will do everything possible to prevent the suspension of your driver’s license at the DMV hearing, and we will aggressively work to have your charges reduced or dismissed in criminal court.
We will thoroughly investigate all the circumstances and details that led to your arrest; we can identify all mistakes in police procedure and build a defense strategy based on the unique issues of your case. We will also lessen your stress by educating you regarding the legal process and your rights.
Are You Thinking Of Representing Yourself?
It is surprisingly common for a person facing a DUI charge to decide not to get legal help. Do not make this mistake. A DUI arrest is not just another traffic violation citation. If you do not respond to your charge promptly, then in just 10 days, you will lose your right to appeal the six- to 12-month automatic suspension of your driver’s license. You will also eventually miss the chance to pursue a pretrial diversion or seek to have your charges dismissed, which would then allow you to have your record sealed and expunged.
No Matter How Challenging Your Case, We Can Help
Most DUI cases we accept are challenging. Perhaps you are convinced you were drunk at the time of your arrest. Maybe you are worried about attorney’s fees. Maybe you believe that pleading guilty will allow you to “move on.”
We fight DUI charges from many directions, and can question police procedures and tactics, and the accuracy of breath test machines. We are careful to control costs and keep you informed of how much each option will likely cost.
Our team includes board certified criminal defense lawyers. Let the experienced attorneys of The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates & Associates fight for you after a DUI arrest. For a free consultation with one of our lawyers in Orlando, call 888-390-8937, or email our law firm.
