We are experienced in DUI Defense in Tampa and the greater Tampa bay area, and we are trained to identify defenses and legal issues that may result in the dismissal of the charge.
In Florida, a person may be guilty of driving under the influence if law enforcement observes them driving or in actual physical control of a vehicle while their normal faculties are impaired by alcohol or certain controlled substances. At first glance it may seem like a straight-forward criminal charge, but DUI charges are one of the most complex offenses the State has the burden of proving. Most people are unaware of the fact that it's possible to be arrested, charged, and convicted of a DUI without having driven at all. That's why it is vitally important for anyone who has been arrested or charged with Drunk Driving in Tampa to immediately contact an experienced DUI defense lawyer who knows how to navigate the charge of driving under the influence.
Our firm is driven by the details of every criminal case. Mr. Green's approach to legal representation is to engage principled, and think-tank driven, legal strategies; he realizes each individual case is as unique as a human fingerprint. Experience proves the devil is in the details, which is where he invests the firmâs resources, time, energy, and focus when navigating his clients' legal matters.
