One of the hardest things about a drunk driving or a driving under the influence (DUI) charge is not knowing what is going to happen and having no idea how to fight a charge. Most people have no understanding of how the legal process works. However, the prosecution does.

At the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, our Fort Myers DUI defense attorney understands how the legal process works too. We will use our skill and knowledge to help you build the strongest possible defense against drunk driving charges.
