Understanding DUI And Habitual DUI Charges
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, and they will use this to their advantage.
At the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, our two-attorney defense team understands how the legal process works too, and we will make sure you understand your rights and options from beginning to end. We will use our skill and knowledge to help you build the strongest possible defense against drunk driving charges so you can protect your driving privileges, your job and your future freedoms.

We Pursue Every Avenue To Give You The Best Defense
At the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, our legal team will comb through every piece of evidence and testimony that led to your drunk driving arrest. We will search for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. If they are there, we will find them. The burden is on the state to prove guilt, not on us to prove innocence.
We will advise you on all issues that may confront you, including whether your case is strong enough to take to trial. We are not afraid to ask the hard questions such as:
- Was the stop legal?
- Was someone else in the car drinking, not you?
- Were the field sobriety and breath alcohol testing techniques used by the law enforcement officer consistent with his or her training?
- Did the police officer overstep his or her boundaries in any way?
- Was excessive force used on you?
- Was implied consent read to you?
- Were you told you have a right to an attorney?
- Did police have probable cause to search your vehicle?
Habitual DUI Charges And Losing Your License
In Florida, a first-time DUI conviction can lead to the revocation of your license for up to a year, while a habitual DUI conviction can mean losing your driving privileges for the rest of your life.
Handling a DUI charge on your own, especially one as severe as habitual DUI, can be risky. Most people wouldn’t know how to ensure the protection of their rights or develop a defense strategy that could get the charges against them reduced, dropped or dismissed, much less the rules of criminal procedure or courtroom etiquette, but we do.

We will vigorously fight for your rights. We will clearly explain your situation and the options that are available to you. This will enable you to make informed decisions about how you wish for us to handle your defense.
