    It is very unlikely that any further action will result from this event - I am sorry that you had to go through this.

    Depending on what type of criminal traffic offense you are charged with, the case may be able to be resolved within a few days, while others may take months. Call around to local traffic court attorneys in Pinellas County. Generally, an attorney who routinely handles these types of cases will be more efficient, which should translate into a more competitive fee. (that you may be able to pay all at once).

    Depends if the charge is filed as a felony or misdemeanor DWLS, either may be possible given his prior record (although we don't know the conviction dates of the priors). He could be sentenced to 30, 60, 90 days or more, depends on the Judge and the facts / circumstances of his particular case. A private attorney would likely spend more time addressing the substance abuse issue and begin developing a plan to mitigate the sentence by suggesting in-patient treatment in lieu of incarceration....

    You could have likely avoided this whole situation had you not drawn attention to yourself by using such colorful language. In addition to the fines, you are also facing the possibility of six points being assessed on your driving record. You need to contact an experienced Orlando traffic ticket attorney to discuss your situation.

    The only thing you are going to accomplish by avoiding the mailman is getting your license suspended, which will result in more financial penalties and potentially, a criminal charge, if caught driving while suspended.

  6. If I choose to waive my right to a formal review hearing, can that be used against me as a submission of guilt in court?

    There are many reasons for waiving the formal review hearing, but a client's guilty conscience is not one of them. That being said, waiving your right to the formal review hearing would likely not be used against you in court. Even if the State tried to present it as evidence, it is not relevant and its probative value (if any) is greatly outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice. In light of all of the other evidence that is typically available in DUI cases, it would seem far fetched that...

    Since you didn't ask a question, we can't give you an answer. I just hope that you learned a lesson and you will not endanger others by drinking and driving again in the future.

    Yes, you need an attorney to fight this ticket on your behalf, but not just any attorney. You should hire an experienced traffic ticket attorney in your local area that routinely practices in the Orlando traffic courts (many attorneys will send direct mail advertisements, but they do not actually live or work in your local area, check Floridabar.org to verify attorney office locations). Only an attorney who routinely appears in your local court will be able to provide you with realistic...

    Fight it, but not on your own (that is never a good idea). Hire a local traffic ticket attorney (someone who handles tickets on a daily basis, not just a lawyer who dabbles in it) to help you contest this ticket. There is always the possibility that the ticket will get dismissed.

    Sounds like a standard negotiated plea for your type of charge, so long as adjudication is withheld. If you feel as though this offer is excessive, you should discuss that concern with your lawyer and discuss the other options available to you (trial, or possibly, PTI).
