All Leesburg Driving under the Influence cases are serious, even if it’s a first time misdemeanor DUI. The DUI statute in Florida requires an adjudication of guilt for all DUI cases. That means a DUI record for the rest of your life. If you have a breath test over .15% or prior DUI convictions the charge can become more serious. If you have a prior within the last 5 years, or 3 DUI convictions with a prior in the last 10 years or there was an injury or death involved, Jail or prison is a realistic possibility in Leesburg, Eustis and Lake County. DUI cases have defenses and we can help you. Attorneys Kevin J. Pitts and associates (352-508-7575) have handled over 500 DUI's including DUI's with property damage, kids in the car, felony DUI, DUI under the influence of heroin, cocaine, oxycodone, and marijuana throughout Central Florida and in Lake County.
A new waiver is available for first time DUI cases. This only involves the administrative suspension of your driver's license and a decision must be made within 10 days. With the change in the law it is important to speak with an experienced DUI attorney that can explain the advantages and disadvantages of the new administrative waiver. If action is not taken within 10 days your license will be automatically suspended and the waiver is no longer available.
The counties in Central Florida all treat DUI cases differently. Some counties have diversion programs and other counties reduce DUI cases to reckless driving if you are close to the legal limit. Lake County wants to convict you of DUI- they do not have diversion and don’t reduce your case unless the prosecutor is concerned about evidence being suppressed or losing at trial.

Hiring an experienced Leesburg DUI attorney can help level the playing field for you. An attorney can file motions to suppress the stop, detention, arrest, field sobriety exercises, refusal and breath test if proper procedures are not followed. The risk of evidence suppression improves the odds of getting a reasonable offer from the Assistant State Attorney. If evidence is suppressed your chances of winning at trial can be drastically increased and in some cases the prosecutor cannot go forward. Each case is unique and the only way to make sure your rights are protected is to discuss your case with a Leesburg DUI attorney. Call Lake County DUI attorneys Kevin J. Pitts and Associates today.
