Evaluating Your Florida DUI Case
The first thing to look at in a DUI case is the stop. A law enforcement officer must have a stated legal ground to stop your vehicle. Sometimes an officer made believe that a driving pattern justifies a stop, when legally that may not be correct.

—> Suppressing the evidence

An experienced Florida DUI attorney will be familiar with case law and rulings regarding stop issues. You should discuss these with your attorney. Also, there are specific statutory rules and procedures that must be specifically adhered to regarding the offering and taking of a breath test, blood test, or urine test.
If these procedures are not followed, the results of any these tests may not be admissible in court. Florida has what is called an implied consent law. It is implied that you have consented to a breath test if the officer has cause to believe that you are driving under the influence. However, you do have the ability to refuse or decline this test. Under certain circumstances, an officer may also request a urine test. This is most often for
the detection of control substances are chemicals. There are also certain rules in regards to the manner of this request and the admissibility of the results.
