At Taracks & Associates, we know how detrimental even a single DUI conviction can be to otherwise law-abiding drivers. Our skilled and insightful Tampa 1st-Time DUI lawyer was also a former prosecutor who knows how to best combat the state's case against our clients. No matter what the details of your DUI charge may be, our firm has the knowledge and resources to ensure you receive every consideration you deserve.

Do not plead guilty until you know your legal options. Contact our team today to request a free case evaluation.

Penalties for First-Time DUI

One of the most challenging things about a DUI conviction is that it doesn't just come with a simple fine or suspension-- it comes with multiple penalties that can greatly interrupt the life of the accused. Depending on the severity of the driving incident, Florida state law may also provide augmented penalties against a driver, as well.

Possible penalties for a first-time DUI in Florida include:

  • Fine between $500 and $1000
  • Maximum jail time of six months
  • Minimum license suspension of 180 days
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Vehicle impoundment

If your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .15% or greater, these penalties may be greater. Many of these penalties are at the judge's discretion, which is why it is important to have knowledgeable and compelling counsel by your side. At Taracks & Associates, our Tampa attorney knows what issues to look for in these cases when pursuing a reduction or dismissal and always ensure that our clients' rights and interests remain a priority.
