In Florida, motor vehicle offenses often carry some very serious penalties that can not only affect your driving privileges, but your freedom as well. If you drive under the influence, it can end up being far more than just a fine and a suspended license. If a person dies as a result of your driving under the influence, you could find yourself being charged with DUI manslaughter, and that can mean serious trouble.

Before you make a statement to law enforcement officials, you really need to speak with Florida criminal defense attorney, Robert Malove.  Mr. Malove has established a very strong track record of success in these types of cases, and when it’s your freedom…your future on the line, you cannot afford to settle for inadequate legal representation.
