All You Need to Know About DUI as First Offenders

Cost of Getting Charged

Just because you are a first-time offender doesn’t mean it won’t be pricy. Plus, it will also be a horrible mark on your record. Depending on the circumstances, expenses can go up to $4,000.

Punishment for the Violation

In addition, if you did not give any deep thought for your representation, you may cause more damage. Mistakes are hard to deal with, but not thinking about what to do afterward to clear up what the future might hold is harder. You might be imprisoned for up to six months in jail depending on the court’s decision.  You will also lose your driving privileges for 180 days or more, leaving you to resort to public transportation or getting rides from others to get to your destination. There is also community service which you need to complete for 50 hours.

What Not to Forget

One important thing to note is that the definition of drunk driving in Florida entails driving under the influence of inhalants, alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the three to the point of impairment. But drugs such as marijuana, oxycodone, and inhalants don’t have a standard level considered safe for driving in Florida, which means they automatically lead to an arrest.

Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”

Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."

Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”

The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
