Tallahassee, Florida and Valdosta, Georgia DUI Defense Attorney - Gus Soto

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense that can quickly turn into a nightmare. A DUI arrest not only places your driving privileges in jeopardy, it can also subject you to harsh fines and penalties, including significant jail time. You made a mistake and now your life has been turned upside down. Whether you are in Tallahassee, Panama City, Valdosta, Thomasville, Jacksonville, or another city in the North Florida or South Georgia area, Attorney Gus Soto is an experienced drunk driving lawyer who will help you deal with the legal charges you are facing so that you can get your life back in order.

Both Florida and Georgia take DUI/DWI cases very seriously. The DUI laws in these states are strict and the consequences for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can be severe. Even if this is your first drunk driving conviction, you could face thousands of dollars in fines, a lengthy jail sentence, and a long suspension of your driver’s license. Additionally, if you have been convicted of a DUI before, or if a person has been injured as a result of your DUI accident, the fines and penalties are likely to be even more severe.

If you are facing charges as serious as a DUI you cannot afford to go it alone. You need to have a strong attorney on your side who knows what it takes to successfully defend a DUI case. When you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Florida or Georgia, your lawyer will need to act quickly. Your driver’s license can be taken away by the state if you fail to request an administrative hearing within 10 days of the date of your arrest. If you don’t take action within the 10 day period, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.
