Personal & Individual Attention for Your Tampa DUI Case

When facing a possible DUI conviction, it is important to understand that building a successful defense strategy is complex. This is why you need a DUI lawyer who has the training, education and resources to guide you through the legal process and to fight for your rights. A solid defense strategy will require a thorough review of each and every aspect of your case and the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

The Capaz Law Firm is dedicated to working hard on your case and providing you with individual attention. Whether you have failed or refused a breathalyzer or field sobriety test, your DUI lawyer will need to review the specifics of your case to determine how to best defend against your charges and to protect your rights. Each DUI case is different. What works for one DUI case might not work for your case.

From our first meeting, we will assess the facts and circumstances of your case that will form the building blocks of our defense strategy. We will analyze the State’s case carefully and conduct a meticulous investigation into all aspects of your case—including the basis of the traffic stop, the administering of field sobriety tests, the arrest, and the police investigation—in order to find any errors or mistakes made by law enforcement.

While investigating your case, your DUI defense lawyer might discover that the arresting officer violated your legal rights or made a material mistake. This or any similar occurrences could be used to change the course of your case in your favor by helping you to avoid a conviction, or by allowing you to obtain a reduced charge, or minimize the potential penalties. The more evidence that you have on your side, the better.
