DUI/DWI

Attorney in Deland, Florida: DUI/DWI Defense

Experienced Representation ◊ Former Deland/Daytona Beach Prosecutor

If you have been arrested and charged with DUI or DWI, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. The consequences of a conviction can be devastating, including the loss of driving privileges, increased insurance premiums, the impoundment of your vehicle (including the use of an interlock device), substantial fines and even jail time. At the office of Donald B. Dempsey, Jr., Attorney at Law, in Deland, I bring over 22 years of experience to individuals who have been arrested and charged with DUI or DWI. A former Deland/Daytona Beach prosecutor, I have a comprehensive understanding of the criminal law and procedure in Florida. I have extensive trial experience and will help you work toward the best result, whether through a plea bargain or in court. For a private meeting to discuss your case, contact my office or call me at 386-738-1159.

Representing Local Residents and Tourists

I represent residents of central Florida, as well as tourists or others who have been charged with driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated. Many of my clients are individuals who have come to the state for the Daytona 500, Bike Week or spring break. For those clients, I may be able to resolve all the issues through the mail, appearing on your behalf if the proper paperwork has been filed.

When you hire me to represent you in the defense of a drunk driving charge, I will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts, circumstances and evidence surrounding your arrest. I will review the police record to determine whether there was probable cause to make the traffic stop. I will verify that you were properly advised of your rights before you made any statements to the law enforcement officer. I will also examine the Intoxilyzer or blood alcohol tests to determine that they were correctly administered.

Though my objective will always be the dismissal of charges against you, in situations where that is unlikely, I will seek to minimize the penalties, helping you into a rehabilitative or diversionary program whenever possible. I will also work to get you a restricted license, allowing you to drive for business, work or other hardship reasons.
