DUI Defenses in Kissimmee
Can you challenge your Florida DUI charges?
Arrested for DUI? Afraid it's an open and shut case and you have to
accept your punishment? This is not true, there are many ways to challenge
a DUI case and win! At Melendez Law Offices, P.A., we are Kissimmee DUI
attorneys who fight battles for Floridians accused of DUI. Our legal team
fights for our clients' constitutional rights in Central Florida's
courtrooms. We fight hard for unpopular clients who are up against overwhelming
resources of the government.
With DUI charges, your attorney must understand the scientific and legal
processes that intersect in
DUI cases. We understand the science behind blood and breath tests as well
as how to negotiate a favorable plea bargain when the odds are stacked
against a client.
We all have rights - todos tenemos derechos.
Which DUI defenses work?
As in all criminal cases, with DUI you have a right to a defense and you
have a right to challenge the evidence. Did the officer have probable
cause to stop you? Are your chemical test results accurate? Was your field
sobriety tests conducted in accordance with federal guidelines? Was evidence
collected, analyzed, and stored correctly? Was there any police officer
Other defenses raised in DUI cases:
- You have a medical condition that caused a false blood alcohol reading.
- The breath testing device was not properly calibrated.
- You weren't read your Miranda rights.
- The arresting officer didn't follow the proper procedures.
- You were arrested at an unlawful DUI checkpoint.
As DUI defense attorneys, we are trying to do one or both of the following:
challenge the validity of your chemical test results; and/or attempt to
prevent those test results from being submitted to evidence based on legal
grounds. We have the knowledge and skills to do both.

While most but not all DUIs are prosecuted as misdemeanors, you don't
want to acquire a criminal record and this should be fought at all costs.
A permanent criminal record can affect immigration, and it bars people
from employment opportunities, certain licenses, and affordable housing.
With our help, your chances of receiving reduced penalties if not a dismissal
are far greater, and well worth the time and expense involved.
