That’s a short question, which requires a very long answer. Every case is different, but here are the basics. First, you MUST call us right away. In Broward County, you only have 10 days to file to get your license back. This is the civil (license part) of your case. Second, you need to hire a lawyer to fight your charges (the criminal jail part). A DUI conviction can affect your job, ability to drive, get credit and stay free. You could go to jail for up to a year or more if it’s not your first DUI. There are so many other issues that we would need to discuss, but suffice it to say, call your lawyer before you call anyone else.
