What to do when you are pulled over for DUI in Florida

A night out on the town can turn into a night behind bars if you drive with a blood alcohol content that is over the legal limit. Today, there are several convenient alternatives to getting behind the wheel after a night of drinking, such as calling a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or the old method of selecting a designated driver. When it comes to avoiding a DUI conviction, the best advice that we can offer is to choose one of these alternatives from the get-go, as many drivers who drink fail to realize the extent of their drunkenness until they are pulled over by law enforcement. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, there are upwards of 30,000 DUI arrests each year in Florida alone. In our practice, we deal with these arrests on a daily basis, and there are some things you should know in case you are pulled over for a DUI.

Why every Florida driver needs uninsured/underinsured coverage

Unfortunately, there are many drivers on the road who choose to ignore insurance laws and view liability coverage as optional. This is evidenced by the fact that, according to the Florida Insurance Council, as many as 23 percent of drivers in the state may be uninsured. Staggering numbers like these make it clear that every driver needs coverage against uninsured and underinsured drivers. This is how you are protected.

Why unmarried fathers need to establish paternity

If you are married and have fathered a child, you will be considered that child's legal father in the eyes of the law. If you fathered a child outside of wedlock, however, there is no automatic "assumption" that you are the father. This means you will have to take some necessary steps to prove yourself a biological parent if you would like the same rights and privileges as a married father.
