Punta Gorda DUI Attorney

Arrested for Drunk Driving?

Drunk driving in Florida is a serious offense; an offense that needs to be aggressively defended to protect your freedom and your reputation. If you have been arrested for DUI, you are facing a number of consequences, including:

  • Court cost
  • DUI school
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Points on your driving record

If you have prior convictions, the penalties will significantly increase in severity. Additionally, a DUI conviction may damage your reputation, making it difficult to maintain your job, get a new job, or succeed in your career.

If you are facing DUI charges, contact the Law Office of Joseph Lombardo, Jr., P.A. in Punta Gorda now to schedule a free consultation with an attorney. Call 941-621-2840.

For more than two decades, I have been aggressively fighting DUI charges in Charlotte County. I have handled many jury trials, and I am able to help clients understand trial proceedings and their legal options for defense, whether through plea negotiations or at trial.

Driver's License Suspension

If you have been cited for DUI, you can drive on the ticket for 10 days. After the 10 days, your license is suspended unless you request an administrative hearing to determine whether there was probable cause to take your license. In addition to your criminal matter, I handle all administrative hearings regarding probable cause for your driver's license reinstatement.

Reckless Driving Charges

When possible, I will strive to get your DUI charged reduced to a reckless driving charge. This is a lesser included offense and if convicted for reckless driving, you will not have your license suspended, your car impounded, and you won't have the ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. Most importantly, you won't have a DUI on your record.
