How Can I Beat a DUI Without a Lawyer?Driving under the influence is a serious business. In Florida, a DUI charge stays on your record for up to 75 years and can follow you into job interviews, loan applications, and other court appearances. It can affect nearly every aspect of your life.
The Legal Information Institute defines a DUI as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol to the point of impairment. Each state sets its limits, but in Florida, the legal limit is a BAC (blood alcohol content) or BAL (breath alcohol level) of .08. A BAC of .15 can result in much harsher penalties. If it is your first DUI, you may receive some leniency in your sentencing. However, a second or third DUI carries much heavier punishments and truly requires the legal advice of a qualified attorney.
You should never drink and drive, but sometimes mistakes happen. And you should not have to carry this mistake with you for the rest of your life.

With the help of an attorney, you have a much better chance of beating your DUI charge than pursuing your case solo.
A qualified criminal defense attorney will likely know more about the legal process of a DUI charge than the average person. Crime shows like CSI and Law and Order routinely provide false information about the process of a criminal charge, and many people rely on this sort of information to determine their own best course of action. They may think that they are experts in their own right and don’t need the help of an attorney to fight their case. However, the truth of the matter is that certified practitioners of the law have spent years learning what those hour-long episodes cannot possibly teach.
Without an attorney present, you are entirely at the mercy of police officers and the court. Many times evidence is mishandled or illegally acquired. You are more likely to obtain a thorough examination of all evidence against the investigative help of a defense attorney. Having an extra pair of eyes never hurts. When those eyes have years of experience fighting cases similar to yours, your chances to beat your charges go up exponentially.

This is known as pro se legal representation. Pro se cases are rare, but they can happen. Frequently this type of defense does not end well for the defendant.
Pro se legal defense requires you to present your case to the court promptly. You can assess the evidence against you, examine it, and search for any discrepancies. It will then be up to you to compile your argument and present it in court.
Judges usually take pro se cases less seriously than those which have proper representation. There is a bias against those without experience, who will be considered unprepared to argue a case properly. The proper legal terms and formalities must be followed in order to make a coherent case.
