Florida has extremely harsh penalties for a simple DUI, including fines, probation, and driver’s license suspension – and that’s just for a first offense. But even for a first offense, there’s still the possibility of jail time, especially in the city of Miami, where prosecutors are particularly tough on DUI’s. The sentences for a second and third offense are even worse, and – depending on what occurred as a result of the DUI or in the process of the arrest – it can even go to a felony charge!
Another reason you need to contact a lawyer immediately is that you only have 10 days from the time of your arrest to challenge it and get a DHSMV hearing. If you don’t do this in 10 days, your license can be suspended even if your case is dismissed!

Jeff Ivashuk understands the science behind the infamous “Breathalyzer” test, and he has first-hand knowledge that breath and blood tests – and especially field sobriety tests – are not always 100% accurate. Most people have no idea that – depending on a number of circumstances – it may take very little to affect a person’s blood alcohol content (BAC) so that they “blow” a .08% on a Breathalyzer test. There are many extenuating factors that can affect how quickly the blood alcohol level rises in a body, and this can and will be taken into account if your case goes to court, so you need a lawyer who knows how to turn those factors in your favor in order to avoid the devastation that a DUI conviction will mean.
Sometimes a person will just “give up” and plead guilty when facing a DUI, figuring that trying to fight the charge is hopeless and they have no other option. Jeff Ivashuk wants you to know that this is completely untrue, no matter what your circumstances were at the time of your arrest. What most people don’t realize is that many DUI cases can be fought and won by an aggressive lawyer skilled in criminal defense, and Jeff Ivashuk has the expertise to do just that. He served as the lead attorney for both the Broward County Public Defenders office and the Domestic Violence Court office for 7 years, simultaneously. He’s licensed to practice law in the entire state of Florida, including the U.S. Federal District Courts, the Southern District Courts of Florida, and the Florida Supreme Court. He’s a member of the Florida Bar, the Federal Bar, the American Trial Lawyers Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Jeff Ivashuk knows Florida’s legal system inside and out, and he has particular knowledge of the courtrooms, judges, and law enforcement authorities in the greater Miami area, so let him put his experience to work for you!
