STEFAN CAMPAGNA, ESQUIRE
Sarasota Criminal Defense Lawyer
A Criminal, DUI, Drunk Driving or Impaired Driving arrest in Sarasota or Manatee County, Florida can happen to anyone. Having alcohol or drugs in your system can provide a prosecutor with evidence to use against you, but conviction does not always follow an arrest. Our Sarasota and Manatee County Criminal, DUI and Drunk Driving defense team can provide you with advice, answer key questions and guide you through the criminal legal process.
Being a good Sarasota and Manatee County criminal trial lawyer is critical to being a good DUI and Drunk Driver Defense lawyer. Many lawyers have a reputation of just taking pleas on DUI and Drunk Driving cases. The prosecutors know who those lawyers are and since they know that the lawyer won’t take the case to trial the State Attorney has no incentive to work out a favorable deal for you. Our willingness to take cases to trial (with our clients’ consent) lets the State Attorney know that we will not merely plea if they offer you an unreasonable settlement.
In Sarasota and Manatee County Florida you are breaking the law if you are driving any type of vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or above. The .08 percent BAC limit is the standard measurement used across the United States for the "impaired" driver.
