Steven G. Casanova, P.A.: Defending the Accused Since 1999

At Steven G. Casanova, P.A., we know what is at stake after an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), so we work to the fullest extent of our professional and ethical abilities to secure a satisfactory outcome for every client. The law can be unforgiving, and the legal system can often feel impersonal and isolating. We can protect your rights during this time so that you can move on after a run-in with the law and return to living your life normally.

As a member of the National College for DUI Defense and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Attorney Casanova knows exactly what is needed to create a compelling, creative, and effective defense strategy. No matter how complex you think your case may be, know that you do have protections under the law. There is no amount of evidence that can take away your right to have a Melbourne criminal defense lawyer at your side.

What penalties could I be facing?

As in many states, Florida prosecutors are determined to penalize convicted DUI offenders harshly to eradicate unwanted behaviors that are a risk to the public. Though law enforcement may be earnest in their efforts to keep the roads safe, many individuals have been wrongfully arrested or penalized unfairly.

Even a first-time conviction can result in severe penalties, such as:

  • Fines not exceeding $1,000
  • Up to 6 months jail sentence
  • Up to 1 year of probation
  • Community service
  • Possible vehicle impoundment
  • Possible drivers' license suspension for up to 1 year
  • Possible installation of ignition interlock device
  • Permanent criminal record

If we are able to determine that a sobriety test yielded inaccurate results, or if an officer violated a search and seizure regulation while attempting to obtain a result from you, we can file a motion to suppress evidence against you. Our tireless approach to defending the accused has helped our clients secure favorable outcomes where other attorneys have failed.
