Since 1999, Steven G. Casanova, P.A. has been effectively defending the rights of local Cape Canaveral residents. With a proven track record, many years of experience, and unique advantages in DUI cases, you can look to us for the exceptional representation that you need on your side. Attorney Steven G. Casanova is a certified breath test maintenance technician, and he is an Intoxilyzer 5000 operator. This allows us insight into the BAC testing process that few other law firms can offer to their clients.
When you choose us, we will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest, and we will work to ensure that your rights are not violated, and that your arrest was lawful. Some of the issues we will carefully investigate include the following:
- If the police officer lawfully stopped you with probable cause
- If the breath test administered at the time of arrest was done correctly, and the machines were functioning accordingly
- Your cooperation with the police, and their treatment of you
We question these areas because without probable cause, the police officer cannot lawfully stop you, and therefore, you cannot be legally charged with a crime.
DUI Offenses in Cape Canaveral
You have many different rights concerning any criminal charges that you face, and one of the most important is that you have the right to an attorney. You may be wondering if an attorney is really necessary in your case, and the answer is "yes." Without the proper DUI defense representation, you will be up against a prosecutor with years of experience and a sincere agenda to see you convicted. The penalties for conviction of a DUI offense could range from license suspension, community service and fines to years in jail.
If you were involved in an accident and someone was injured or killed, then your charges could be escalated to aggravated DUI, which carries much more severe penalties upon conviction. Whether you are charged with your first DUI offense, or you have several prior convictions, and you are facing aggravated DUI charges, you can look to us to stand by you and fight for your rights. We know how to effectively traverse the legal field and provide you with the defense that you need.
