DUI Defense Lawyer in Cocoa Beach

The Aggressive Defense & Unique Advantage You Need

Have you been arrested and charged with drinking and driving in Cocoa Beach, FL? Since 1999, Steven G. Casanova, P.A. has been representing criminally accused Florida residents, just like yourself. We know the courts, and we know what areas of your case the prosecution may try to attack in order to obtain a conviction.

When you choose us, you will receive representation that has been tried and tested for many years. We can implement the same strategies in your case that have helped us achieve success in the past.

We know what it takes to win, and we are prepared to stand by you throughout your case. Our founding attorney, Steven G. Casanova, is a certified breath test maintenance technician, as well as an Intoxilyzer 5000 operator. This means that we know when a breathalyzer is not functioning correctly, we know when your breath test is not valid, and we know all of the problems that arise with these kinds of machines – which are the kinds of things that the prosecution does not want us to know. This provides us with a unique advantage in Florida DUI cases, and you can be sure that we will use this to your advantage if you choose to work with us.

Cocoa Beach DUI Charges & Defenses

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be charged with a simple, first offense DUI. You could also be charged with aggravated DUI if you were involved in an accident where someone was hurt, you were transporting a minor, or one of many other factors are present. Naturally, the penalties for aggravated DUI will be much greater than those of a simple DUI offense. It is also important to know that you have the right to refuse a chemical test, but your license will be automatically and immediately suspended.

There are many different factors that will determine the severity of your charges, and by the same token, there are many different elements that can play a part in the defense of your case. Even though the legal BAC limit is 0.08% in Florida, you could still be charged with DUI if you blow a reading lower than the intoxication limit.

A few factors could also cause a BAC reading to turn out false:

  • If there is any alcohol in your mouth (even residue) at the time of the test, it will read higher
  • If you hold your breath for just a few seconds before blowing, the readout will be altered
  • If the machine was not recently calibrated, or is not functioning perfectly, your readout could be wrong

Why You Can Have Confidence in Your Attorney

The point of these examples is to show that DUI evidence can easily be faulty or compromised, and no one should be convicted based on bad evidence. Our firm will work to ensure that there were no mistakes made and that your rights were not violated during your arrest so you are given a fair trial. Steven G. Casanova, P.A. will also work alongside you to prevent any penalties for a crime that you did not commit.
