DUI Defense Before We Start, We Listen to Your Story.

Cocoa, FL DUI Defense Attorney

Experienced Attorney Defending Your Case

Have you been arrested and charged with the offense of drinking and driving? At Steven G. Casanova, P.A., we understand the ramifications and long-term repercussions of a criminal conviction. A DUI record is one that will affect your reputation and could even impact your livelihood, depending on your occupation. It is imperative for you to understand that with the right representation, you can fight these charges, and possibly attain the results that you need for your future.

When you choose to work with us, your case will be handled by an attorney that has been working through these cases since 1999.

With more than 50 years of experience, we know what it takes to uncover the difficult aspects of a criminal charge. Cocoa, Florida is a densely populated city with many drivers on the roads throughout the day and night. Because of this, the prosecution may see drinking and driving as much more dangerous to others on the road. You need an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney on your side who can ensure that you are protected against false accusations, and that your rights are defended.

Penalties for Drinking and Driving

Florida has a BAC (blood alcohol content) limit of 0.08%, meaning that if you take a breath test that reads 0.08% or higher, you are considered legally intoxicated. The penalties for a conviction of a first offense could include jail time, fines, community service, probation, and others. If you are arrested for driving while intoxicated and your BAC reading was less than 0.08%, it is crucial to know that you could still be convicted of this offense, depending on the circumstances of your arrest. There are also a number of factors that, if present, will increase the severity of your charge and any penalties that ensue.

The following issues could increase your DUI charge to an aggravated DUI charge, and result in harsher penalties:

  • Driving with a suspended license
  • No current proof of insurance present
  • You were involved in an accident
  • Someone was injured or killed
  • You were transporting a minor
  • You have two prior DUI convictions within a certain number of years (3-12)

An aggravated DUI conviction will result in much harsher penalties. It is crucial that you are not unjustly convicted of a crime that you did not commit, and it is your right to have an attorney who knows how to navigate the legal system on your behalf.

    “Best Possible Outcome!”
    I recently referred a client to attorney Steven Casanova and I could not be happier with the result he obtained. Mr. Casanova's knowledge of criminal law and procedure, his years of experience in the courtroom, his great communication skills, the respect he has among his peers, his quick and timely responses to questions and concerns, and his true compassion for his clients makes him an extremely effective lawyer. Using these traits and his ability to strategize and negotiate, he recently and quickly achieved the best possible result for my client who I referred to him for criminal defense in a felony case. Way to go Steve! We all are extremely grateful.

    “I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.”
    I have had extensive experience with criminal defense attorneys (from $1,000 attorneys all the way up to the $100,000 attorneys) and can attest that Mr. Casanova is the best in town. He and his staff are top-notch. Mr. Casanova will hold your hand when you need it, but "tell you how it is!" It's rare to find such an honest attorney, especially one who is so talented. He is not a "bottom dollar" attorney, but his pricing is more fair than anyone in town, and he will not take advantage of you in your time of need like most attorneys in Brevard. He is highly respected by the state attorney's office, and is able to negotiate favorable resolutions, but this guy is darn-sure ready to go the distance when you have a strong case. I have sought his expert guidance numerous times, referred him to friends and acquaintances, and even my own family members. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Casanova for any and all criminal (and traffic) matters. I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.
