Miami DUI Manslaughter Lawyer
The penalties for driving under the influence in Florida are always serious, however, they can become significantly more severe if the DUI resulted in an accident with injuries. If you are accused of causing a drunk driving accident that resulted in the death of another person, you may end up facing extremely serious felony charges and consequences.

Aggressively Defending Against DUI Manslaughter Charges in Miami
Many defendants facing DUI manslaughter charges believe they have no chance to achieve a favorable outcome in their case. Often, there may seem to be strong evidence of intoxication and the evidence that a death resulted is often undeniable. However, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can find many ways to defend against these charges.
Some examples of defenses in DUI manslaughter cases can include:
- Challenging the results of breath or blood tests that show you were over the legal limit;
- Challenging the proper administration of field sobriety tests;
- Demonstrating that the victim was the one who violated the law to cause the accident;
- Accident reconstruction experts to testify regarding cause in the accident;
- Keeping evidence against you out of court if it was obtained in violation of your constitutional rights.
While we take an aggressive strategy inside the courtroom, we approach every client as an individual with important rights and interests. We tailor every defense strategy to your individual needs and always keep you informed of what is happening in your case. We are always honest with our clients regarding their case strategy and will never pressure you to plead guilty simply to avoid trial if it is not the best outcome based on your circumstances.
