Aggressive Defense for DUI Charges

St. Augustine DUI Accident Lawyer

Arrested? Call our St. Augustine DUI defense attorneys now.

Driving under the influence (DUI) offenses in Florida are often met with some of the harshest penalties in the criminal justice system. Prosecutors will enforce even more severe penalties in cases involving injury, accident, or death, certainly as a response to the growing number of drunk driving accidents and fatalities. Our St. Augustine DUI attorneys have successfully protected individuals who have been involved in DUI-related accidents.

Accidents that have resulted in:

  • Bodily injury and/or property damage
  • Serious medical injury with a risk of death
  • Disfigurement
  • Serious organ injury
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Wrongful death or death of an unborn

If your DUI incident was the cause of an accident, you could be facing serious penalties. In situations involving death, you could be facing life-changing criminal allegations of DUI manslaughter, which can constitute a felony of the first or second-degree.

Do not risk going through this legal battle alone. You will need the legal counsel of a seasoned professional who knows how to protect your rights, interests, and freedoms. Choose Taylor & WaldropAttorneys to be your trusted legal advocate at this time.

We Come Highly Recommended

  • It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney.

    “When I first contacted Mr. Taylor, I was about 8 1/2 years into a legal battle with my former wife. The divorce was final in 2013 but my former wife continued to push for more with court appearances and appeals. At my consultation, Mr. Taylor was already as well prepared as I could have hoped for. I honestly felt more at peace about things than I had in years. When we first started talking, I felt he was wanting to get to know me which I believed was very important to him. When we started talking about the case, he shared his thoughts about the history as he saw it, explained what his approach was going to be, and asked me if I was OK with how he wanted to proceed. I appreciated how much time he obviously spent preparing for my consultation and how he wanted to be sure I was comfortable, and confident, in how he wanted to handle the case. The whole time, I never felt I was talking to an attorney and that it was business only. It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney. Within a year, it was over. The only reason it took that long was the time the court took but I was confident it would end once he submitted our response. Mr. Taylor is a great, knowledgeable attorney, that cares about one thing, and that is his clients. Very personable man that made me feel at ease, always communicating everything in ways I could understand and always asking my input. Everything about my experience was awesome, I can never say thanks enough for what this firm did for me. I can't leave out Jess Hardy. She's a great part of this law firm.”
