St. Petersburg BUI Lawyers

Defending the Rights of Clients Throughout the State of Florida

Most us are very aware that driving under the influence is dangerous and that there are laws in place to punish drunk drivers. However, many people aren’t aware that similar laws are in place to prosecute those who choose to operate a boat while they are intoxicated. Just like driving a motor vehicle, law enforcement can stop a boat if they suspect the person operating the vessel is drunk.

If you are charged with boating under the influence (BUI), you face the possibility of going to jail and having to pay expensive fines. Depending on your criminal record, you might face additional consequences, such as losing your license or strict probation. In addition to these penalties, your reputation can be severely damaged, which can impact your ability to find gainful employment.

Our lawyers at The Fleming Law Group, P.A. understand that being charged with BUI can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, which is why we are here to stand by your side and guide you through every step of the legal process. We will protect your rights and use our full resources to defend and restore your reputation and good name.

Call (727) 202-4858 to get assistance with your BUI case today.

BUI Defense Strategies

Law enforcement use the same testing methods for DUI to determine if a boat operator is intoxicated. From breathalyzer tests to field sobriety tests, there are a number of ways that police can assess a person’s level of intoxication. However, these methods are not full proof, and a skilled lawyer will know how to cast doubt on testing that was used to charge you with BUI. We can challenge the effectiveness of the testing equipment and establish that you were not intoxicated at the time of your arrest. Talk to our lawyers today to get started building your defense strategy.
