The Law Offices of Alan S. Bernstein P.A. has built a strong track record of aggressively defending individuals charged with DUI. Because of the numerous complexities involved in handling these types of cases, it is vitally important that you obtain an experienced DUI practitioner. Alan S. Bernstein has that experience. His practice has focused on the defense of Driving Under the Influence for over thirty (30) years. He has been a member of the National College for DUI defense since it’s inception. He has taught at the National College for DUI defense and has taught other students and attorneys on the Intoxilyzer machines used in Florida.
Because Driving Under the Influence increases the chances of causing an accident, injury or death, judges and prosecutors seek harsh punishments for DUI offenders. Individuals convicted of DUI face multiple legal penalties, including monetary fines, probation, community service, rehabilitation, driver’s license suspension, and a permanent record.

OUR GOAL IS TO MINIMIZE YOUR UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE AND WE ARE DEDICATED TO ACHIEVING THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS FOR YOU UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.
There is a big difference between being arrested and charged with a crime and being convicted of a crime. People get arrested every day in South Florida for driving under the influence (DUI), of drugs or alcohol and other criminal charges. But being charged with a crime does not make you guilty of that crime! A DUI charge is not something to be taken lightly.
If you have been arrested for DUI, then you are facing a Serious Life Altering Event and you need to make some important decisions immediately?
YOUR DUI CHARGE IS NOT JUST ANOTHER TICKET! This type of charge cannot be handled correctly by a traffic ticket attorney. An attorney that does mostly tickets may take an occasional DUI, but may miss critical strategies in defending one properly. Think of it like this: Would you go to a dentist for him to perform open heart surgery? Just because he's a doctor, doesn't mean he is qualified and experienced to perform all types of surgeries. It takes a great amount of experience and training to tackle the defense of a DUI.
Here is why:
-A DUI in Florida is a mandatory conviction!
-A conviction means that you were found guilty of a crime and your DUI record cannot ever be erased, sealed or expunged. The conviction will never go away, It could affect your present and future employment, admission to graduate schools, military options, and insurance rates. In fact your insurance rates could skyrocket to as much as $3,000 to $5,000 per year for the next three to five years.
Your driving privileges could be completely revoked.
These are only a few of the many reasons why a DUI charge should be fought vigorously.
And once you get arrested, you have no time to lose. A DUI charge in Florida carries with it a mandatory license suspension, and you have only ten (10) days to appeal the suspension. Can you imagine trying to get to work, school, shop for groceries or pick up your kids from school when you have no driving privileges at all?
DUI cases are winnable, and it is possible to have your DUI charge dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense. But that doesn’t happen just because the driver is a good person. It happens because an experienced DUI defense attorney can expose certain defects in the state’s case the the prosecutor might not have seen.
Don’t settle for anything less than the best possible DUI defense. Your future is important, and we know that, and we are dedicated to defend your case like we were defending a family member.
When we commit to a case, we conduct our own investigation, interview eye witnesses, negotiate with prosecutors, and challenge evidence brought against our clients.
