In a DUI arrest, many wonder if possessing a prescription from their doctor can clear them of a drug charge
. In these cases, prescriptions make it clear that the patient had an excuse for having and consuming the drug. However, it does not make it right for the driver to go behind the wheel after taking their medication. This idea is similar to alcohol access. Adults are also able to buy the substance but their age is not a shield against drunk driving. It is extremly difficult to establish the precise amount consumed at the time of the arrest. If charged with a DUI in Tampa, you want one of the best DUI defense lawyers at Hillsborough Defense.

The team at Hillsborough Defense also pursues injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of clients and families that have been affected due to the negligence of others. Unfortunately, insurance companies are known for taking their time and for making people jump through hoops, which is the last thing you need if you have been seriously injured and are missing work. A good personal injury lawyer
can liaise with the insurance company and help to speed up the process. And you won't pay us until and unless we win your case and get money for you - it's what is called a contingency fee. If you've been injured in an accident, don't hesitate to get the support and help you need. Contact Hillsborough Defense today and schedule an initial appointment with one of the leading personal injury lawyers in the area.
If you'veve been charged with domestic violence, Brett Metcalf is the only one you want representing you. The state's attorney office, in all domestic violence cases, will make the decision of whether or not to prosecute the case. The state attorney still can decide to prosecute a case even when the alleged victim doesn't want to. If your family member accuses you of domestic violence following a heated argument, then rescinds the accusation later, you still might be faced with a trial. That is why it is crucial to contact us as soon as possible to start to build a domestic violence defense in order to keep your record protected.
Domestic violence cases are unique as well since they cannot be expunged or sealed with a "no contest" or guilty plea. That is why you need to have an attorney to help you through the process. If you choose to plead guilty or "no contest," the charges will be on your record. Your life will be impacted for many years following the incident. If you are convicted of domestic violence
again later, your prior charge will turn the new charge into a felony charge that includes a prison term of up to 5 years.
Our firm defends the assets and parental rights of individuals going through the emotional divorce process.
Every client we represent expects the best result possible and that is exactly what we intend to achieve. Every day.
