What To Do If You Get a DUI Charge in Palm Beach County or Jupiter FL?

As a Jupiter DUI attorney, I have to remind you that you must be aware of one very important matter and that is your driving privileges will be suspended as a result of this arrest. You have 10 days from the date of arrest to request either a formal review hearing or an Eligibility review waiver hardship permit from the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles Bureau of Administrative Review before the suspension takes effect and you totally lose your ability to drive. Attorney Darren Shull can handle getting a work permit and/or setting up a hearing for you to challenge the license suspension and make arrangements before any “hard”(can’t drive for any reason) suspension takes effect depending upon the timing.

Recent Update in DUI Law

The DMV Bureau of Administrative review Office is now closed in Palm Beach County making it more difficult to get a work permit in Palm Beach & Martin Counties.


As of June 1st, 2013 in Palm Beach County, the State Attorneys Office has set up a special first time offenders program for citizens arrested for DUI. The first offender DUI program may allow you to avoid a DUI conviction.

You may qualify for the program if the following is applicable to your case:

  • A first DUI offense/arrest.
  • Valid drivers license at the time of arrest.
  • Blood alcohol content of less than .200.
  • There was not an accident.
  • There are no controlled substances involved, INCLUDING marijuana.
  • No children or pets in the car.
  • No prior state prison sentence.
  • No pre-trial diversions
  • Plea must be entered at a satellite courthouse.
  • No prior filing of motions or demand for discovery or jury trial.

Many folks arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) do not qualify for the first offender program for different reasons. Ultimately it’s the State Attorney’s decision as to who is allowed into the program. If you have been arrested for a serious traffic offense such as DUI you should never risk going into court unrepresented where you have no idea what may be offered to you to resolve your case and the implications of accepting a plea. The mistake a Pro Se person could make can have a lifetime of negative consequences.

At the Law Offices of Darren D. Shull we have represented numerous people who initially did not qualify for first offender program who were then accepted into the program after a thorough review of their case to determine the viability of the States case.

Note, even if another driver is partially at fault in a fatal accident and  if you are also partially at fault & impaired, you can be charged with DUI Manslaughter.
