You Need a Florida DUI Lawyer Who Will Go to Bat for You

First time DUI offenders need a Florida DUI lawyer who will step in to help them participate in Florida’s DUI Diversion program. Successful completion of the program will get your case dismissed and ultimately expunge the case from your criminal record forever.

Admission to the DUI Diversion Program is based on the facts of your case and it is at the discretion of the state to admit or deny acceptance of a DUI offender into the program. TK Law Firm is a staunch believer in this valuable program; our attorneys have significant experience with it, and we will work hard to help you gain admission and help guide you through the steps during the program.
