Blood Alcohol Content
Florida BAC Laws
A person's blood alcohol content (BAC) level is the most reliably used source of evidence used to establish someone's innocence or guilt in the DUI charges made against them. In the state of Florida, a BAC reading of .08% or higher is enough to convict anyone of drinking and driving. The most common methods of testing a suspect's alcohol content is through the use of breath and blood tests.
Florida law makers and enforcers operate under the assumption that an individual's faculties become significantly impaired when their BAC level is at or above .08%. Therefore, those who are charged with DUI and left to face the
penalties of such a conviction are those who have blown a .08% or higher. When this is the case, it is imperative to seek defense representation from a
Miami DUI lawyer who can help challenge the charges that have been made against you.

The general guidelines that law enforcement officers follow when it comes to levels of BAC and drinking and driving charges may vary from state to state. On the same note, different people will be affected by alcohol differently, and not all people will suffer the same impairment from a BAC of .08%. For this reason, attorney Michael Mirer has dedicated his professional time to defending those who have been accused of DUI based on the level of their blood alcohol content.
Mr. Mirer's extensive experience in the field of criminal defense has taught him that no case is clear-cut or black and white. He has seen a number of instances in which breath tests and field sobriety tests reflect inaccurate results regarding an individual's level of intoxication. Even the most minor error in the application or use of one of these tests could dramatically affect the results of the reading, and hence the results of the verdict. Therefore, Mr. Mirer thoroughly reviews the intricate details of each case that comes his way in order to unearth any unlawful acts or irresponsible behaviors that could have led to a false accusation of DUI offense.
