Feb. 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Barry Taracks from Taracks Gomez & Rickman, a Tampa DUI law firm won in court on 2/13/2012. Attorney Taracks’ client was facing multiple charges including: DUI, DUI with Property Damage and Improper Lane Change in case numbers 6355-XBN, 2538-SVR, and 8271-SVP.

Mr. Taracks’ client was twenty-seven-years old at the time when he was involved in a motor vehicle collision on I-75 Southbound in Hillsborough County, at which time the defendant crossed over into an adjoining lane and struck a tractor trailer. Shortly thereafter, Florida Highway Patrol was called to the scene of the accident where they subsequently conducted a DUI investigation after allegedly observing the odor of alcohol on the driver’s breath.

Taracks’ client admitted to drinking alcoholic beverages prior to the accident and he performed “poorly” on the field sobriety tests according to the police report. The driver was then arrested and charged with DUI after he provided a breath sample. His blood alcohol content (BAC) registered at 0.14%, nearly twice the legal limit in the state of Florida.

Tampa DUI attorney Barry Taracks observed a technical flaw with the state’s case. He then used his “observation” to set the tone for the upcoming trial. On the morning of the trial, attorney Taracks presented a convincing argument before the presiding Judge, who was inclined to agree with his reasoning.

Accordingly, the state of Florida subsequently reduced the defendant’s charge to Reckless Driving. Taracks’ client avoided a DUI conviction, his license was not suspended for 6 months and he was not required to carry SR-44 insurance. Furthermore, the state dismissed the remaining charges, including DUI with Property Damage.

As illustrated in the case above, no matter how dire your situation is, a powerful and effective DUI attorney has the potential to steer your case in a far more favorable direction. That is, as opposed to facing the full administrative and criminal consequences associated with a DUI conviction. Taracks Gomez & Rickman is a Tampa DUI law firm that is not run by average attorneys; they have three former prosecutors  on staff who use their knowledge and experience within the criminal justice system when defending their clients against criminal allegations.
