Criminal Defense & DUI

Good people sometimes find themselves in bad situations. We understand that and that’s who we fight for.


If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney is the single most important thing you can do and it should be done right away. As an experienced criminal defense attorney our firm will immediately begin investigating your case and protecting your rights.


Our attorney, Adam J. Lee has extensive experience in the area of criminal law, having been a former prosecutor, whose criminal law practice has brought him into every courtroom and in every county in the Eighth Judicial Circuit. As a former prosecutor, I know first hand the immense resources the State uses to prosecute and convict people. I also know their limitations and their frequent mistakes. These insights are invaluable tools that I use in helping my clients prevail in their case.


Criminal court can be a scary place. When you hire Adam Lee Law PLLC to represent you in a criminal matter, we will file the necessary paperwork to appear in court on your behalf. Oftentimes, our clients never even step foot in a court room. If you do need to appear in court, we will prepare you, and be at your side, every step of the way.


A criminal charge can carry penalties that range anywhere from a monetary fine up to and including probation and imprisonment. An arrest, and especially a conviction, can have long-lasting consequences that include negative impacts on your current and future employment, education, insurance, and many other opportunities you may have down the road.

To minimize the adverse effects of a criminal charge, you should hire an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to begin protecting your rights. We have extensive experience handling criminal cases in Alachua, Levy, Bradford, Union and Gilchrist counties. These include cases such as:

  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Driver’s License Suspensions
  • Traffic Offenses
  • Possession of cannabis
  • Open container
  • Underage drinking
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Trespass
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Public Intoxication
  • Hazing
  • Criminal Mischief

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Perhaps more than any other crime in the state of Florida, many good people get arrested for DUI. You can be arrested for having a few beers at the bar or just a couple glasses of wine at dinner. Despite this fact, a DUI is one of the most serious and life-impacting crimes a good person can be charged with. Here are just a few of the terrible consequences of being arrested for a DUI:

  • A driver’s license suspension of up to one year
  • A cancellation or drastic increase in premiums of your car insurance
  • A mandatory criminal conviction and permanent criminal record
  • Mandatory probation
  • Up to six months jail time
  • A possible fine of $1,000
  • Adverse employment and education consequences, including job loss and suspension or expulsion from school


When you get arrested for DUI, there are essentially two cases you must fight at the same time. The first is the criminal case. Equally as important, however, is the fact that the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) will administratively suspend your driver’s license. You only have 10 days to request a hearing with the DHSMV to challenge your suspension. When you hire our law firm, we will fight both cases on your behalf – the criminal proceeding and the administrative hearing.


A DUI arrest can happen to anyone—do not beat yourself up if you are arrested. Focus on all of the positive things you have going on in your life and let us accept the heavy burden of your difficult situation. Let us fight on your behalf.
