DUI Lawyer Eric D. Stevenson - Pensacola, Crestview and DeFuniak Springs Florida

Anyone who has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence can tell you that the criminal and driver’s license procedures for DUI are complicated and confusing. The biased field sobriety exercises, the breath, blood, or urine test, the time in jail, the publication of one’s name in the paper, and the upcoming court dates can all be overwhelming. If you were pulled over and accused of driving under the influence, you need to hire a DUI attorney who will fight for you at every point in the process.

Eric Stevenson, known locally as the DUI Guy™, has been practicing law over ten years, two of those years as a prosecutor, and devotes a large portion of his practice to DUI defense. He regularly takes DUI cases to trial in both Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, and makes appearances in both state and federal courts. He is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the National College of DUI Defense. He also attended the college’s 2007 Summer Session at Harvard School of Law in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has been interviewed in newspapers, television, and radio and has given many lectures and spoken at seminars regarding DUI’s.

Mr. Stevenson’s experience in DUI’s includes challenging reasonable suspicion for a stop, probable cause for arrest, the admissibility of breath, blood, and urine results, and numerous trials. He uses experts when necessary to challenge the government’s evidence and is well versed in the methods law enforcement uses to gather evidence against defendants in DUI cases. Much of the evidence the officers gather in their investigation is based upon bad science and faulty assumptions. Because a DUI is based mostly upon opinion evidence, Mr. Stevenson studies the manuals and literature officers use in their investigations to better exploit the bias the tests have against defendants. As a Pensacola DUI lawyer, he is also familiar with the officers who make most of the Northwest Florida DUI arrests and knows the most effective ways to cross examine them and undermine their cases.

Most DUI defendants are completely unfamiliar with the criminal process and its complexities. Mr. Stevenson helps clients navigate through a system that is seemingly foreign and daunting. His representation ranges from misdemeanor DUI’s to DUI Manslaughters, and he knows the care and support clients need through these difficult times. Prosecutors know that Mr. Stevenson comes to court prepared, so they know to treat his clients with respect.

If you have been arrested for DUI, you need a skilled advocate to represent and guide you both in the courtroom and through all steps of the legal process. Effective DUI representation requires meticulous pre-trial preparation, thorough research, strategic planning, and comprehensive interviews before ever stepping foot in a courtroom. You need to have a lawyer who is willing to invest the time and energy in your case necessary to present a strong defense. As a well known Pensacola DUI lawyer who prepares thoroughly for trial, Mr. Stevenson provides his clients with representation unmatched by any other Pensacola DUI attorney.
