If you’ve been accused of a sex crime and are in need of legal help, we can help.

- Driving Under the Influence
Under Port Orange, Florida law, DUI is driving a motor vehicle with an unlawful blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of .08 or above. A DUI conviction can cost anywhere from $500 to $2,000, depending on the level of alcohol found in your system. You may also face mandatory community service, at least one year of probation, and possibly jail time. Other issues you may face include your car being impounded, a felony conviction if you’ve been convicted three or more times of a DUI, manslaughter or vehicular homicide charges if anyone is killed as a result of a crash, and your driver’s license being revoked. A DUI conviction also has personal consequences such as a poor reputation, relationship stress, and potentially a job loss and trouble finding work in the future. If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence, you need an experienced attorney on your side who will help you understand the legal process and more importantly, make sure your rights as a citizen are protected.

If you’re facing drug charges, whether possession or trafficking, you’re probably wondering if it’s possible to get your charges dropped or penalties lowered. Avallone Law P.A. has years of experience helping clients to get their possession charge or their drug case dismissed.
In Port Orange, a possession charge means the person was most likely holding a small amount of drugs for personal use. Possession of most controlled substances in Florida, except for the medical use of marijuana through a doctor’s recommendation, may be charged as a felony. State law does allow a first degree misdemeanor charge for simple possession of marijuana in an amount less than twenty grams.
Penalties for drug charges can include fines, community service, probation, and jail time. Consequences of these charges can be hefty, especially if it’s your second or third offense, the charge includes intent to sell or traffic, or if the drugs in question include heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, or methamphetamine. If you’re facing drug charges, you need an experienced attorney like Larry Avallone at your side.
- Traffic offenses
It may not always be necessary to hire an attorney for a minor traffic offense, but serious traffic offenses can result in heftier penalties like expensive fines, your driver’s license being suspended, points on your driver’s license, community service, probation, and even jail time. If you’re facing charges such as leaving the scene of an accident or reckless driving, hiring a lawyer is crucial for the outcome of your case.
