Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) in DUI Cases

Arrested for Driving with a High Blood Alcohol Level?

Before a DUI arrest, a driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) – also known as blood alcohol concentration or blood alcohol level – can be tested by the use of breath tests, blood tests and urine tests.

The most common method by far is the breath test due to its ease of use and speed of result. However, as a Jacksonville DUI defense attorney can demonstrate in court, the breath test is subject to many errors in administration and is hardly a reliable test of BAC. Blood tests and urine tests as well have points of unreliability.

Legal BAC in Florida

In order to have an objective test of DUI, legislators across the country (including Florida) have adopted laws that define having a blood alcohol content (BAC) of or over 0.08 percent as creating a presumption of drunk driving.

    "Excellent attorneys and staff"
    My family has worked with Mr. Porter several times over the years. Each of our experiences were different but the outcome was the same. We all had extremely positive results. I have referred many friends and family to Mr. Porter for assistance, and I will continue to highly recommend the firm to anyone in need of legal services.

    "Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand."

    When I got into an accident, I didn't think I needed a lawyer. However, everything was so confusing and the insurance company was being very pushy. Once I decided I needed to contact a lawyer, I wasn't sure who to call. On the recommendation of a friend who had used him in the past and had a very good experience, I called Jason Porter. I was given an appointment the next day and it was during that appointment I knew I had contacted the right law firm. Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He assured me that I would not need to do anything but to get better and he was right! He and his amazing paralegal handled everything so I didn't have to deal with all of the confusion of the insurance company while trying to heal from the injuries I sustained in the accident. Ultimately my case was settled with the insurance company and I received a very fair settlement. I am hoping I never have to use a lawyer again, but if I do, I will definitely be contacting Mr. Porter again.

    "He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community."

    I first met Jason Porter in 2003, when our children attended a Christian Preschool together. I saw what he did within our community. He helped many of the families from the preschool over the years so when it came time that my family needed a lawyer I chose him. Jason has helped my family and several of my personal friends, all with positive outcomes. He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community. You will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion. I don't know another lawyer of his caliber that offers free consultations and you speak to him personally. Pick Porter.

    I used them for a personal injury case. They were professional, attentive, and got me an acceptable settlement in a timely manner. This helped greatly to get me back on my feet financially. Thank you very much.

    "You couldn't find a better lawyer anywhere."
    I haven't had a lot of legal problems in my life but enough to truly evaluate my attorneys. By far Jason Porter makes you feel like you are his only client. He knows the law and the legal loop holes. To boot he is a heck of a nice guy. You can trust him with your life. You feel that he loves his work and really cares about you. You couldn't find a better lawyer anywhere.
