What is a BUI?

BUI stands for Boating Under the Influence.  It is very similar to a DUI and is treated just as seriously.  The field sobriety tests given to suspected boaters under the influence are different than those given to drivers. The main reason is that the law enforcement officers often board your boat while it is still in the water.  When the boat is in the water and is rocking from the waves, it is very difficult to walk a straight line, so the police came up with other ways to test your coordination.  These tests as well as the breathalyzer are optional, and you should always ask to speak with an attorney before talking to any law enforcement.  Call Fort Lauderdale DUI Defense Attorney Grant Schwarz to begin building a case against your charges.

Client Reviews

Outstanding service from lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz.

Lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz provides outstanding service. I recently hired him for my case earlier this year and on the day of the trial it got dismissed with ease. Not only did that case get dismissed but my first case three years ago got dismissed as well with Grant by my side. Mr.Schwarz is a reliable lawyer who I would recommend to anybody having any sort of legal issues. Grant is an extremely caring lawyer who will answer all questions that you have and will respond to any e-mails, texts, or phone calls that you send his direction. I cannot forget to mention his confidence in the courtroom is amazing and it truly shows his greatness. Grant Ian Schwarz is the right lawyer for you. Thank you for everything Grant.
