Working to Keep You Out of Jail

ARD, or Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, is a diversionary program for first-time offenders of DUI (driving under the influence). ARD gives you the opportunity to avoid jail time, loss of your license and a criminal record if you successfully complete the terms of your ARD program. Not everyone is admitted into an ARD program, however. An experienced defense lawyer can help to minimize the impact of your DUI arrest and work on your behalf for entry into the program.

The Pennsylvania law firm of Applebaum & Associates has been successful in getting many clients admitted to ARD. We have extensive experience in these cases. We know the requirements and restrictions of the program, and we know what it takes to create a compelling argument to get you admitted. We understand what is at stake in these cases, and we work hard to help you keep your license and keep you out of jail.

Understanding Your Options

Being in the ARD program is similar to probation in many ways. It usually involves a period of supervision, meetings, DUI school and other requirements. Successful completion of ARD will expunge the drunk driving arrest from your record almost as if it never happened. Failure to complete the program, however, can result in all the original charges being reinstated and the full penalties applied, including steep fines and jail time.

ARD may not be for everyone. We will look closely at every aspect of your DUI case and give you an honest assessment of our chances in court. Your criminal defense attorney will help you fight the charges you face. Our goal is to have the charges dropped or a not-guilty verdict reached. If circumstances dictate, we will recommend seeking admission to the ARD program.

Our firm offers extensive drunk driving defense services. We represent first-time offenders, as well as people facing serious vehicular homicide charges, drivers’ license suspension and other DUI issues.
