Protect Your Rights
Many people plead guilty to DUI charges because they feel they have no other choice. Before you plead guilty to a DUI charge, consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to ensure the protection of your rights.
Pennsylvania DUI laws are highly technical. Even if you were over the legal limit, you may have a viable defense. There are a number of ways that our attorneys defend clients who have been charged with drunk driving. We carefully review police conduct that led to the arrest of our clients to determine if any errors may be used to bolster their defense:
- Did your arresting officer have sufficient cause to stop your vehicle?
- Did the officer properly administer your breath test?
- Was the testing device working properly?
- Did the officer properly conduct your field sobriety tests?
- Did the officer violate your constitutional rights?
We will seize any opportunity to have the charges against you dismissed, and we are always ready to present the strongest possible case to a judge or jury in an effort to obtain an acquittal.
If this is your first DUI charge, you may be eligible for ARD, or Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, a diversionary program for first-time offenders. 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, a knowledgeable DUI attorney can help to minimize the impact of your DUI arrest and work on your behalf for entry into the program.
