Defending Your Rights Against Illegal Stops
The law is very specific with regard to the rules that must be followed in the process of making a DUI stop. If those rules are not followed, it may constitute an illegal stop and a violation of your rights. If you are facing charges for DUI and feel like the stop was unreasonable, you should contact an experienced defense lawyer to discuss the possibility that your contact with the police may have constituted an illegal stop. DUIs carry extremely serious penalties, including jail time and the loss of your driving privileges, you deserve strong representation.
When law enforcement officials overstep the bounds of their authority, be sure that you have an advocate on your side who will fight for your rights and hold the police accountable to the law they were sworn to uphold. At the Pennsylvania law firm of Applebaum & Associates, we aggressively protect our clients against illegal stops for DUI and the consequences that they face if convicted of a DUI.
Holding Law Enforcement Accountable
Pennsylvania DWI law operates on the principle of reasonable suspicion rather than probable cause. Reasonable suspicion is a lower threshold which means that it is easier for the police to find a reason to stop you. That does not mean, however, that they can stop anyone for any reason. When you hire our firm, we will look at every aspect of your case and see that everything was done in accordance with the law.
