Trust An Experienced Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
We begin every case by listening to you discuss the specific facts of your case. Depending on the facts, you may have strong defenses available. For example, your arresting officer must have probable cause to have stopped your vehicle. If there is no probable cause, your case should be dismissed. We can challenge the arresting officer’s observations if there appear to be discrepancies or issues. There may also be problems with chemical testing or field sobriety tests. Any problem with any part of your case could lead to a dismissal of the charges. When you hire our law firm, take comfort knowing we will attack the government’s evidence at every opportunity.
In other situations, the prosecution may have a strong case. In these situations, we may be able to obtain a better outcome by showing the court and the prosecutor that you are taking proactive steps to address your problem. We can recommend a drug and alcohol treatment program or other programs in advance of your sentencing that could lead to a reduced sentence.
You may also be eligible for accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD) in certain situations, which could lead to the potential dismissal of your charges and expungement of your record. Every step we take will be geared toward improving the final disposition of your case.
License Suspension And Revocation
In Pennsylvania, the length of a potential license suspension is based on a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) and the number of prior offenses. The penalties increase, based on whether the defendant’s BAC is from .08 to .099, .10 to .1599, or .16 and above. Our law firm will work diligently to minimize these potential penalties.
