Our DUI / DWI Defense Practice
We handle all matters related to an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving after imbibing (DAI), from the administrative hearing to determine the status of your driving privileges to the criminal proceeding to establish guilt or innocence, as well as penalties. We work with first-time as well as repeat offenders.
When you hire us to protect your rights in a drunk driving case, we will conduct a full investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest, starting with a determination of whether police had probable cause to make the traffic stop. We will also examine the police report and question witnesses to verify that you were properly advised of your rights before making any statements. We will confirm that field sobriety tests were correctly administered and that law enforcement officers followed all prescribed rules when performing a blood alcohol test.
We are intimately familiar with the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, a diversionary opportunity for first-time DUI offenders in Pennsylvania. We will help you establish whether or not you qualify, complete and submit all necessary documentation, and will appear on your behalf at any meetings or hearings during the process.
