Protecting the Rights of First-Time DUI Defendants
When you hire us to protect your constitutional rights in a DUI prosecution, we will fully investigate the facts of your case, looking first to see if you have legitimate defenses that could result in the dismissal of any charges against you. We will carefully review the circumstances of the traffic stop to determine whether police had probable cause to pull you over. We will also verify that you were properly notified of your rights before you made any statements to law enforcement officers. We will confirm that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were correctly administered, and that any critical evidence has not been tainted.
Serious Representation When You Have Serious Legal Problems
If the charge you face is your first for driving under the influence (DUI), we have other options available to minimize the consequences of a conviction. We can get you into Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD), a diversionary program similar to probation. As a condition of acceptance into the program, you will have to meet certain requirements. If you meet them, you can avoid incarceration, reduce the length of your license suspension, and have your conviction expunged (removed) from your record. However, if you fail to abide by the terms of the program, you will be removed and will face your original DUI charges again.
We provide a free initial consultation to anyone charged with a crime. To set up an appointment with an experienced Bedford, Huntingdon, Hollidaysburg, Williamsport and Altoona first DUI offense attorney, contact us online or call our office at 814-317-0011. We take all major credit cards.
