DUI Defense

When you have been charged with a DUI you need good advice and need it now.

I represent people whether they are charged with a 1st offense DUI and getting ARD or taking a 4th offense DUI to trial.  My first rule is to always assume you and I are going to fight your case.  If you refused to give blood or breathalyzer, we can fight that.  Are there "Control issues" in your case because you weren't even driving, fight it.   Aggravated Assault while DUI, you have to fight that.  If fighting is not an option, then work out the best deal possible.

I have successfully fought a lot of DUIs.  Most DUI cases are won on suppression.  That is getting the evidence thrown out before trial.  The police can't just pull you over for no reason.  You must have broken some law to be stopped by the police.  Doing something like squealing your tires is not illegal in Pennsylvania and I have suppressed the evidence in several cases this way. 

I have also been successful in beating several cases where my client refused the blood test.  I do not advise clients to refuse the blood test because doing so causes you to lose your license for 12-18 months.  Refusing does create issues that can favor the defendant.

Areas where I have a lot of experience. 

  • ARD
  • IPP
  • Preliminary Hearings
  • Pretrial Motions
  • Trial
  • Suppression 
  • Jurisdiction
  • Probable Cause
  • Reasonable Suspicion
  • Car Accidents 
  • Blood Test
  • Breathalyzer    
  • Sentencing
  • Jail time
  • License Suspension 

If you have questions about any of these issues call now.  

I have been fighting DUIs for over 20 years.  In that time many laws have changed.  When laws change so do your tactics.  Not all cases are the same.  Find out what your best options are.
