The Consequences Of A DUI Are Wide-Reaching And Long-Lasting

In Pennsylvania, even a first-time offender of the state's drunk driving laws will face steep fines, jail time, license suspension and increased insurance premiums. For repeat offenders, the penalties are even steeper, including mandatory jail time and license suspension of 12 months. For those holding a commercial driver's license (CDL), a drunk driving charge will almost certainly mean losing your job.

Our DUI defense is stringent. During our investigation, we take many factors into consideration, including the circumstances of any failed Breathalyzer tests. We examine why you were stopped in the first place, and if the officer had any probable cause to begin with.
