Have you been pulled over for suspected DUI more than once? Twice? How about three or more times? The state of Pennsylvania does not take repeat drunk driving offenses lightly. If you find yourself facing yet another DUI charge, how you fight your case in court matters.
Your first DUI offense may not have seemed like that big of a deal. You agreed to chemical testing, were convicted and walked away only having to pay a fine. On your second DUI offense, you refused chemical testing, were still convicted and had to serve a minor jail sentence, pay a fine, endure a license suspension period and install an interlock ignition device on your car. If you stand accused of a third DUI offense, the penalties can be quite severe if you are convicted this time around. Maximum penalties for a third DUI offense include years behind bars, thousands of dollars in fines and extended license suspension.
With so much on the line, having an experienced criminal defense attorney at your side to help you fight your case would likely prove beneficial for you. Legal counsel will have the ability to investigate the accusations against you and question any evidence offered. In doing this, it may be possible to achieve a case dismissal or a reduction in charges.

You have the right to defend yourself in a Pennsylvania criminal court and fight for the best outcome possible.
