Fighting drunk driving charges may be in your best interest

When charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Pennsylvania, especially if it is for the first time, it can be tempting to just accept whatever punishment the court is ready to hand down. You may feel you cannot fight the charges anyway, so what is the point? The truth is, fighting drunk driving charges -- especially if this is your first offense -- may be in your best interest.

Once convicted for drunk driving, this is something that will remain on your record. That means if you face similar charges in the future, you will be considered a repeat offender. Why does that matter? Consequences. The consequences for repeat offenders are far greater than for those who are first-time offenders not involved in an accident.

It may feel impossible to fight drunk driving charges, but that is not always the case. Police are not perfect and sobriety tests are not 100 percent accurate. There may be a way to achieve a dismissal or reduction in charges, but you won't know that if you choose not to fight for yourself.

Facing prosecutors in a Pennsylvania criminal court can be frightening. You will be in their arena, which will be unfamiliar to you. You can help yourself and help your case by having someone with experience in that arena at your side. There are never any guarantees that drunk driving charges will be dropped or reduced, but an experienced criminal defense attorney will fight tooth and nail to help the client achieve the best possible outcome.
