Fighting Back Against DUI Charges

If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI), you face a life-changing experience. If convicted of drunk driving charges, you may face the loss of your job, harm to your reputation, increased insurance rates and heavy fines as well as the loss of your license. If you are divorced or in the process of getting divorced, the consequences can be even worse, as your child custody and visitation arrangements can be negatively affected.

Even if it is your first DUI offense in Pennsylvania, you may experience the loss of your license and jail time in certain circumstances. If it is your second or subsequent DUI, the penalties are even greater, as you can be charged with a felony. As a result, regardless of whether it is your first or subsequent offense, you need an experienced and aggressive lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected. Contact us as soon as possible to assert your rights.
