Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

A conviction for Driving Under the Influence (“DUI”) of either alcohol or a controlled substance in Pennsylvania can lead to jail time, loss of your driving privileges, and significant fines. For many, the penalties associated with DUI cases can lead to substantial hardship in both their personal and professional lives.

The law pertaining to DUI cases is constantly evolving. This is because these types of cases often involve legal issues pertaining to the illegal seizure of evidence—i.e., blood samples and breathalyzer results—along with scientific issues relating to the operation of the breathalyzer equipment and proper forensic testing of blood samples.

A skilled attorney who is knowledgeable in the area of DUI law can spare you mandatory jail time and the loss of your license.
