DUI Defense in Pennsylvania
The best DUI attorneys in Pittsburgh and across the Commonwealth work very hard to get their clients through one of the toughest legal challenges there is: Defending a DUI charge. A client is facing many different high-stress issues almost at once, and in most DUIs, that stress starts when the attorney cannot be there to advise them on the first stressful decision of whether to submit to a field sobriety test, or refuse.
Driving Under the Influence laws in Pennsylvania operate like many well-oiled machine parts. After you are processed by police on a DUI, you may get a letter from PennDot stating that your driver’s license will be suspended. Once the criminal complaint from police is received by the DA’s office, DUI charges will be brought and officially filed with the court. The court will have mandatory penalties and guidelines to follow for a DUI case, and will assume that your case falls under at least one of them.
Your car may have been towed, and while all of this is taking place, you will wonder what your sentence might be, if you can keep your job, and how you will get to and from work without a license.
