In Pennsylvania, fines for drunk driving can cost thousands of dollars, your license may be suspended and you may face jail time. The penalties for DUI/DWI are strict, but can still be negotiated.
With offices in Media, West Chester, Philadelphia, Doylestown and Norristown, The Benari Law Group has extensive experience representing people who have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal narcotics or prescription drugs. We know the DUI court system, and we use tried and tested methods to have charges dismissed or have penalties substantially reduced to protect your record.
Unlawful Evidence Cannot Be Used Against You
State and federal rules determine whether or not evidence is reliable. Our criminal defense lawyers will review the facts of your case with scrutiny and examine the state’s evidence for error or unlawful obtainment. Often, we are successful in proving that the police improperly stopped your vehicle or searched you illegally. Our examination may also show that the chemical testing process was contaminated, or that the testing equipment used was faulty or improperly used.
Whether your DUI case involves alcohol, illegal drugs or even prescription or over-the-counter medications, having a member of our experienced legal team on your side can make a huge difference. Joined with our knowledge of DUI law, our negotiation and litigation experience make for a powerful defense.
Underage Drinking And DUI
In addition to fines and other immediate penalties for underage drinking or DUI, the offense goes on your child’s permanent record. This makes it harder to secure a job or to be accepted to priority schools. Protect your child’s career and education prospects by hiring a lawyer who can defend his or her record and advocate for an alternative sentence.
A Note For First-Time Offenders
If this is your first DUI arrest, it may be in your best interest to consider Pennsylvania’s ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program. Only first-time offenders are eligible, and the program allows you to skip lengthy court procedures and the stress of trial. Contact us for more information.
