DUI Charges Can Be Fought

The cost of a drunk driving charge is easily underestimated. People often think about the fine itself. They forget about related costs, the most significant of which is often the increase in insurance premiums. They may also not be aware that time behind bars is a possibility.

When the costs of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge are added up, it is clearly worth fighting. And these charges can be fought. At Begley, Carlin & Mandio, LLP, our attorneys come to these cases with decades of criminal law experience. We know how to find the flaws in the evidence against you and will use that information to seek a win a dismissal or, at the very least, a reduction in the charge or penalties.

Drunk Driving Charges Are Not Like Other Criminal Charges

DUI charges are uniquely complex in that there is an administrative process in addition to the criminal case. To protect your driver's license, you may have a Department of Motor Vehicles hearing with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). This is separate and not necessarily dependent upon your criminal case. Our lawyers can guide you through both processes with the intent to minimize the overall impact and keep you behind the wheel if possible.

The Legal Limit

You may think that your fate is sealed because you blew over the legal limit. Keep in mind that this evidence is not flawless. Breathalyzers may be handled improperly. They may not have been calibrated or maintained prior to use. The police officer may have violated your rights when conducting the traffic stop. All of these details could impact the outcome of your case.
