WINNING A DUI IN PENNSYLVANIA

It is important to remember that any DUI case can potentially be fought and won in court, regardless of Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level at the time of arrest. It is possible to reduce DUI sentencing and fines or have them dropped altogether.

A 2016 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court may impact your DUI case – Read more about the recent Birchfield Ruling or call Attorney Shrager today for a Free Consultation.

DUI laws in Pennsylvania are some of the toughest in the country and cause thousands of people every year to lose their licenses.

A DUI Charge is Not a Conviction. Beating a DUI in PA is Possible.

Each case is unique and to fully understand your rights you should speak with an experienced Pittsburgh DUI Attorney.

DEFENSE STRATEGIES TO HAVE YOUR DUI CHARGES DROPPED

At Shrager Defense Attorneys, we will work rigorously and aggressively to defend your rights and have your DUI charges dropped or reduced. Some of the defense strategies for a DUI we may use include:

• An illegal traffic stop.

Under Pennsylvania Law in order for a police officer to stop your vehicle they must have reasonable suspicion of criminal activity such as drunk or drugged driving. If the stop was not legal, then we will request that the evidence be suppressed in order to have the DUI charges dropped.

• Not being impaired.

If the police do not have reasonable suspicion that you were impaired, they cannot legally proceed with your arrest.

• Not being the driver.

In order to be convicted, prosecutors have to prove that you were the person driving the vehicle.

• An illegal DUI checkpoint.

DUI checkpoints have to follow certain regulations and standards. If these rules were broken in any way it is considered an illegal checkpoint. We will make every attempt to determine whether the regulations were followed or not.

• Inaccurate police reports.

If there are any discrepancies in the police officer’s report or misleading statements, the prosecution has a flawed case. We will investigate closely the police reports and video surveillance to seek out any holes in the arrest process.

DEFENSE STRATEGIES TO HAVE YOUR DUI CHARGES REDUCED

If you are a first-time DUI offender, you have several options in order to have your DUI charges reduced, which could include a much shorter time of having your license suspended or being able to keep your license.

As experienced DUI Attorneys, we will work aggressively to have your DUI charges dropped. However, if that is not possible, below are some of the defense strategies for a DUI we may use to have your sentencing reduced:

• Pleading Guilty to Reckless Driving.

By pleading guilty to reckless driving you will receive a lesser sentence than if you were found guilty of a DUI.

• Pleading Guilty to a Traffic Infraction.

This strategy will not be a permanent mark on your criminal record, but you will still have to pay a fine and may still have your license suspended.

• Requesting Acceptance into ARD.

The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) Program in Allegheny County is for first time DUI offenders only but it essentially allows for the defendant to avoid a trial and have his or her criminal record expunged upon completion of the probationary and rehabilitative program.

An aggressive DUI Attorney will fight for you to be accepted into this program.

• Reduction of BAC Tier Level.

In certain situations it is possible for your DUI Attorney to fight for a reduction in the level of BAC, or blood alcohol content level, you were found to have at the time of the arrest. This can significantly reduce the amount of penalties you face.

Read the DUI Penalties page for more information.

APPEALING A DUI IN PENNSYLVANIA

If you have already gone to trial for a DUI and were convicted, it may still be possible to file an appeal.

The only way to know for sure is to speak to an experienced DUI Attorney — Call or text Attorney Shrager for a free consultation – 412-969-2540.

Even if you do not have a strong case for an appeal, an attorney may be able to negotiate a plea bargain to have your sentencing reduced.

WHAT CAN A DUI LAWYER DO FOR YOU?

If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence, a tough DUI lawyer can provide you with the aggressive defense, legal guidance, and resources that you need to battle your charges.

At Shrager Defense Attorneys, we will always fight for your rights and give you the best available options. However, you are always in control over your future and we will only take your case to trial if you want to keep fighting.

If you have been arrested for DUI, DO NOT WAIT – call an attorney immediately. By waiting to speak with an attorney, you may be inadvertently waiving your rights or spoliation of evidence could occur which will weaken your defense.

Doing nothing will most likely worsen your situation and cause you to have permanent marks on your record, not to mention hefty fines and a loss of driving privileges.

Attorney Shrager takes the time to help clients understand their situation. He will use all resources and his years of experience in winning cases to help you have your fines and charges reduced. He wants you to have your freedom back and will work diligently to protect your future.

Attorney Shrager will empathize with your situation and talk to you plainly about the consequences you may face, not in complicated “legal-eze”. His staff will never talk down to you or make you feel worse about your situation. We are here to help you understand the charges brought against you and the legal proceedings you face, so that we can better defend your rights.

Shrager Defense Attorneys will closely examine the police reports and squad car videotape to see if the police treated you fairly and if all evidence was collected legally.

We will prepare you for the preliminary hearing, which will determine whether or not your case will move forward to prosecution for a DUI.

Having an experienced lawyer who knows the ins-and-outs of these proceedings is essential to helping your case. It can make all the difference in whether or not your charges will be reduced or even dropped completely.
