A drunk driving charge can have a negative and long-lasting impact on both your driving record and your criminal record. It's important to work with an experienced lawyer in order to mount a strong defense and minimize the impact of the charges against you.
DUI charges almost always come into your life unexpectedly. At Strand Law Offices, LLC, we will help you navigate the legal system no matter the circumstances that led to your traffic stop. Some of our clients simply didn't realize that a couple of drinks at dinner would put them over one of Pennsylvania's blood alcohol content (BAC) thresholds. Other clients knowingly got on the road while drunk. In every case, our goal is to push for the best legal outcome available and to ensure that the consequences you face are not disproportionate to your actions.
Some DUI defendants are eligible for alternative sentencing programs that allow them to avoid steep fines and jail time. First-time, nonviolent offenders, for example, may be eligible for Pennsylvania's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. This rehab program can help you get a DUI charge expunged from your record. ARD eligibility standards and program requirements vary significantly by county, so schedule a free initial consultation to hear more about the specific options available to you from a DUI defense lawyer.
