If you’ve been accused of DUI in Pennsylvania, your best option, and really your only option, is to fight back. The reason is simple: if you plead guilty to DUI, you will be found guilty of DUI – 100% of the time. And if you don’t think that’s a particularly big deal, keep reading.
A DUI conviction in PA brings a long list of penalties, including:
- fines ranging from a few hundred to thousands of dollars
- a hike in your insurance rates
- a possible suspended license
- possible jail time ranging from a few days to even years
And your pain and suffering won’t end there. Years after those punishments are just a memory, your DUI conviction will remain on your permanent criminal record, where any potential employer, bank officer, or nosy neighbor can look it up. And it will stay that way for the rest of your life, even if you never, ever break the law again.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can fight back. With the help of the right DUI lawyer – an experienced, aggressive attorney who understands DUI law – you may even be able to reduce your charges or win your case altogether.
Remember: being accused of DUI doesn’t automatically mean you’re guilty of DUI. For you to be convicted, the state has to prove their case against you in a court of law. Just like any trial, a lawyer by your side can make all the difference.
DUI law is complicated. It’s not a good idea for you to represent yourself in a DUI case, or to bring in just any lawyer, like a friend of a friend or a relative. You need an experienced DUI lawyer with specialized DUI training who can stand up to the state’s evidence and witnesses on your behalf.
You might think that hiring a specialized DUI lawyer is expensive. But look at it this way: given the steep fines, increased insurance rates, and potential loss of license and livelihood that comes with a permanent DUI conviction, can you really afford NOT to fight your DUI?
