WHAT YOU NEED TO
KNOW ABOUT DUI

HOW LONG WILL IT STAY ON MY RECORD?

In the state of Pennsylvania, DUI convictions can remain on your record for 10 years. During that time, the conviction will be counted against you if you are ever convicted of another DUI. Fortunately, DUI convictions can be cleared from your record if you have a skilled attorney to walk you through the process.

WHAT IF IT’S MY FIRST OFFENSE?

In Pennsylvania, you can be convicted of a DUI if you’re operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content level over 0.08%. For a first time offender, you can only be sent to jail if your BAC level is over 0.10%. A typical jail sentence can vary between two to three days depending on your BAC level.

WHAT IF I’M NOT 21?

If you are under the age of 21, the maximum blood-alcohol level you can have in your system while operating a vehicle is 0.02%. The DUI penalties for individuals under 21 can be very strict. They can include a mandatory license suspension for up to 12 months and a fine ranging from $500 to $5,000.

NO MATTER HOW BAD YOU MAY THINK THE SITUATION IS,
YOU HAVE RIGHTS THAT I’M HERE TO PROTECT.

Regardless of whatever legal challenges you may be facing, it’s always important to remember that you have rights. I always try to remind my clients that just because they’ve been charged with a crime doesn’t mean they’re guilty. As your attorney, I’ll work hard to ensure that your rights are never taken advantage of, and I’ll do everything I can to work toward a solution for your unique situation.

Whether you’re facing a DUI or drug possession charge, or you need help clearing your record with an expungement or pardon, I have the knowledge and experience needed to guide you through each phase of the legal process.

When you work with my firm, you’ll get the very best in legal counsel and representation that can be individually tailored to the unique needs of your case. I offer around-the-clock service, meaning that I’ll do my best to be available to you and your needs when you need me most. No matter what, I’ll always be a phone call away.

I take this approach because it’s important to me that you feel confident with your case in my hands. I understand exactly what’s on the line when it comes to facing a criminal conviction, and I’ll do all that I can to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your situation.
