DUI / DWI Charges in Pennsylvania
With your livelihood at stake, and the increased penalties for Driving under the Influence (DUI), choose an experienced trial attorney to properly evaluate your case, and explain the possible DUI sentencing implications. The Law Office of Andrew Gay, Jr. will review all police documents with you and prepare your best trial strategy.
In Philadelphia County, you must consider non-trial options, such as Treatment Court for those with prior DUI/DWI convictions. In Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, there are Intermediate Punishment (IP) Programs available to help you avoid many of the penalties associated with a DUI conviction.
Due to recent changes in the DUI law, Pennsylvania has dramatically increased penalties for Driving under the Influence (DUI). A DUI conviction will seriously impact your personal life and employment, including possible jail, fines, license suspensions and the requirement of an interlock device in your car following the restoration of your license. If you have one or more prior convictions for DUI in the previous ten years, the consequences are even more severe.
If you are experiencing a first arrest and no one was injured, we will ensure you have the option of participating in Pennsylvania's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) Program, allowing you to avoid prosecution for your DUI arrest, and have it erased from your record.
