When you've been arrested for a DUI in Northwestern Pennsylvania and you don't think it's fair, you need a lawyer who can protect your rights...make sure you're treated fairly...and who knows how to get results. You've just found that lawyer.
I understand that you're probably feeling confused, angry, or somewhat fearful about what's happened to you. The process of being arrested, taken to jail, fingerprinted, and photographed was probably very dehumanizing to you. I sincerely sympathize with that.
To be honest with you--you're faced with a charge which can have serious outcomes. I don't want to scare you, but let me give you a glimpse of what could happen. If your case goes the wrong way you could lose your license ... your insurance could go up or be cancelled ... you could even go to jail.
Plus it doesn't end there. A conviction is something that could haunt you for many years to come, even hurting you when you apply for a job.
I know you're fearful about what might happen to you, but I'd like you to know that there's a good chance I can help. Did you know that there are many challenges that can be made to the charges you are facing? I'll raise the applicable challenges for you so your case is as strong as possible.
My goal is to provide you with a solid defense, to keep your record clean, and to prevent you from losing your freedom and your license to drive. You see . . . my practice is based on the theory that you may have been arrested when you shouldn't have been.
At the very least, I'll make sure that you're being treated fairly.
The Prosecutor handles these types of cases all day. He knows--and is willing to use against you--all of the fine legal points that are available to him.
The law says that he only needs to prove that after drinking you were impaired while driving or that your blood alcohol exceeded a certain limit. That sounds pretty clearcut, but it's not quite as simple as that.
You see, if challenged, the prosecutor also has to show that the arresting officer made the arrest properly, that you were properly advised of your rights, that the equipment he used to test you was working accurately, and even that the person operating that equipment was certified to operate it. If he gets information which may prove you innocent, an attorney can force him to give you that information also.
That's where I come in. I know how and when to make the proper motions which force the Prosecutor to prove that all the steps used in your arrest were done properly. If they weren't, then his case is weakened.
I can't promise you that I'll be successful because each case is unique. Maybe the judge assigned to your case is more lenient on drunk driving cases, or maybe he is harsher on them. Maybe there are some things distinctive to your case which are important. However, all things being equal, I think you'll find that I am well-skilled and that I fiercely protect your rights.
When you retain me you'll get legal help from an attorney who knows how to guide your case through the complexities of the legal system because I've done it numerous times. You'll be certain you are being treated fairly by the judicial system because I'll insist:
I talk to the Prosecutor beforehand to get him to produce his proof and let him know that I will be contesting in court all these points I mentioned. When his case is challenged, he has to take a lot of time producing this material and witnesses.
As you can see, what looks simple gets pretty complex. As your attorney I will look into all of these things for you so that you will have the best possible case.
Actually, there is more, but I don't have space in this message to tell you all of it.
You're probably like most people arrested for a DUI. You don't really know the right thing to do about it, and you don't know whether or not you can win if you contest your arrest.
For both of these reasons, I'd like to buy you a free consultation to give you the additional information I just mentioned and to review your case.
If you would like to meet with me, I will be happy to set up an appointment with you. That way you'll be able to learn all you need to know about your situation. This meeting -- which would normally cost $150 -- is free to you and there is no further obligation at all.
To arrange for your free consultation, you can call and leave a message 24 hours a day. Someone from my office will get back to you as soon as possible, if we are not immediately available.
When we talk, I will analyze the facts of your case, give you my opinion about it, and discuss my approach to it. I'll explain how we'll protect your legal rights, what your options are, and how the whole judicial process works, so you'll know exactly what happens.
Plus, you'll learn how I will guide you through the court system and how I'll champion your rights, using all my ingenuity and the options in the legal system to defend and protect you.
For example, I'll review the Complaint against you . . . the steps which were used to conduct the chemical and roadside tests against you to determine if they are valid . . . and I'll show you how the police officer's testimony can be discredited.
I will also tell you about my fees. Anything you tell me during this and all other meetings will be confidential, whether or not you retain me.
In summary, with my help you'll get:
So, if you want an attorney you can talk to, who understands what you want, who is interested in you and your situation, and who fights to get you results, call me today at 814-455-3839 (Erie, PA), 814-734-6076 (Edinboro, PA) or 814-723-6120 (Warren, PA) for your free consultation.
The first meeting is free, so there is no risk on your part; and you'll be able to get all your questions answered. When we are finished, if you're not convinced that I will be able to protect you to your complete satisfaction, then part as friends and I won't trouble you again . . . and you'll owe me nothing.
In any event, at the end of the consultation you'll be more knowledgeable, you'll know what to expect in the judicial process, and be able to make more informed decisions about your case.
And by the way, your arrest may have an automatic suspension of your driving privileges if you refused to give a blood or breath sample. You have a very limited time to challenge this. As a courtesy to you, I will tell you what you must do about this, at no charge, just for meeting with me.
Please remember, the charges against you are serious and can carry severe consequences which could be damaging to your present and your future. You can discover for yourself how I can help save your license and freedom by calling me at 814-455-3839 (Erie, PA), 814-734-6076 (Edinboro, PA) or 814-723-6120 (Warren, PA) for your free consultation.
