Why You Should Hire a Lawyer to Fight Your DUI Charges

Getting arrested and charged with a driving under the influence charge can be life-changing. Now, you might be wondering what you’re going to do and how court is going to go for you. You might be thinking about attending your court date and just pleading guilty to the charge, but you should know that this probably isn’t your best choice. Instead, you should know that it’s smart to hire a lawyer to fight your DUI charges. These are a few reasons why.

A DUI Can Affect Your Life for Years

Many people don’t realize just how serious a DUI conviction can be. If you’re looking at it like it’s just a bad traffic ticket, you should realize that it’s so much more than that. Getting convicted of a DUI can cause you to lose your driver’s license. Even when you get your license back, you can count on paying much higher insurance premiums. Plus, having a DUI conviction on your record can get in the way of you getting a job or renting an apartment. You may have to pay a lot of money in fees and fines, you could have to serve community service, you might have to be put on probation, and you could even face a loss of freedom.

You Don’t Have to Deal with Court on Your Own

Going to court and feeling as if you are “on the chopping block,” so to speak, can be terrifying and overwhelming. You don’t have to go through this on your own. Instead, you are sure to feel a lot better knowing that you have someone with you who is on your side.

You Might Have a Defense

Skilled attorneys use various defenses to help their clients fight these charges. Every case is different, but you might be surprised by what a good lawyer can do for you when you go to court.

As you can see, hiring an attorney to help you with your DUI case is probably your best move. If you are looking for legal representation to help you with your case, contact us at Fiore & Barber, LLC at 215-256-0205 today.

Stiff DUI Penalties for Convicted Pennsylvania Offenders

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is determined to ensure that those convicted of driving while impaired will receive a sentence stiff enough to discourage repeat offenses. At Fiore & Barber, we are equally determined to ensure that the rights of those accused of this offense are protected, and that their case is vigorously and successfully defended by experienced attorneys.

Penalties vary by blood alcohol content percentage (i.e., BAC%), substance under whose influence the accused was operating a vehicle (e.g., alcohol, controlled substance), number of prior offenses, and age of the accused. Generally speaking, the higher your BAC% and the greater the number of prior convictions, the stiffer the penalties.  Entire blog →
