We Can Help With Your DUI Charges
When you have been charged with a DUI, you need to take immediate action. The police and prosecutors are not there to help you; they want to convict you. You need a knowledgeable guide to deal with the criminal justice system.
Our attorney at the Law Office of Stephen W. Grosh is an experienced trial lawyer who spends a great deal of time defending clients in the courts. We know you want to resolve the DUI charges as quickly and as efficiently as possible. We work to minimize the charges and the risk they pose to you, your job and your future.
You Need A Strong Defense
DUI charges in Pennsylvania are serious. You can lose your right to drive and be assessed large fines and jail time. Prosecutors are strict in their enforcement and rarely lenient in the proposed pleas.
But the police do make mistakes and errors by police can lead to evidence being discredited or tossed. Our lawyer investigates each case and aggressively builds the strongest available defense. We are always ready to take a case to court, as that often reveals the weak arguments or evidence of the prosecution.
Drunk Driving Penalties Are Severe
Penalties for a DUI in Pennsylvania can be severe. It is always important to challenge every case, as the penalties become progressively more severe with each conviction.
If you accept a plea for a first offense, a second DUI could mean up to six months in prison, a $2,500 fine, an alcohol treatment program and an ignition interlock device for one year. You have to pay for the installation and the monthly service fee for these devices.
Facing a third DUI charge, your license could be suspended for a year, the fines increase up to $5,000, and you could face 2 years in prison. Don’t accept the prosecutor’s deal.
Talk to us first, and we can work to minimize the damage a DUI charge and conviction can do for your life. We may be able to help you with Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD), which can keep you out of jail and allow you a faster license reinstatement.
