Driving Under The Influence (DUI)

Answers You Need When Facing Pennsylvania DUI Charges

NCDD National College for DUI DefenseIf you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you need an experienced Philadelphia DUI lawyer to protect your rights.

In Pennsylvania, the legal limit is .08, which means that if you are found to be driving with a blood alcohol content over that amount, you can be charged with a DUI. Law enforcement administers field sobriety tests and blood / breath tests to determine whether or not your driving has been impaired.

DUI cases have severe consequences if you’re convicted. Unlike many other types of driving-related offenses, a DUI conviction will go on your permanent criminal record. Depending on the circumstances, you also face substantial fines, potential jail time, and a driver’s license suspension. But the impact of a DUI can go far behind what is court mandated. You may face issues maintaining or obtaining employment or professional licensure.

Being charged with a DUI doesn’t have to affect your future, but it can. The best way to mitigate the penalties you face is to hire a Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer. A lawyer who has experience analyzing chemical and technical evidence, as well as a passion for defending a client’s rights, is essential to avoiding the worst consequences of a DUI.

From a speeding violation that lands you in Municipal Court to a felony criminal trial in front of a judge and jury – Fienman Defense protects your rights by covering cases throughout the Pennsylvania criminal justice system.

The Pennsylvania Court System has a foundation level made up of minor courts, such as Magisterial District Courts that handle small disputes and Philadelphia’s Municipal Court that oversees non-jury criminal cases and traffic cases.

Fienman Defense can often be found in Municipal Court, because your involvement in Philadelphia County’s criminal justice system always begins in Municipal Court with your first court appearance following an arrest.

Our defense attorneys often try cases in the Court of Common Pleas, the next step up in Pennsylvania’s court system. These are the courts that handle jury trials.

We also appear frequently before courts in the next level, Superior Court, which hears appeals in criminal cases.

The Supreme Court is the highest court in the Commonwealth, presided over by seven justices.

Fienman Defense has the experience to represent you before judges and magistrates throughout the Pennsylvania criminal justice system. Wherever we are, we will defend you unrelentingly.
