A 34-year-old Philadelphia man and past client of Fienman Defense was charged with driving under DUI suspension while driving his work vehicle on I-95 with his 7-year-old son one afternoon. In the State of Pennsylvania, this offense comes with a mandatory minimum of 60 days in jail plus a one-year license suspension and a significant fine. The man is the owner of a local carpet cleaning company. Unable to commit to any jail time with a young son at home and a business to run, he contacted Fienman Defense. Philadelphia criminal defense attorney Michael Fienman accepted the responsibility of being his attorney and prepared for trial.

Fienman is all too familiar with the problems that arise from being convicted of this serious charge. After losing at trial before the Philadelphia Municipal Court’s Traffic Division, Fienman knew the judge got it wrong and filed an appeal. On appeal, the lower court’s ruling was vacated and our client was found not guilty.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
