DUIs in Pennslyvania: Where to Start?
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) or driving after imbibing (DAI), it is essential that you contact an experienced Pennsylvania DUI attorney to thoroughly go over your case with you. Each case is different, and your defense should be as well!
For many people, their first DUI or DAI offense is their first encounter with the law. I understand how intimidating it can be to face unfamiliar legal issues, especially when you are being charged with a crime. If anything I know, based on my 20+ years in the field, that this is scary, to say the least.
