Arrested for Driving Under the Influence in or near Pittsburgh? We can help.
If you have been stopped for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Pittsburgh or elsewhere in western Pennsylvania, you need the right attorney to protect your legal rights. A DUI charge is very serious because a conviction for drunk driving brings with it both criminal and civil penalties (possible Jail time and the possible loss of your operating privileges).
Prior DUI offenses include any DUI convictions in the last 10 years as well as any DUI convictions from outside of Pennsylvania. Prior convictions will increase your possible penalty for every subsequent DUI charge and conviction. Out of state convictions apply if the State's DUI law is substantially similar to Pennsylvania's. Only experienced attorneys, like the ones at Morrow and Artim who know the Pennsylvania DUI statutes, will be able to compare it with other states and challenge the Commonwealth's attempt to punish you more than the law dictates.
Criminal penalties such as jail time are based upon two important factors: 1) your blood alcohol content (BAC) and 2) whether you have any prior DUI convictions. This is not a situation where you want to go in alone. At Morrow and Artim, our goal is to provide you with perfect legal representation, using our experience in handling DUI matters across western Pennsylvania to minimize or eliminate the potential sanctions against you.
Commercial drivers (bus driver, truck driver, delivery person) face an even more serious problem when they are charged with a DUI, loss of a job. A DUI conviction carries with it a license suspension that will bring an extreme hardship to the commercial driver, the inability to perform employee duties, possibly resulting in loss of employment. We want to make sure that this does not happen to you and will do everything in our power to protect your legal interests.
At Morrow & Artim, we offer a no cost, no obligation review of your DUI charges or criminal law matter via a short telephone consult or an email reply. If both you and our firm agree that legal representation is required, an in-office appointment will be scheduled. Individual attention is our main concern. In that regard, we limit our caseload to ensure that we are able to give each client the individual attention that their legal matter deserves.
