Defense Against DUI Charges
The laws in Pennsylvania are extremely strict these days. However, it does not mean that you do not have legal options. As with other criminal charges, those accused of a DUI are innocent until proven guilty and deserve the best legal defense possible to ensure that your rights are protected.
At Mastri Law LLC, we have represented many drivers accused of DUI in the various courts in the 19 counties that surround the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. Even if you tested above the legal blood alcohol level (BAC), we can still change the results in a court of law. Our experience in the courtroom and legal knowledge in this area is often effective in challenging the charges.
How We Can Help You
As a law firm that has defended and prosecuted DUI charges, we know how these cases work. We can examine the details to determine if there are crucial factors that will reduce or dismiss charges. This line of questioning includes:
- Did law enforcement officers have a clear indication that you were violating motor vehicle laws before pulling you over?
- Each sobriety test has its own protocols. Was your test administered properly and in the appropriate timeframe to reflect your BAC when you were driving?
- Did the officer properly operate and maintain the equipment so it gives an accurate reading?
If You Do Get Pulled Over
It is important to talk to an attorney if you are pulled over. We cannot guarantee that we will get charges dismissed or reduced, but mounting an aggressive legal defense is a wise course of action with any DUI charge. It can be the difference between having your life changed for the worse or managing a difficult legal situation and moving on with your life.
