Philadelphia DUI Lawyers
An arrest for DUI or DWI can have a serious impact on your life and ability to work. Under Pennsylvania DUI law, even a first arrest can result in jail time, driver's license suspension and large mandatory fines. You need a criminal lawyer who will fight for you and your rights! At Scarpello & LaTour, our attorneys have years of trial experience in fighting DUI and DWI in court. We have successfully won thousands of pre-trial motions and trials that have resulted in DUI charges against our clients either being dismissed or the cleint being found not guilty. Don't go to court unprepared.
Our aggressive defense team will make sure that your rights were not violated during either your stop, arrest or search of your vehicle after the police have detained you for DUI. Evidence that the police and district attorney may try to use; blood results, breath tests, field sobriety tests, any statements you might have made, will be thrown out as evidence at your trial once we prove to the judge that the police or prosecutor acted illegally.
Don't make the mistake of going to court without someone committed to your side. Contact Scarpello & LaTour today and speak with one of our experienced trial attorneys about your DUI or DWI. A DUI / DWI conviction can have a devastating effect on your life. That's why we offer a free initial consultation to explain your options in simple, easy-to-understand language.
There are many ways to defend a DUI charge:
- The stop can be challenged. In Philadelphia, people get pulled over for a variety of reasons, some of them legitimate, some of them not. If police made an illegal stop in your case, the DWI charge may be dismissed.
- If you made any statements to police at the time of your arrest, we can seek to suppress those statements. One of the first questions the police ask people after pulling them over on suspicion of drunk driving is "Have you been drinking?" You don't have to answer this question.
- Breathalyzer evidence can be challenged in court. A DUI attorney can check the calibration of the breathalyzer machine as well as the timing of when you were given the test to determine if the results are accurate.
- Blood results from your DUI can be challenged. New laws apply that may make any blood draw or results in your DUI inadmissible in court.
Remember, just because you were arrested doesn't mean the State can prove their case
