Are you looking for a Pittsburgh DUI Lawyer?

The first thing you should do is talk to an experienced and knowledgeable DUI Defense Attorney. You should schedule a call with me now.

When I refer to an “experienced and knowledgeable” DUI Defense Attorney, I mean a lawyer who has actually defended DUI cases at trial in the courtroom. How do you find a lawyer like such? First, you can read about a lawyer’s experience on his or her website under their Case Histories. Do not be misled by online “Paid Advertisements” for DUI lawyers who just market themselves well; they might not have the proper courtroom-tested trial experience. After you’re done reading about the lawyer’s experience, make an appointment to meet with the attorney for a paperwork review, specifically review your “Criminal Complaint” and “Affidavit of Probable Cause”, and to give your side of the story.

In a DUI situation, you can be arrested on the scene and then transported to the Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. However, if you consent to take a breathalyzer test at the Police station or submit to a blood draw at a hospital, you will most likely be released from that location to a family member or friend who can take you home instead of going to jail. Aside from providing identification, avoid talking to the Police about what happened; anything you say to the Police will be used against you at your trial. Also, if you were in an accident, do not tell your automobile insurance company that you were drinking and driving before talking with a Lawyer. Insurance companies make reports, and these reports can be obtained by the Police and District Attorney.

For most cases, this is just the tip of the iceberg. You can learn much more about the legal process that you may be following by reading my DUI Guide that I specifically wrote for those who need a Pittsburgh DUI Lawyer.
