DWI / DUI Defense in Pennsylvania

Skilled Harrisburg Criminal Defense Lawyers

DWI/DUI charges can open the doors to chaos for the accused. Much more than a simple traffic violation, a drunk driving conviction can threaten your finances, freedoms, reputation, and future. If you are confronting DWI charges, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights and liberties.

The skilled Harrisburg criminal defense attorneys at Curcillo Law, LLC can offer the assertive and strategic representation you need to challenge DUI allegations. Our firm, which is backed by over 90 years of collective practice experience, provides aggressive legal advocacy to the criminally accused.

DUI Penalty Tiers in Pennsylvania

State law has divided DUI charges into three tiers: general impairment, high rate of impairment, and highest rate of impairment. These levels are determined by the assessed blood alcohol content (BAC) of the defendant. Strict sentencing guidelines are based on what tier you fall into and how many previous offenses you have on your record, if any. Generally, the higher the tier and the more frequent the offense, the stiffer the penalties. Even first offenders can receive damaging penalties.

The DWI/DUI penalties in Pennsylvania include:

  • License suspension for one year
  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Fines as much as $5,000
  • Mandatory highway safety education
  • Court-ordered drug and alcohol treatment

Challenging the Charges

Our team of attorneys includes former prosecutors and a former law professor. We know what judges are looking for when deliberating charges or deciding sentencing. As seasoned legal advocates, we have no qualms in challenging the charges against you or suggesting more lenient sentencing. Curcillo Law, LLC, will not hesitate to employ every method in our strategic arsenal to vigorously defend our clients.

Some of our DWI / DUI defense methods include:

  • Challenging the reasoning behind DUI suspicion
  • Questioning the procedures carried out in field sobriety tests
  • Examining the accuracy of BAC tests
  • Requesting enrollment in Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) programs in lieu of sentencing

Contact Curcillo Law, LLC today!

DWI/DUI arrests trigger simultaneous processes–one in criminal court and the other with the Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You have only 10 days after your arrest to petition for a DMV hearing to protest the suspension of your driver's license.

DUI convictions can threaten your driving privileges, financial stability, and your personal freedom. If you have been charged with a DWI in Pennsylvania, don't delay in obtaining the experienced and aggressive legal representation you need and deserve!
