Challenge Your DUI Charges

Advocacy from a Harrisburg DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (also known as "drunk driving" or "driving after imbibing"), you need an attorney who can help you challenge your arrest and your charges. At the law firm of Curcillo Law, LLC, our legal team has more than 90 years of combined legal experience, which includes experience defending clients from driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) charges.

Our lead DUI defense attorney, Joseph A. Curcillo, III, has more than 25 years of experience handling criminal cases. As a former prosecutor, he has an in-depth understanding of how the prosecution and law enforcement will build a case against you. He and the other lawyers on our legal team understand what is at stake in your case and will fight to have your DWI / DUI charges dismissed, or the penalties reduced.

The Importance of Hiring Skilled Defense Counsel

The type of attorney you select to represent you can majorly impact the outcome of your case. It is best to work with a lawyer who has extensive experience in the field of criminal defense, as well as with DUI defense specifically.

A skilled and experienced DUI attorney knows what questions to ask to challenge the case against you, including:

  • Why were you stopped? A police officer must have a good reason to pull you over, such as erratic driving, a broken taillight or other traffic violation. If the officer did not observe you driving or did not have a sufficient reason to pull you over, then it may have been an illegal stop.
  • Were field sobriety tests properly performed? Police officers must follow very specific procedures when using field sobriety tests. If they failed to follow those procedures, then we may be able to challenge your arrest.
  • Was the Breathalyzer or blood test accurate? Breath tests and blood tests must be performed according to police procedures and by a trained professional.
  • What was your physical condition? An injury, medical condition, or prescribed medication may have led to your arrest, even if you were not intoxicated. Your age and weight may also be a factor in your ability to perform field sobriety tests.

Miranda Rights in DUI Cases

A police officer does not have to read you your Miranda rights until you have been taken into custody and are subject to custodial interrogation. This means that any admission you make to officers before being placed into custody can be used against you in court, even if you had not yet been read your rights.
