DUI Penalties

Penalties are compounded when a driver is arrested and convicted multiple times on DUI charges in Pennsylvania. In accordance with Act 24, the new Pennsylvania Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Law, penalties also increase depending on the driver's measured blood alcohol content. See the link below to the DUI chart for details on penalties that you can expect if you have been charged and convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The seriousness of the penalties is enough to convince many drivers charged with driving while intoxicated that they must do whatever it takes to find and retain the best possible defense attorney. Skillful defense strategies may make the difference between a conviction and an acquittal, or between license suspension and an Accelerated Rehabilitative Discharge (ARD).

Skilled DUI Attorneys

As former prosecutors, the attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford can anticipate what the state will be looking for when your case comes up in court. We are prepared to argue zealously on your behalf, defending your rights and freedom.

  • Did the police officer have probable cause to stop you on suspicion of drunk driving in the first place?
  • Did the breath test provide a reliable measurement of your blood alcohol content?
  • Were field sobriety tests properly administered?
  • Is there evidence to support the possibility that your BAC level could not have been accurately assessed due to a medical condition?
