An arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or a DUI accident is scary. You probably don’t know what to expect. You most likely feel helpless. However, things are not as grim as they seem. Hiring a lawyer experienced in DUI defense to represent you will reduce the stress you feel.

Your lawyer will review all the information about your arrest and/or DUI accident. This information is extremely important to help him successfully defend you, so don’t hold any details back. He will present to you suggested defenses, and help you choose the one that will get you the outcome you desire.

The attorney you hire will guide you through the complex legal processes and explain things to you so that you understand what is happening.

It’s important that you hire an attorney right away, and even more important that the lawyer you hire be trained, knowledgeable, and experienced in DUI law, so that he can get you the best possible outcome. If you wait too long before you decide to hire a lawyer, you may not be able to avoid some of the harshest consequences.

Don’t try to go it alone. Pennsylvania’s DUI laws are complex, and the court system is complicated and confusing. A DUI conviction carries with it some harsh penalties, up to and including large fines and time in prison. Your life is too important to leave to chance. A good DUI attorney will be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed, depending on the circumstances of your case.

Don’t wait to call! The longer you wait to hire a lawyer to represent you, the more difficult it becomes for him to get those charges reduced or dismissed.

There are many possible defenses available to you. Your Pittsburgh DUI defense lawyer knows the laws inside and out, and is willing and able to search case law for precedents that have been set that might help you. Trust him to put his knowledge and training to good use for you.

Your attorney will look at the device or method by which your blood alcohol content was determined to check its accuracy, the procedures followed during the assessment, the training of the administrator of the test, and the calibration and maintenance of any machines or devices used to conduct the test. Any mistakes or lack of training or maintenance can lead to discredited evidence.

The lawyer will also examine any police video that exists of your DUI stop and arrest, to make sure proper procedure was followed, and in some cases that your vehicle was the one the cop needed to pull over. Cops are human just like everyone else, and they make mistakes. Any mistakes on the part of police officers can lead to discredited evidence against you.

Atty. Logue represented me well and took care of my legal issues superbly. He is a no-nonsense, very knowledgeable and well respected lawyer. I was pleased with his services. Would definitely recommend Atty. Logue to others. Anonymous
Mr. Logue is good for one reason, he cares. A client is not a quick buck. He always answers his phone, day or night and he understands the law better than anyone. He always answers my calls for both corporate and personal legal decisions and I have a ton of questions. His rates are reasonable too. Fair and firm. Anonymous
