It’s of vital importance that you follow the steps above. Sean Logue, your Pittsburgh DUI criminal defense attorney, will need it to help craft your defense. The more information he has, the better the outcome he can help you achieve. The police may have made mistakes in performing field sobriety tests, or the breathalyzer machine may have been calibrated or operated improperly, but the only way your attorney can make this work for you is if he has all the facts.

Remember that the Pittsburgh DUI attorney that you hire will need to know all the facts of your case. Don’t hesitate to trust and confide in him, so he can work his hardest for you. Tell him everything; even the smallest details can make a difference. Your Pittsburgh DUI lawyer will be able to explain your charges to you in detail and advise you about your options. He will stand beside you as you navigate the criminal justice system.
An arrest for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol does not mean an automatic conviction. There are defenses available to you, and if this is your first DUI, there is a diversion program you can go through. The Advanced Rehabilitative Disposition program, otherwise known as ARD, is designed to educate first-time DUI offenders and prevent future charges. Upon completion of the program, charges against an offender are dropped, and driving privileges are reinstated.
And, if this is not your first DUI, an experienced criminal defense attorney can still get your charges reduced or dismissed, depending on the circumstances surrounding your case.
