Why Fight a DUI?

Your best option, should you be charged with Driving Under the Influence in Pittsburgh, is to fight the charges. To be honest, it’s your only option, because you will always, 100% of the time, be found guilty of DUI if you plead guilty to it. You may shrug and think it’s no big deal, but you’d be wrong.

A conviction in Pennsylvania for Driving Under the Influence comes with a long list of punishments, including:

  • Fines that can be anywhere from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars
  • A license suspension of days or years
  • Time in jail, anywhere from days to years
  • Higher insurance rates

That’s not all the pain and suffering you’ll endure, either. Even after you have paid your fines and served your time, you’ll still be punished for your Driving Under the Influence conviction. It will remain on your record, and anyone can look it up, from your nosy neighbor who will spread it around, to a potential employer who will refuse to hire you, to the loan officer at the bank who will refuse to give you a loan. It will always be there, as part of the public record, even if you never break another law.

However, if you fight back, you can win, and avert some or all of these penalties. With the right Pittsburgh DUI attorney, you will have an experienced advocate who is willing to aggressively fight for you.

Just because you have been accused of Driving Under the Influence doesn’t mean you are guilty of it. The prosecutor must prove his or her case against you in court. An attorney at your side can mean the difference between a long jail sentence and big fines or neither.

It’s never a good idea to represent yourself. Pennsylvania’s DUI laws are complicated. Likewise, you shouldn’t just bring in any old lawyer. You need someone with experience and training, who is able to stand up to the court and refute the evidence against you.

You might be thinking that an attorney who specializes in DUI is expensive, but isn’t your freedom worth it? If you have no lawyer, or a poorly trained one, you could walk away with no driver’s license, higher insurance rates, huge fines, and possibly without a job. Can you afford not to fight that DUI charge?
