Examining All of the Issues in Detail
Although Pennsylvania DUI/DWI laws seem deceptively simple, navigating through its defenses is difficult. Mandatory minimum sentences and license suspension periods are based on the defendant’s measured blood alcohol content (BAC), the presence of illegal drugs in his or her system, and any prior convictions. Because it all seems straightforward, some attorneys advertise for DUI cases, even though their legal focus is not criminal defense.
There is many factors that go into a DUI/DWI case than most people realize. In fact, not all tests are dependable, not all roadblocks are legal and not all evidence is what it seems to be. Recently, courts have even challenged the validity of results from breath tests used by the State Police. You need an attorney that knows the changes and how it may affect your rights.
The criminal defense attorneys at our firm are familiar with the standardized field sobriety tests developed by the National Highway Safety Administration. We can identify which of these are valid and whether the test was administered properly by the police who arrested you. We are also familiar with the proper administration of breathalyzer tests.
