The cost of hiring our firm varies. Factors in determining the cost of representation include the circumstances of your arrest and your case, whether you are eligible and accept ARD, how many prior DUIs you have and the County of your arrest.
You will typically receive notice of your suspension after your final hearing. If you are pleading guilty, you may be able to turn in your license at your guilty plea.
It depends. If you complete the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, you may be able to have the entire incident expunged or removed from your criminal record. A DUI conviction will stay on your record permanently.
Typically, no. The police officer initiating the stop will choose the chemical test and unless you have a medical condition, you should participate in whatever chemical test is asked of you. If you are uncooperative or you do not have a medical condition, you may face penalties for refusing to participate in a test at all.
No. The laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania do not allow for representation at this stage. Insisting on an attorney may result in a refusal.
Typically a Preliminary Hearing will be scheduled first. This is the most important hearing you will have prior to trial.
