Attorney John W. Gibson defends clients arrested for DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol) and DAI (driving after imbibing) in Pennsylvania. Below we would like to enumerate and elaborate on some of the reasons you should consider hiring a DUI defense attorney to represent you against your DUI or DAI charges, including, foremost, the possibility of winning.
Why Hire a DUI Defense Attorney?
There are several reasons to retain a DUI defense attorney if you are arrested for drunk driving, including if you are a minor arrested for DUI or a CDL holder arrested for DUI. Those reasons include the following:
Understanding the Consequences; the Possibility of Winning
The consequences of a DUI conviction can include going to jail, high fines, suspended driver’s license, high insurance rates, and a criminal record.
Because the consequences can be dire, and vary depending on your particular circumstances, an experienced DUI lawyer can help you understand the laws and potential consequences as they apply to you. Experienced representation can also ensure that all the factors surrounding your arrest are fully investigated, such as the possibility that the police lacked probable cause when detaining you at the initial stop.
Experience With DUI Charges
An experienced DUI attorney understands the importance of your BAC at the time of a DUI arrest, and can properly challenge these tests, which can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
Mr. Gibson has over 25 years’ experience aggressively defending clients charged with DUI. He knows how to properly analyze your case and determine when a plea or a trial is in your best interest.
In addition, our experience becomes more important if you are a repeat offender or if an accident occurred, because the consequences can be even more severe. We can assist you in your quest to limit your damages or penalties, including avoidance of substantial jail time.
