After being accused of a crime, or have been victim of one, you need a skilled attorney to represent you. At Lichtman & Associates, we excel in the representation of those charged with vehicle crimes like driving under the influence (DUI), traffic violations, speeding tickets, and other summaries and misdemeanors such as domestic violence or assault. Just one drink can lead an accident to be considered a criminal offense, and can greatly disrupt your life, and cost you an incredible amount of money. Unfortunately, DUI cases are some of the most difficult to defend, making it imperative that you have an aggressive lawyer to represent you.
While either under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the police rely on their own observations to determine whether or not to charge you with a crime. Even if using a drug you were prescribed, you can still be charged with DUI and other offenses relating to an accident, if one has occurred. The thresholds for drug levels in your system are very low, making it extremely easy to get a DUI while using drugs. In 2008 alone, there were 459 fatal DUI accidents where the driver was above the minimum limit for a DUI arrest. At Lichtman & Associates, we represent cases of multiple DUI offenses. After your first DUI offense, you may not have to face jail time or lose your license. We have helped many of those accused with DUI avoid jail time or loss of license and hefty penalties. After your second DUI offense in Pennsylvania, you can be penalized with up to five years in jail, an 18 month license suspension, and up to 150 hours of community service. A third DUI offense can be very detrimental to your life. In Pennsylvania, you can face up to 5 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
At Lichtman & Associates, we put forth every effort to protect our clients. The repercussions of a DUI or criminal arrest can be dire. It is imperative that you retain an attorney that can help you from having your reputation tarnished, save you money, and spare you jail time.
