The 4 secrets that the Prosecution doesn’t want you to know:

  1. The Prosecutor may be bluffing.
  2. The Prosecutor may have problems proving your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level based upon the evidence (or lack of it).
  3. The prosecutor may not have all the witnesses needed to prove your case.
  4. The Prosecutor may have evidence to prove your innocence – Evidence we have the power to demand!

Key Information to know when considering going to trial:

  • How do we approach your DUI case?
    Our law firm has to estimate the strengths and possible weaknesses of the State’s case against you. Then, we also need to fully understand any effects of a conviction. A conviction could include the loss of your driver’s license and time in jail.
  • Can you Plea Bargain?
    This situation is an exercise in cost-benefit analysis. You should discuss all options with your attorney as your situation changes, as your defense may change based on the evidence.
  • When will you be able to drive?
    If you refused a test or your BAC was above the legal limit, you may lose your driver’s license for a very long time. A DUI charge can result in a penalty of no drivers license suspension to a long suspension that could literally last for years. At The Travis Law Firm, we will discuss some strategies to seek either no drivers license suspension or at least the minimum suspension possible under the facts in your case.

The 4 strategies that are critical to your DUI defense:

  1. A thorough investigation of all the facts involved in your situation.
  2. A vigorous cross-examination of any witnesses against you.
  3. Experience with Pennsylvania DUI laws and a sound understanding of those laws.
  4. An Experienced Pennsylvania DUI lawyer to negotiate a lesser sentence and lower your penalties.

Preliminary motions that should be filed that could help your DUI Case get dismissed:

Without filing these motions, your case may not get dismissed when it should. There may be evidence to prove your innocence, evidence to which you are not privy.

  • A Motion For Discovery of Evidence.
  • A Motion to Suppress Evidence on the grounds that you were stopped unconstitutionally.
  • A Motion to Suppress Evidence on the grounds that you were the victim of an unconstitutional search and seizure.
