Our # 1 Goal? A Case Dismissal.

A DUI conviction is a criminal conviction, like any other crime, and not something you want on your permanent record or to have to explain to potential employers. A loss of a license could mean losing your job, or not being able to attend school. It could ruin your future and make your life more difficult. And it’s depressing. That is why many people choose to fight their DUI charges to try to keep them off their permanent record – especially first-time DUI charges.

To successfully challenge a DUI charge or DWI offense it helps to know and understand your rights. An experienced DUI attorney can help you determine the best approach to fight your DUI charges and navigate the legal system in order to get the best possible outcome.DUI cases are fought and won in court every day and it is possible to get your charges dismissed or significantly reduced. 

Whether you were charged with DUI Drugs/Controlled Substance or DUI Marijuana, were in a DUI Accident, got a First DUI Charge, Second DUI Offense, Third DUI, or face multiple DUI offenses, you still have options to fight your charges and avoid the toughest of penalties, including jail time.

A DUI Arrest is Not A DUI Conviction.

Just because you have been arrested for DUI does not mean that you will also be convicted.

There are many options you have to fight a DUI in court. One option for first-time DUI Offenders is the ARD Program. Acceptance into this program may help you avoid license suspension and other tough penalties, like a permanent criminal record. Another alternative is the Pittsburgh DUI Hotel program. For multiple DUI offenses, you may be eligible for the Pittsburgh DUI Court, which focuses on rehabilitation rather than a lengthy prison sentence.

How Can Our Pittsburgh DUI Attorneys Help?

At Ketchel Law, our greatest strength lies in critically analyzing and dissecting the details of a police officer’s report looking for weaknesses, neutralizing the police officer’s testimony, and questioning the testimony of any experts regarding blood or breath testing.

Sometimes the arresting officer does not have reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle or probable cause to justify your arrest. If this is the case, we can work to suppress the evidence and gain a dismissal of the DUI charge.

When a full dismissal is not possible, we strive to negotiate an alternative to jail time (home detention, alternative housing, or work release) or have the charges reduced.

For first-time DUI offenders, we negotiate for placement in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. And, when an alternative resolution is not possible, we represent DUI clients at trial.

Our experience and knowledge, along with our strong persuasive skills, allow us to provide you with the best possible defense.
