Protect Your Driving Privileges And Your Clean Record After A DUI Arrest
Driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated (DUI/ DWI) is one of the most frequently charged crimes in Pennsylvania. However, this common charge has serious consequences.
Our team has the knowledge and experience you deserve. As former prosecutors, our attorneys have handled hundreds of DUI charges. To preserve your driving privileges and get a head start on your criminal defense, contact Chieppor & Egner LLC at your earliest convenience. Time is not on your side. You need to act now. We have a limited time to request an administrative hearing to get your driver’s license back if it was suspended after your DUI arrest.
Potential Penalties; Processes Of An Effective Defense
Consequences for being charged and/or convicted for DUI can include fines, costs, license suspension, community service, probation, mandatory drug or alcohol treatment and, in some cases, jail time. An aggressive defense is essential for pursuing the best available outcome in your case.
The prosecution of a DUI in Lancaster is unique. While the charges may begin at a local judge’s office, they will be transferred to the DUI Central Court. The DUI Central Court will determine the path your case takes, and your options will be limited based on the decisions you make there.
If this is your first charge, you may have the unique opportunity to partake in the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program. However, if this is a second or third charge your options may be limited.
The process of addressing a DUI criminal charge can be confusing. We can guide you through the process and help you review and optimize your options.
The Value Of Our Attorneys’ Prosecution Experience
Alex Egner and Jonathan Chieppor have spent years working in the district attorney’s office. As prosecutors, they learned the inside of the court system.
Both Jonathan Chieppor and Alex Egner were trained by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office in conducting standard field sobriety tests (SFSTs). Attorneys Chieppor and Egner are both certified in conducting these tests and have practical knowledge about how police officers are supposed to conduct them. They apply this knowledge to our clients’ defense.
Additionally, attorney Alex Egner served as a military police officer for nearly a decade. He had the very same training that local and state police officers use to determine when someone is under the influence of drugs or alcohol when driving a vehicle.
Both Jonathan and Alex have won numerous DUI trials in Lancaster County courts. We know how to win DUI cases and what to look for in your situation.
