Drunk Driving Is Aggressively Prosecuted In Pennsylvania
Individuals charged with DUI face potential consequences of jail time, fines, license suspension and escalating insurance rates. In Pennsylvania, the severity of these punishments correlates directly with the blood alcohol level found in a person’s system. That is why it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands variables of each individual case.
At the Law Office of Richard F. Maffett, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we have over 30 years of experience defending clients against drunk driving charges. We have even taken a DUI case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Minimizing The Consequences Our Clients Face After A DUI Charge
We do everything in our power to attempt to minimize the consequences our clients face. Because an individual’s blood alcohol level dictates the severity of the DUI/DWI charges he or she receives, we will challenge field sobriety and blood alcohol tests in an effort to get charges lowered or dropped. The law specifically states how officers are supposed to act and how equipment is to be calibrated, and we will aggressively challenge the results of a test that was improperly administered.
We also utilize first time offender programs, such as ARD, which is a pre-trial diversionary program, when available, to help our clients attempt to minimize any jail time or license suspensions.
