Being charged with a crime can impact your life in ways that might not be immediately apparent. You likely have no idea what to expect from the criminal justice process. If you have been accused of committing a crime, you probably have various questions, including:
Pennsylvania takes drug offenses seriously. If you have been arrested and charged, it is critical to work with a lawyer experienced with drug offenses who can prepare a serious defense. At my Glenside, Pennsylvania, law firm, I — Michael F. Dunn, Attorney at Law — will use my experience as a lawyer since 1980 to help you achieve the best possible results.
If you have an arrest on your record, it is probably holding you back, preventing you from accomplishing things that are important in your life. You might have difficulty getting the job you want, the home loan you need or into the school of your choice, for example. Having to say "yes" when asked if you were ever arrested hinders you from making the most out of life. When you are arrested, a record of the arrest is kept by the local police, the State Police, the FBI and many other agencies. An expungement can get rid of all of those records.
Are you the parent of a child who has been accused of a crime? While your son or daughter may not truly understand the repercussions of his or her actions, you certainly do. You want to ensure that his or her future remains open to every opportunity, despite his or her present trouble. I understand that every parent simply wants what is best for his or her child, and I can help.
A DUI/DWI arrest can change your life overnight. Punishment can be severe with long-term consequences. If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you hope that your case is dismissed or that you get the lowest possible punishment. I encourage you to seek counsel from a highly skilled attorney. As a DUI defense attorney since 1980, I will provide an aggressive criminal defense to help turn your hopes into reality.
