Always Looking For The Best Outcomes For Clients
Pennsylvania’s criminal laws are very stringent. But in many cases, there are also important alternatives available to traditional prosecution and incarceration. The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program is a good example.
Often utilized by individuals with a first-offense DUI, an ARD is a pre-trial diversion program that can help participants avoid jail time and maintain a clean criminal record. Terms of participation include paying any fines and costs, completing community service and substance abuse treatment (or other requirements), and submitting to a period of supervision.
The ARD program is just one of many examples of prosecution/sentencing alternatives that our lawyers can pursue on your behalf. Our goal is to help you resolve or mitigate your criminal charges as favorably as possible.
Trust Your Case To Seasoned Trial Lawyers
Many criminal defense attorneys primarily seek plea deals for their clients. A plea deal is sometimes the best option, but it shouldn’t be the default choice. We are trial lawyers with significant courtroom experience. If taking your case to trial is in your best interests, we will not hesitate to do so.
