Driving Under the Influence (DUI)/Traffic Violations

While the Law Offices of Matthew R. Kessler, L.L.C. does not routinely handle criminal matters, Attorney Kessler does represent clients charged with driving under the influence and traffic violations.

If you have been charged with a DUI, you need to obtain legal counsel promptly.  If you fail to do so, you could miss out on qualifying for ARD programs that could be in your best interest.  ARD is short for Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition and is an alternative to trial, conviction, a mandatory jail sentence and a mandatory suspension of your driver’s license for one year.  Based upon your blood alcohol level (BAC) at the time of your arrest, how many times you have been arrested for DUI and other determinative factors, Attorney Kessler will be able to tell you whether you will likely be successful in applying for ARD. 

You should be aware that the District Attorney’s office in each county has their own requirements and conditions for qualifying for its county’s ARD program.  Therefore, cases that may qualify for ARD in one county, may not qualify for a similar ARD program in a bordering county.  For this reason, it is absolutely crucial that you have qualified legal counsel on your side.

If you have been charged with a DUI or another traffic violation, contact Attorney Kessler at 610-385-1090 to set up a consultation.
