Even criminal charges that seem minor can have a lasting impact on your personal and professional life.

DUI charges in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania has three levels of charges for driving under the influence (DUI), all based on your blood alcohol content (BAC) during or after your arrest:
- General impairment — .08 percent
- High BAC — .10 percent
- Highest BAC — .16 percent and above
If you refused to submit to chemical testing, you may be subject to the highest BAC penalties, which can include loss of your driver’s license for a year, a $5000 fine and six months in jail. Our DUI lawyer, Eleanor M. Breslin, aggressively challenges the field testing procedures used to justify your arrest if you did not submit to chemical testing. She also questions the accuracy of chemical tests such as the Breathalyzer, urine tests and blood tests, and the legality of police actions.
