Information on DUI Charges and Penalties in Pennsylvania

Driving under the influence (DUI or DWI) in Pennsylvania is a common crime. Even so, the consequences are very severe and could wreck someone’s life and entire future.

Not having a driver’s license can make life difficult enough as can spending time in jail, but so can a permanent criminal record when it comes time to apply for jobs, schools or loans or even to obtain housing, which often require a background check.

Many people make the mistake of taking their DUI arrests lightly instead of seeking experienced legal representation.

If you’ve been charged with DUI in Pennsylvania, your first step should be to discuss your charges with an experienced and aggressive DUI lawyer. Attorney Wana Saadzoi offers Free Legal Case Evaluations.
