Pennsylvania takes drunk driving seriously. A DUI conviction can lead to jail time, fines, a driving license suspension, and a criminal record that stays with you forever.
A DUI conviction can also affect your ability to find a job — particularly if the job involves driving.
The McKenzie Law Firm has a number of tools to help you beat your DUI charge. Depending on the circumstances, we may decide to plead a lesser offense, such as reckless driving, or we may enter a not-guilty plea. A Bristol DUI lawyer will then present evidence that creates reasonable doubt as to your guilt.
Drug Crimes Convictions
Pennsylvania also takes drug crimes, such as the sale and possession of illicit substances, seriously. Marijuana is not legal in Pennsylvania as of 2018, and if you get caught with even a small amount, you could face severe penalties. The consequences are even worse for possessing or selling other illicit drugs.
More importantly, Pennsylvania has “intent to deliver” laws. The state may consider you in the same league as drug dealers if you try to transport drugs, even for personal use, across state lines.
Our legal team can help, regardless of the drug charges you are facing. Call us if you are accused of possessing or selling any of the following:
- Prescription drugs
