A DUI conviction, even for a first offense, can lead to jail time, fines, license suspension, and a permanent criminal record. A DUI on your record can make it difficult to find affordable auto insurance, pass a background check, or get hired for a job.
The Lower Makefield criminal defense team at McKenzie Law Firm, P.C. has a number of strategies to help you beat your DUI charge. Since the burden of proof rests with the prosecution, we may be able to create enough reasonable doubt to get the charge dropped. Otherwise, we can approach the prosecution and work a deal to plead down to a lesser charge, one carrying significantly lower penalties.
Even if it is your first offense and the amount of the drug in your possession is small, you could go to jail, pay a fine, and have a permanent mark on your record.
If the quantity of drugs you are accused of possessing exceeds a certain threshold, or the arresting officer alleges you were trying to transport drugs across state lines, you may get slapped with an “intent to deliver” charge, even if you were not caught in the act of selling drugs. Such a charge can bump a misdemeanor up to a felony and leave you vulnerable to serious jail time.
We can defend you against charges of selling or possessing:
- Cocaine (powder or crack)
- Prescription drugs
