A drunk driving conviction can lead to many serious consequences. Even on a first offense, you can expect to pay fines, lose your driver's license for a period of time and pay more in auto insurance.

You need someone who understands what is at stake and who will protect your rights at every point in the legal process.

Helping People Seek Positive Resolutions to Criminal Charges

If there is strong evidence against you, your best course of action may be to seek alternative sentencing, home detention, treatment for alcohol or substance abuse, and other mitigating actions. For instance, in Maryland, you may be eligible for Probation Before Judgment (PBJ). Under PBJ, you have to comply with the terms of your probation. If you do this, your conviction will be stricken and you may be able to expunge the public record of the offense. In Pennsylvania, first-time DUI offenders may be eligible for Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD). If you successfully complete ARD, your charges will be dismissed. Regardless of where your charges took place, Mr. Boyce will work to help you obtain the best possible resolution to the charges.
