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 may even have to spend time in jail. Given the potential consequences, you need someone on your side who understands the legal issues involved in drunk driving charges and can give you insight into the criminal justice system. You need someone who understands what is at stake and who will protect your rights at every point in the legal process.
In every drunk driving case, one of the first things to determine is whether the police had probable cause or reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle. If the police did not have probable cause to stop your car, any evidence they obtained against you will not be admissible in court. Technical aspects of a DUI charge need to be investigated as well, such as the breathalyzer test. In every case, you can be certain that Mr. Boyce will explore every possible defense to the charges.

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.
