This is a treatment opportunity, allowing you to serving your sentence outside of jail.

What is Pennsylvania's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program?

The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program is a unique opportunity, and one simple mistake could affect your chances of getting into it. We have a strong background helping clients get into the ARD program and will clearly explain to the district attorney why you would benefit. The program offers many advantages, including:

  • Resolution of your DUI charge through the program is not considered a conviction
  • You avoid jail time by performing community service
  • Your driver's license is suspended for less time than if you were convicted of a DUI
  • You participate in safe driving classes and possibly an alcohol awareness program

If you participate in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program for 12 months, you will be able to complete your probation with no criminal conviction. Our lawyers may also be able to expunge the arrest from your record, so you have a clean slate.
