Probable Cause for Your Traffic Stop

For more than 30 years, our DUI defense attorneys have aggressively and skillfully challenged traffic stops. Police officers must have a valid reason to pull you over in the first place before they can arrest you for drunk driving. We do not shy away from cross-examining police officers if they appear to have violated your rights in any way.

Field Sobriety Tests

The Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) is consists of 3 individual tests:

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test
  • Walk-and-turn test
  • One-leg stand test

The purpose of these tests is to help the officer determine if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol while operating your vehicle. While administering these tests he is look for common signs of intoxication such as loss of balance (swaying/hopping), slurred speech and not following the directions of the tests correctly.

Challenging Breathalyzer Results

At Solomon, Berschler, Campbell & Thomas, P.C., we frequently and successfully challenge Breathalyzer test results. The police officers responsible for operating these imperfect machines must meet specific certification requirements before performing Breathalyzer tests.

Proper use of the machine is essential for it to be accurately calibrated and correctly determine your intoxication. If the machine was not adequately maintained or the police officer was not properly trained, we will fight to have your Breathalyzer test results dismissed.

Alternatives to Prison & License Suspension

In Pennsylvania, drunk-driving offenders receive mandatory jail time and license suspensions for DUI convictions. Those consequences only get worse with multiple violations. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight the charges or help you seek a sentence that minimizes the damage to your life.

Our lawyers have a strong background defending clients charged with DUI. We are tough negotiators who help first-time DUI offenders avoid jail time by entering the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program. By doing so, our clients maintain a clean record, potentially save their jobs, and prevent their insurance rates from escalating. We can also reduce jail time and limit license suspension for many clients by negotiating for community service.
