Protecting You Against DUI Charges

Joseph A. Kochis Co., L.P.A.

Anyone, regardless of age or background, can be charged with DUI. These charges do not make you a bad person. Our experienced criminal defense lawyer will work hard to protect your reputation and your freedom.

We will work to minimize the immediate and long-term consequences of your drunk driving charges. As soon as you are arrested for DUI, your license will be suspended and your car will be impounded. We will guide you through the administrative process to get your driving privileges and car back.

When it comes to the criminal process, we will attack the evidence from every angle possible. Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over? Was the breath test properly utilized? The answers to these questions can make the difference in your case.
