Schiller & Pittenger, P.C. has fought in DUI charges in Warren for over three decades. Our attorneys have the skill and experience needed to protect you from punishment associated with drinking and driving charges.
Punishment for DUI can include any of the following:
A driver can be charged for drinking and driving if they have been found driving a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicants. You can be charged with DUI in one of two ways.
First, you are considered to have been driving under the influence “per se” if a breath test demonstrates that your blood alcohol content level is above 0.08%. Second, you can face a DUI charge if a police officer determines that you have been driving under the influence, based on observations. There is an important distinction between the two charges that can determine the severity of punishment for a conviction.
Many of the harsh penalties associated with drunk driving can be minimized or even completely avoided with the help of proper legal representation. If we can demonstrate that your rights were violated during an arrest, we may be able to reduce or even dismiss your charges. Our lawyers can leverage our intimate understanding of the current DUI laws to provide you with an aggressive and effective defense.
