Not Guilty Verdict in Berks County Traffic Case

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Yesterday I represented a client in a Berks County, PA Distict Court who had been charged with a summary citation of Driving on Roadways Laned for Traffic. He had been cited after an accident invovling to other vehicles occurred on Interstate 78. My client was adamant that he did not cause this accident and he wanted to fight the citation. My client is a CDL licensee in Pennsylvania and is currently employed as a Trucker by a local trucking business. He has a clean driving history and wanted to keep it that way.

Fortunately, he was found not guilty following a summary trial before the Magisterial District Judge.

Client Avoids 60 day Mandatory Jail Sentence in Suspended License Case

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Today I represented a client charged with violating section 1543(b) of the PA Vehicle Code – Driving Under a Suspended License – DUI Related. The sentence is strict for a conviction for such an offense: 60 days mandatory in jail, and the possibility of up to 90 days at the discretion of the Judge. Additionally, a Driving Under Suspended License (DUS) citation carries a 1 year License Suspension from PENNDOT.

In this particular case I was able to negotiate a reduction in the charge down to the lesser offense of a 1543(a) – non-DUI related. This allowed my client to avoid at least 60 days in Berks County Prison.

Appealing Traffic Citations Saves Points on Drivers’ Licenses

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Client Avoids Automatic Departmental Hearing in Speeding Case

Friday, February 18th, 2011

This week I represented a man charged with violating the PA Vehicle Code at Section 3362(c)(1)(i) – Excessive Speed in a 65 mph zone. In this case my client was charged with topping out at 112 mph, placing his violation in the highest tier or more than 31 mph over under Section 1535. This is significant since such a violation triggers a mandatory departmental hearing with PENNDOT. Additionally, such a violation would result in 5 points on his license.
In this particular case I was able to negotiate with the state trooper who had stopped my client on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. I had previously advised my client to participate in a voluntary safe driving program to show initiative to the court. This participation, coupled with my client’s work history and lack of significant driving record helped my negotiation to be a successful one. In the end we pled to an amended citation of 15 mph over and as a result my client only suffered 3 points on his license. No departmental hearing, no suspension.
