A licensed attorney with the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Adam Rosengard helps clients in the Philadelphia region with a variety of legal matters. One of Adam Rosengard’s areas of expertise is representing individuals who have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
Getting charged with a DUI, or driving under the influence, is a very serious event. The accused individual may be unsure how to proceed or whether or not he or she needs to seek legal representation. Many times, individuals choose to simply plead guilty to the charge, especially if it is a first offense or if the person’s blood alcohol level was particularly high at the time of the incident. However, a lawyer who has a high degree of expertise navigating the system can be of significant assistance and provide important legal advice.
Having good legal counsel is even more important in the case of a repeat DUI offender. Repeat offenses engender stiffer penalties, such as longer jail sentences. An experienced attorney can potentially help the person plea bargain to reduce the severity of the charge or the sentence, or get the charges dismissed altogether.
