Pennsylvania ARD/First-Offense DUI
If your DUI/DWI/DAI arrest was your first, you may qualify for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Discharge (ARD) program. ARD is a program offered in Pennsylvania that is designed to keep first-time offenders out of the criminal justice system if possible.
Upon completion of a Pennsylvania ARD, your case will be completely resolved. Driver's license suspension, if any, is kept to a minimum. You will have no criminal record.
In sum, Pennsylvania offers you the chance for a speedy resolution to your drunk driving arrest, which you are well advised to accept in good faith. An experienced attorney can guide you through the Pennsylvania ARD process with as little disruption to your life as possible.
Stay out of jail. Protect your clean record. Retain your driving privileges. Contact the Ciccarelli Lawyers to schedule a free initial consultation after a first-time DUI arrest.
Completing the ARD after a first-time DUI arrest is the best way to put the problem behind you and go on with your life as freely as before. In many cases, an ARD can reduce a person's license suspension from one year to no or a reduced suspension. Unlike a guilty plea or conviction, a ARD is not considered a conviction and a Ciccarelli Lawyers client who has successfully completed ARD is eligible to apply for an expungement of their criminal record.
For many people, a driver's license suspension, while not as serious as jail time, is the worst outcome in a DUI case. Without being able to drive to work as usual, some people lose their jobs and even their homes as a result of one drunk driving arrest. Marriages may be strained and one's good name can be tarnished forever.
