I need to consult with an attorneys that practices in Philadelphia concerning criminal matters

Asked over 1 year ago - Philadelphia, PA

I need a super attorney that has been successful in defending a client concerning DUI and causation. I understand causation and culpability concerning causation. DUI is not a strict liability offense. I would prefer to employ a litigator that specializes in rising blood alcohol levels.

Additional information

I apologize for trying to solicit here. I will do just that, use "find a lawyer" Please disregard for I cannot delete post. Or can I?

    Answered . Attorneys, certain magazines notwithstanding, do not have capes nor do they have special powers. You need an experienced DUI attorney. I would recommend Charles Nistico or Steve Kellis but you need to understand ---- success is fact driven and seeking results on past performance is what keeps rcaetracks and casinos in the black.

    BTW extrapolation (rising blood alcohol levels) was eliminated as a defense by the state legislature in 2004 when Pennsylvania amended its DUI statute.

How much do I tell my lawyer?

Start by telling your lawyer what you are charged with and when you are due to appear in court. From that point on I suggest that you let your lawyer ask you questions and you answer those... more
