DUI/DWI

Erie, Pennsylvania DUI/DWI Defense Attorney

Consequences for drunk driving, also known as DWI and DUI are serious. If convicted, you could be confronted with incarceration, license suspension, inability to be insured, fines, and court costs. Whether you are dealing with your first offense, an underage DUI or worse, quickly contacting an experienced attorney will guarantee your rights are protected.

At the Erie, Pennsylvania office of attorney Damon C. Hopkins, we defend juveniles, adults, and college students charged with DWI or DUI. If you or a loved one has been arrested, contact us immediately.

Consequences for DUI and DWI

In Pennsylvania, choosing to drive after having just a couple of drinks can result in a drunk driving charge.  You made a bad decision putting yourself and others at risk which now may have grave consequences including:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Electronic monitoring
  • License suspension
  • Insurance increases or non-insurability
  • Court costs and fines
  • Driving school requirements

Just because you made a bad mistake doesn't mean it has to ruin your life. Attorney Hopkins is a fighter and a fixer with a track record of success. He will fight for your rights, seeking the best possible options available in your case. He will work with you to reduce the impact your mistake will have on your life and the lives of those around you.

College Students and Minors

Unfortunately, Young people often find themselves in situations involving drugs and alcohol. The opportunity to make poor choices, such as underage drinking or driving under the influence, is regularly present. Consequences of conviction often mirror those given to adults. Our firm has a history of working with families to decrease the impact today's choices may have on tomorrow's future. We will represent students, not only in criminal cases, but at school administrative hearings as well.  We have represented many students at local colleges in Erie and surrounding areas like Gannon University, Penn State Berhend, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Allegheny College, and Mercyhurst College.
