Don’t Overpay for Your Mistake

A first time DUI is already going to be an expensive mistake. Don’t overpay for it by using an attorney who charges too much just because they think you’ll pay it. Attorney Hopkins’ fee for a first time DUI, with no prior criminal record, is a fixed $1,200.00. That’s far less than what other, less experienced, attorneys charge. Why does he charge so much less? Attorney Hopkins believes you’ve been through enough hassle already; there’s no reason you should pay through the nose for a first-time mistake. Read more about how we can keep you out of jail and erase your record here.

You can pay far too much for someone less experienced, or you can have the best and keep more of your hard-earned money.

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 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 Behrend, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Allegheny College, and Mercyhurst College.

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.
