Have you been charged with a crime? Arrested for drunk driving or a traffic offense? Everybody makes mistakes...you want an experienced DUI and traffic lawyer to help you put your mistake behind you. You want an attorney who knows the law and the process, one who has successfully helped others in these types of cases.
At the Law Office of Scott N. Pletcher, my practice is dedicated to representing individuals that have been charged with drunk driving, all types of traffic violations, and all types of alcohol-related offenses. I understand that a criminal proceeding can involve uncertainty and result in high levels of anxiety and stress. I take the time to listen carefully to your concerns and explain your options to you, so that you can make informed decisions.
How I Help
I protect the rights of people charged with felonies, misdemeanors or summary offenses, including:
- Driving under the influence (DUI) — I represent first-time drunk driving defendants as well as repeat offenders. I will handle the administrative proceeding, which concerns your driving privileges, as well as the criminal proceeding that will determine what legal penalties you may face. When appropriate, I will seek an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD), so that charges will be dismissed and your record expunged if you meet certain conditions set by the court.
- Alcohol-related offenses — I defend adults and minors charged with summary offenses such as underage drinking, public intoxication or drunkenness, disorderly conduct, harassment, and providing alcohol to minors.
- Traffic violations — I represent individuals and commercial drivers charged with moving violations, including speeding, careless or reckless driving, operating a vehicle without insurance or a driver's license, and failing to obey traffic signs.
- Marijuana/Paraphernalia — My firm handles a huge amount of charges stemming from marijuana offenses, drug possession, paraphernalia, controlled substance and related crimes. From university students to business professionals, we are able to offer help. Our reasonable fees include expunging this charge from your criminal record when applicable.
