McMahon & Winters Law Firm is poised to assist their clients in light of recent DUI Court System changes. Significant changes in the Lancaster County Court System for those charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol (DUI) took effect on October 1, 2015 and McMahon & Winters Law Firm is prepared to ensure that defendants receive the assistance they need in navigating the changes.
As of October 1, 2015, DUI cases in Lancaster County will be processed within a new DUI Central Court System that was reportedly needed in order to streamline the court process, save taxpayer funds and allow for more efficient handling of prosecutions, according to those who developed the system. President Judge Dennis E. Reinaker signed the order in August of this year, creating the DUI Central Court that will handle all DUI Court Cases in the County. In the new system, all preliminary hearings for DUI charges will now be held at the Lancaster County Courthouse.
The latest changes bring both new opportunities and new challenges to defendants who are required to appear in DUI Central Court. The professionals at McMahon & Winters Law Firm are dedicated to delivering the expertise clients need in their case. In addition to defending unsupported or false accusations, they can review alternative options such as applying for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program (ARD) or resolving the matter in a manner that potentially avoids incarceration.
McMahon & Winters Law Firm has the experience and knowledge to evaluate each case, working as advocates and negotiators to protect and defend their clients’ rights within the new DUI Court System. It is important that clients understand their case and the new system so that justice can prevail. Michael T. Winters, Partner, McMahon and Winters Law Firm explains, “Uninformed is not the way anyone should deal with a DUI arrest. If you are charged with a DUI, you need to be absolutely positive that you understand the consequences of being charged with a DUI, including the possibility of jail time; alternatives to jail time; driver’s license loss; loss of gun ownership rights; loss of employment; citizenship status; and potential professional licensing consequences.”
