DUI Client Feedback – Daniel Keane
“Dan went above and beyond to help with my DUI defense. With his help and hard work, I was able to avoid certain disaster in my life- Family, Financial, Career… He is a Life Saver and I’m forever grateful.
A few years ago I made a terrible mistake. I left the bar on St. Partick’s day (night) after a full evening of celebration. Rather than walking home, which was my original plan, I got behind the wheel and was subsequently arrested for DWI. There was no mistaking the fact that I was intoxicated. I was taken to the hospital where my blood test revealed that I was in the highest tier for penalty purposes. I was facing Jail time and 12 Months Suspended License.
In an attempt to reduce my penalty and suspension we petitioned for ARD from the prosecutors office. To our dismay, we were rejected due to a prior offense in another state (that had been expunged). I thought my life was over. A 12 month license suspension would have surely ended my career and would have probably ended my marriage as well. Dan could have accepted the answer. He was already paid for his services, and did his job per our agreement. However, because he cared about me and my family, he didn’t give up and found a way to fight…
Through some research and leg work, he discovered that the misdemeanor that prevented me from qualifying for ARD would have been only a Summary Offense in PA- thereby making me eligible for ARD.
We appealed the initial rejection by the prosecutors office, and based upon the information provided they reconsidered their decision and accepted me into the program. My suspension was now 60 days, no jail and the criminal charge would be expunged after completing a probationary period. This was huge!
When I was seeking an attorney to represent me, I was really worried that DUI defense was easy money for the attorney. I thought that I was paying a lot of money for no real representation, as the statutes pretty much define the outcome. However I also knew that I could not go through it alone. I am so glad that I was introduced to Dan. He earned every penny, and I am forever thankful.”
