Attorney Dutko has represented people charged with:
Crimiinal charges are serious and require a serious defense. The sooner you hire an expierenced criminal defense attorney, the more likely your rights will be protected and the better chance for a favorable outcome.
Attorney Dutko is one of the few local attorneys that has worked as a police officer. That means you're getting defended by someone that has experience looking for impaired drivers and one that has arrested people for driving under the influence.
Attorney Dutko uses his experience to determine whether the police properly conducted field sobriety tests.
New laws in Pennsylvania make DUI a felony in certain instances. If you are charged with a felony DUI you could face 7 years in jail and a $15, 000 fine.
Every DUI is different and should be discussed with an experienced DUI attorney.
Although Pennsylvania considers driving a privilege, we understand that driving is a necessity. You need to get to work, medical appointments, and the grocery store. These are important things that require a valid driver's license. Attorney Dutko takes every traffic case seriously because of the impact a conviction can have on your ability to drive.
We understand that you need your Commercial Driver's License to support your family. Unfortunately, Pennsylvania holds you to a higher standard than drivers without a CDL. For the most part, violations and penalties are much harsher than those for non-CDL drivers. Attorney Dutko works toward a dismissal of citations, instead of negotiating a deal that can have a negative effect on your license and your career.
Attorney Dutko has successfully represented clients in Summary Appeals, Driver's License Appeals, Direct Appeals, and Post-Conviction Relief. The key thing about appeals is "time." For instance, a defendant can appeal a conviction two ways. First, by what is referred to as a "10-Day Motion," to request a modified sentence, a new trial, or other limited grounds. Second, a direct appeal to the Superior Court within 30 days of sentencing.
If those deadlines are missed, a defendant may still have limited grounds to attack the conviction collaterally through with a PCRA Petition.
If you are considering an appeal, you need to speak with an experienced appellant attorney quickly to determine what type of appeal is needed in your case.
Attorney Dutko has represented defendants in federal criminal matters in the United States District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
