A family member was charged with DUI, a friend recommended ARD for first offense. Do I need a laywer for this?
A family member was recently charged with 75 § 3802 §§ D2* (DUI) and 75 § 3309 §§ 1 because he accidentally took too much of his prescribed medication.

Unfortunately, funds are very limited
Absolutely. Often times having an attorney is a prerequisite to being accepting into the ARD program. If funds are...
