    Jan 21 2016 in Case Results, DUI

    A 39-year-old Pittsburgh man, working as a welder, was facing his first Pittsburgh DUI with a high BAC of .17.

Attorney Michael Worgul set out to represent him in a way that would help him avoid jail time and minimize the effect of a license suspension.

As a result of filing this motion and negotiating with the district attorney’s office, our client served 60-days in jail and then received a specialized license allowing him to get to and from work. Our client was able to keep his job as a result.
