-Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Have you been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol? When things are at their worst, they are at their best. In Pennsylvania, the penalties for DUI are so severe you need representation from an experienced attorney able to make the system work for you rather than against you.

Pennsylvania DUI arrests are painful. The embarrassment from the roadside field sobriety tests given to suspected drunk drivers quickly gives way to the terrible reality of handcuffs, a blood test and fear of the consequences that follow a Pennsylvania DUI conviction - the possibility of being sent to jail and losing your Pennsylvania drivers license for over a year. They understand how you feel. More importantly, they know how to cushion or avoid the consequences of a DUI arrest.

Title 35 of the Pennsylvania Statutes covers drug offenses. Many drug charges are felonies that will remain with you the rest of your life. Because of the detrimental effects illegal drugs have on society, Pennsylvania courts are dedicated to punishing individuals charged with drug crimes. Thus, there is a good chance you could be facing jail time. It is extremely important to have the expertise of a seasoned defense attorney to protect your rights to the best of their ability.

-Assault Charges
Assault charges are extremely serious. Police often overcharge citizens with aggravated assault and other charges, they throw in the kitchen sink.

-Sex Crimes
Hopkins and Heltzel have the sufficiency and fortitude to handle all sex related charges.
