Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, or ARD, is a fast-track program to rehabilitate first time DUI offenders. When faced with a DUI charge, the first step is to retain a DUI defense attorney who will assist you in learning about your rights and options when it comes to being admitted into the Pennsylvania ARD Program.
If it is determined that you are eligible for ARD, it will allow you to avoid lengthy court cases and have your charges expunged at the completion of the program. The program does include DUI classes, fines and license suspension and your defense lawyer will walk you through all of the details including counseling services and contacts.
Length of license suspension is based on several factors including 1st, 2nd and 3rd offenses, time since last offense, cause of accident resulting in bodily injury, refusing an alcohol evaluation, etc. The Law Firm of Abom and Kutulakis L.L.P. has experienced lawyers who will work for you to be sure that all of your rights and options are discussed and used to your benefit.
