Talk To A Pennsylvania ARD Expungement Lawyer About Clearing DUI Charges

If you are a first-time DUI offender, you may be eligible for Pennsylvania’s accelerated rehabilitative disposition program (ARD). This program was designed to make the court process more efficient and give people a second chance to have a clean criminal record.

If you have questions regarding the ARD program and ARD expungement of your DUI charges, call 717-985-8595 for free initial consultation. Attorney Patrick F. Lauer, Jr. has represented thousands of clients in Cumberland County and across the state on drunk driving charges, with a solid track record of results.

What Is ARD? Am I Eligible?

The accelerated rehabilitative disposition is an alternative to jail and lengthy license suspension. Essentially you are pleading guilty to the offense in exchange for an opportunity to keep it off your record. ARD is only offered to first offenders. You are not eligible if you have any past convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or a past refusal of a breathalyzer test. You must meet other criteria as well. In some cases, it may be better to fight a first-time DUI because an ARD counts as a first-time conviction if you are ever arrested for impaired driving in the future. Our attorney can determine is you are a candidate for ARD and the best approach to your situation.

What Is ARD Expungment?

After you have completed the ARD program and satisfied all conditions of the court, you can petition to have those DUI arrest records and court records expunged. Those records may still show up on a background check if you do not seek a formal expungement.

You Have 30 Days To Take Advantage Of The ARD Program

The ARD expungement program in Pennsylvania offers a great opportunity for individuals to have their DUI/DWI charge completely wiped from their record criminal record. Timing is very critical since individuals only have 30 days to file for admittance.
