Philadelphia Criminal Lawyer Gets Client ARD

Last week attorney Mark Copoulos successfully obtained ARD for an ineligible client.  The client was deemed ineligible while represented by the defender.  Client, N.S., came into the Law Office of Mark D. Copoulos with a serious problem.  He was arrested for DUI and wanted to take advantage of a rehabilitative program.  Unfortunately, he was ineligible for ARD (a program offered to first time DUI offenders) because he had a prior criminal conviction from fourteen years ago.  Attorney Copoulos contacted the Office of the District Attorney.  He obtained references, job information, school history, and other documents from the defendant.  These documents helped convince the Philadelphia District Attorney that N.S. was a safe bet for ARD.  N.S. was admitted into the program and will be eligible for an expungement of his criminal record.

If you or someone you love has been arrested for DUI, contact the Law Office of Mark D. Copoulos.  We will work tirelessly to ensure that every possible avenue is explored.  Like N.S. this may mean re-examining situations where you have been deemed ineligible for a rehabilitative program based on a prior conviction.  Call now for a free consultation.  Our office can be reached twenty four hours per day at 267-535-9776.
