Many people believe that DUIs are open and shut cases. This is far from the truth. In many instances, the police may not have followed proper procedure when conducting the traffic stop or their investigation. Additionally, certain procedures must be done properly when the police are taking breath or blood samples. At Joe Pometto law we will analyze the procedures used by the police to find an angle to fight the case. Performing such an analysis is crucial in DUI’s. A DUI can result in the suspension of your driver’s license, thousands of dollars in fines and even jail time. The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. At Joe Pometto Law, we will use the Fourth Amendment as your shield to defend a DUI charge. GO FOR JOE – Contact your friendly, neighborhood lawyers at Joe Pometto Law for your legal needs.

Personal Injury

Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania are being overrun with law firms from big cities. All kinds of national law firms are advertising to injury clients in our area. Don’t be fooled.
