Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney Defends Your Rights

Employing an aggressive defense is crucial in criminal cases

It can be terrifying to experience the cold reality of criminal charges. The prospect of prison time is bound to raise fears about your freedom and family. And there is your reputation in the community to consider as well. At the Law Offices of Ryan L. Hyde in Exton, I provide a tenacious defense for people throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania facing criminal charges. An experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney, I am your staunch advocate, working to protect your rights and guide you through every step of your case.

Seasoned lawyer provides guidance for DUI/DWI charges

To avoid being charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), drivers need to tread carefully. Whether you’re under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication or controlled substances, DUI/DWI charges can apply. And with penalties that often include mandatory incarceration and driver’s license suspension, a DUI/DWI conviction can have a devastating impact on your life and family.

If you’re charged with DUI or DWI, a good defense attorney will need the answers to three important questions:

  • Why did the police stop you? If police officers did not have a justifiable reason for pulling you over, I may be able to challenge probable cause. I will examine the traffic stop in complete detail, before and after any interaction with the police.
  • Did the police check you for injury or handicap? An injury or handicap can impact performance on a field sobriety test, where you may be asked to recite the alphabet or balance on one foot. If police did not check you for injury or handicap before administering a field test, then I may be able to challenge admissibility.
  • Did the police administer a breathalyzer test? It is common for police officers to administer a test to measure your blood alcohol content (BAC). These devices can malfunction and their results can be flawed, however, so I will investigate all aspects of test administration for errors, including length of time, equipment calibration and sample analysis.

Given the various considerations and harsh penalties for DUIs/DWIs, it is important to mount an aggressive defense. I draw on extensive experience to effectively challenge the case against you and guide you toward an effective resolution. I also offer a free initial consultation so we can discuss your options as soon as possible.

Accomplished counselor helps drivers charged with traffic offenses

Traffic laws may seem straightforward. When you get a ticket, you pay the fine — end of story. But whether you are dealing with speeding tickets, high-speed violations or reckless driving, an adept traffic defense lawyer can help you explore all options. By examining the conditions before and after your traffic stop, I may be able to challenge the validity of your ticket. I can also question the methods and equipment used by police. Whatever the circumstances, know that I will provide a robust defense to protect your driving privileges.

Skilled attorney protects constitutional rights in drug offense cases

One of the most important considerations for drug offenses is possession. Whether the police found illegal drugs on your person, in your car or at your home, I need to examine the circumstances of the search and seizure. If it was conducted improperly, I may be able to challenge admissibility of evidence. Given the harsh penalties and prison sentences for drug crimes, especially for repeat offenders, it is vital to secure counsel from a vigorous criminal defense attorney.
