Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is drug possession a felony?

Drug possession can be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the type and quantity of drugs involved in your case. Your criminal history can also play a role in your sentencing. If you’ve been charged with felony drug possession, our skilled drug lawyers can assess your case and explore potential avenues for reducing your charges.

How to get drug possession charges dropped?

Getting your drug possession charges dropped will require strategic legal intervention. Your drug crime lawyer can challenge the legality of your search or seizure, negotiate a plea bargain with your prosecutors, or recommend rehabilitation as an alternative penalty. Reach out to our experienced criminal defense attorneys to learn about the best course of action for your case. We can also discuss how to get a drug paraphernalia charge dropped or how to get a drug trafficking charge dismissed, if applicable.

Is your license suspended immediately after a DUI?

In Pennsylvania, you typically won’t have your license suspended after your first DUI offense. However, you may lose your license for 12 to 18 months if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level is above .99% or if you’ve been convicted of a DUI in the past. To learn about the potential consequences of your DUI conviction, search for “DUI attorneys near me” and book a consultation. 

What is the punishment for juvenile theft?

When a minor is charged with theft, their penalties are set based on the value of the stolen property, their criminal history, and local laws. Some common penalties include restitution, community service, probation, mandatory counseling, and juvenile detention. To ensure the best outcome for you or your child in Southwestern Pennsylvania, consult with a local juvenile law attorney, like Bumbaugh George.

What is the difference between assault and battery?

Assault and battery sound similar, but they have distinct legal definitions and different consequences. Assault is defined as an intentional threat or act that causes another person to fear imminent bodily harm. It’s classified as a second-degree misdemeanor in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, battery is the intentional use of force against another person with the intent to cause bodily harm. Since battery necessitates physical harm, it’s classified as a first-degree misdemeanor and has more severe penalties.

Is it worth hiring a lawyer for speeding ticket?

If you’ve received a speeding ticket, hiring a lawyer can increase your chances of obtaining a more favorable legal outcome. However, it depends on the severity of your violation and its consequences. If your driving record or insurance rates are at risk, a lawyer may be able to negotiate reduced charges or have your ticket dismissed. At Bumbaugh George, we can assess the circumstances surrounding your speeding ticket and provide more personalized legal advice.

How much do traffic lawyers charge?

The cost of hiring a traffic lawyer depends on the details of your case. Some attorneys work for a flat fee, while others charge hourly rates or contingency fees. If you’re considering hiring a traffic lawyer in Westmoreland County, book a free consultation with Bumbaugh George. During this consultation, we can provide an estimate of the costs associated with your case.
