PA DUI Attorney Steven E. Kellis
After graduating from Villanova Law School and Bucknell University, I gained five years of experience with DUI cases while working as a Senior Assistant District Attorney and DUI Prosecutor. This experience allowed me to learn firsthand about the strategies and methods that prosecutors and police officers employ in Pennsylvania DUI cases. As a PA DUI lawyer, I have represented clients in jury trials for more than 20 years, including representing clients in countless DUI trials and evidentiary hearings involved in DUI and DUI-related offenses. I am nationally certified in Field Sobriety Testing and have experience with the breath test machines and blood tests that are routinely used by law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania DUI cases.
As a member and former Pennsylvania State Delegate of the National College for DUI Defense, I also currently serve as a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association. As a Pennsylvania DUI attorney, I have devoted my career over the past two decades to representing clients in DUI and DUI-related cases because I strongly believe that every client deserves a strong defense when he or she is accused of a crime, especially one that can have such far-reaching implication on his or her life.
Pennsylvania DUI lawyer Steven E. Kellis has the experience and knowledge to provide you with the strong and aggressive defense that you will need when facing drunk driving or other serious DUI-related charges. A DUI conviction can permanently change your life; it can adversely affect your family, your ability to drive, your job, your future employment opportunities, and your freedom. The penalties for a DUI in Pennsylvania are potentially severe, particularly when it is not your first offense.
An experienced DUI lawyer in Pennsylvania will take all steps necessary to defend clients against the DUI or DUI-related charges that have been filed by the prosecution. For instance, a skilled DUI defense attorney often will file pretrial motions to suppress evidence. Motions to suppress may be based on mistakes and inaccuracies in the gathering of evidence by officers. As a result, it is very important to effectively cross-examine the officer in order to expose such issues. A motion to suppress the evidence also may include the absence of reasonable suspicion to stop the vehicle or probable cause to arrest an individual for DUI. These motions, when argued successfully, may result in the DUI case being dismissed or the charges substantially reduced.
