Assistance With Diversionary Programs
In some drug or DUI cases, you may be eligible to enter into a diversionary program. These programs, such as ARD and PWV, are designed for first-time offenders who have exercised poor judgement or who may have a chemical dependence. Acceptance into these programs may allow you to remain on probation rather than face jail time.
We have worked with many clients who qualify for diversionary programs. We will help you explore your options and reach the best possible outcome for your case.
