A DUI is a serious offense that can have long-term effects on a person’s life. Once an individual is convicted of operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, his/her license can be revoked, which means the individual may not be able to continue attending school or going to work. This legal offense also remains on a person’s record and can stop him/her from future professional opportunities. Attorney Joseph Bergh is here to help potential clients in the Syracuse area overcome their DUI cases so they can take the necessary steps to get their lives back and rectify their mistake.
Bergh will look at all the details of the incident to build a strong case for the defendant. He also researchers the client’s past to see if he/she has been charged with a DUI in the past (first-time offenders often have better outcomes). If a client is part of a professional association, has a high-profile job, or is pursuing a degree at the time of the offense. Bergh will take this into account when presenting the case to convince the judge that the sentence be appropriate and not overly harsh.
In addition to assisting clients with DUI charges, Bergh also takes on gun and drug possession cases, burglary, violent felony, and assault cases. At first glance, these charges seem harsh and unsettling. However, Bergh takes special care to assess all details of the case to ensure clients have professional and fair legal representation. Every situation is different, and the clients have a variety of motives for their actions. Bergh will bring these points to the court in a professional attempt to make the ruling as objective as possible.
