Law Offices of Stephen Lukach III

Please Call : 267-241-5448


Have you been charged with Driving While Intoxicated?  This is a very serious matter and action needs to be taken.  Before pleading guilty and exposing yourself to severe fines and penalties, you should discuss this matter with a knowledgeable attorney.  You’ll want an attorney who knows the law and how best to defend against these allegations.

At the Law Office of Stephen Lukach, we are prepared to fight for you.  The stress and pressure that accompanies a charge of this magnitude can be great and we at the Law Office of Stephen Lukach, take this into consideration in helping our clients.  From the initial arraignment to trial, our clients are top priority.  We make sure you understand the nature of the charges, the potential penalties and all possible defenses you may have.  Throughout the process, clients remain informed at all times about the status of their case and have the ability to contact Mr. Lukach directly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.   

We have defended hundreds of clients in this situation and we take pride in our many successes.  At the Law Office of Stephen Lukach, we attack the case from many angles.  Whether it be a lack of probable cause to initially stop your car, or problems with one of the many Alcotest certificates, we explore all avenues in deciding the best way to protect your rights and interests.

We are NOT a general practice law firm.  The vast majority of the cases we handle are DWI’s (with the remainder being traffic violations and criminal charges that are often connected to the underlying DWI).  If you are in a car accident, you want a personal injury attorney.  But if you’re charged with a DWI, you want an attorney who concentrates and specializes in that area of law.  Furthermore, Mr. Lukach personally appears at all court hearings.  This may seem trivial until you realize that some seasoned attorneys who have extensive credentials send out inexperienced associates to handle these matters.

I have been practicing DWI law for several years and not only am I a member of the National College for DWI/DUI Defense, but I am also a Qualified Practitioner in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and a Certified Alcotest Operator.   This specialized training gives me the ability to detect if the police administered these tests incorrectly.
