"Jeff really saved my case! He acted both as an attorney and a counselor at the same time... An expert in his field, Jeff really knows his stuff. I shudder to think what might have happened if I went with another attorney. So thank you, Jeff! You're the Man!" – Posted by a client M.H.
Jeff won both of my cases!
Jeff is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable, bright and well respected attorney... He was very supportive of my desire to see through my case to trial despite the fact that it was brought in a challenging court, to say the least. He set realistic expectations along the way so I knew what I was getting myself into but never encouraged me to make a deal, knowing that that didn't sit well with me....I doubt I would have had the same results with another attorney. We won both the DMV and criminal cases.– Posted by a client

With the arrival of warmer weather comes increased boating on area waterways.  While alcohol consumption is often seen and accepted as part of the boating experience,  Pennsylvania legislation sees it otherwise.  Our laws prohibit Boating while under the influence just as it does Driving while under the influence.  Area law enforcement is increasingly on the look-out for boat operators impaired by alcohol and/or drugs.The Courts are seeing ever more charges relating to this crime, “Operation of a vessel Under the Influence of Intoxicating Liquor,” also known as “BUI” or “Boating under the influence.”

While similar to DUI legislation in theory, a BUI is a distinct charge.  It is governed by a different statute. 30 Pa.C.S. § 5502.  Any criminal charge is a serious matter as it always carries the potential for jail time and monetary penalties.  The Veitch Law Firm is ready and able to defend you no matter if the offense occurs on land or water.  Call us today for a free consultation.
