The criminal offense of DWI comes with severe penalties even when no accident occurs. But when a crash results in the death of another person, the more serious felony offense of vehicular manslaughter can be charged. If you are charged with vehicular manslaughter, you need an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney.

In many of these cases, we are fighting to exclude the results of a blood, breath, or urine test. Our defense attorneys use the top experts and accident reconstructionists to examine the evidence and offer testimony at pre-trial hearings or trial.
If you are suspected of vehicular manslaughter in Erie, Pennsylvania or Erie County, then call our experienced criminal defense attorneys to discuss the case.

Eric was great. Very professional and very knowledgeable of the law. Attorney Hackwelder and his partner were able to resolve my particular case quickly and to my benefit. Good job!

Stephen is a very knowledgeable lawyer! I got a DUI with a BAC of 2.16 and walked away with only 6 months probation and didn't lose my license! I can't thank this man enough! Thank you Stephen for all the hard work you put into my case!
Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI. So when I was facing legal problems again in 2015 for getting 3 DUI's in a 5 month period due to an addiction to alcohol I knew I needed him to represent me again. Mr. Sebald truly cares about his clients. I met with him we discussed my case and what I was facing. He guided me on what I should do. He doesn't sugar coat things. Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do...

I received a speeding ticket while traveling through Erie, PA. Steve and his expert team took care of everything while I was 600 miles away in North Carolina. He greatly reduced my conviction and fines. Valerie on his team took the time to hand-hold me through the process. I truly appreciate all that Steve and his team did to resolve this positively for me.
I would highly recommend Attorney Hackwelder. My case was different than most but he went out of his way to do his research to make sure things went my way. He won the case for me and if I ever need another attorney I will call him again.
