DUI Accident Attorneys in Harrisburg

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Their Actions

Suffering a serious injury or losing a loved one in a DUI accident can be devastating. Our attorneys provide results-oriented legal services to individuals and families who have been victimized in drunk driving accidents. At Shaffer & Engle, we believe that drunk drivers should be held accountable for the injuries they cause. We are aggressive in advocacy and compassionate in service to represent you and your family after a DUI accident.

We understand the devastation caused by a drunk driving accident. Our attorneys are relentless in pursuing all parties responsible for any injury or death.

Investigating a Drunk Driving Accident

After a drunk driving accident, it is critical to begin an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all necessary evidence for the case. We will contact witnesses, review police and medical records, work with accident reconstructionists, and take pictures of the accident scene. Our firm will diligently collect and preserve evidence to prepare for your case and help maximize compensation after an accident.

Our DUI accident lawyers in Harrisburg are experienced in cases involving:

  • Wrongful death
  • Trucking accidents
  • Dram-shop liability
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Scarring and amputation
  • Paralysis and permanent disability

What Is Dram-Shop Liability?

Our firm will identify every party responsible for the accident and injuries. Under Pennsylvania dram-shop laws, you may be able to pursue a case or claim against a negligent bartender, bar, liquor store, or restaurant responsible for negligently over-serving the drunk driver involved in your accident.

A DUI accident involving dram shop laws can be complex. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to effectively handle your case in settlement negotiations or in litigation. We are experienced in dram-shop cases involving over-serving (serving patrons who are already intoxicated) and serving to minors.

Attorney Jeff Engle Understands DUI Law

One of our primary attorneys, Jeff Engle, is a former prosecutor who thoroughly understands DUI law. While working for the prosecution, he helped the state of Pennsylvania put a number of drunk drivers behind bars. As a personal injury attorney, he continues to hold drunk drivers accountable by representing victims in DUI accident cases.

What Our
Clients Have to Say

  • You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story

    “Dear Miss Elisabeth, I can't thank you enough for giving me my life back! Everyone told me I should just plead guilty but I knew I didn't do what they said I did. You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story and explain why I signed a confession when I never committed that crime. I was very scared during the trial but I felt good knowing you believed in me. I am a free man today because of you. God bless you.”

    S.G.

  • He has a great personality and makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

    “Mr. Engle took our case and worked diligently from the time we hired his firm until our case was resolved. In addition he kept us well informed throughout the process with emails, letters, and phone conversations. I have worked with a number of law firms in the past 10 plus years and Attorney Engle is one of the best. He does not make you feel as if you are a burden to him when you ask questions. He has a great personality and makes you feel welcome and comfortable. He makes no promises due to the fact he is not a fortune teller but he will do everything possible to have a positive outcome for your case. I recommend Attorney Engle and his Law Firm and hold nothing but positive praise for him and his team.”

  • He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator.

    “I came to Shaffer & Engle Law Offices searching for hope after I entered a plea in my criminal case. I had a false allegation filed against me for a sexual offense that I did not commit. I was involved with another lawyer for 2 ½ years, when it came down to day before court we felt he was not prepared to represent me. I either took the plea of "Nolo Contendere" or went to jail the day of the trial. I felt trapped. I had this allegation against me and I was innocent. I met with the Attorney Engle. He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator. He offered to represent me and quickly moved to withdraw my guilty plea. That was granted by the court and we proceeded to prepare for trial. They uncovered many things that our other lawyer did not bother to investigate. They met with character witnesses after hours to make sure my defense would be solid. Long story short, the DA in my case withdrew the charges. I went from a convicted man to completely being vindicated. Shaffer and Engle Law Offices also were able to assist me in another matter relating to the criminal case, but in civil court. The same results, all charges were dismissed. I appreciate the work they did, their prompt service, care and attention they showed to me and my family. I found their services to be affordable when compared to what they did for me. I would highly recommend them for anyone charged with a crime that they did not do.”

    “Thank you for going above and beyond for the client I referred to you, but more importantly, thank you for the fantastic result. She was my most important client, and you really came through.”

    Attorney John D.

  • Jeff presents himself as a very knowledgeable and able attorney with sincere personal interest in the success of your case.

    “From the minute you call Jeff Engle's office, you are treated with first class respect and service. Jeff is very up front about his experience, results and belief in the success or possible issues with your case. From the time of retainment, Jeff's use of electronic forms of communication keep you up to date to the minute whenever there are developments and progress in your case. This type of communication is nearly unheard of in ANY profession. Many times, I knew that Jeff was taking his personal time to communicate with me. Jeff presents himself as a very knowledgeable and able attorney with sincere personal interest in the success of your case. During times of uncertainty, having someone of Jeff's demeanor at your side will simply make you feel that no matter what the outcome may be, he is right there with you. There was not one time during the course of my case that I felt Jeff was not thoughtful and prepared for. I cannot say enough for the level of professionalism this man presents while representing you as a client.”
