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

  • He treats you with respect, has a great personality, keeps you informed, makes you feel comfortable, and takes time to answer any questions.

    “Hired the Law Office to handle the new Adam Walsh Act law going into effect December 20, 2012. State of PA and State Police was requiring that I register under the new law. Not only required to register but also changing my Tier level from Tier 1 to Tier Pending. Originally was required to register as a Tier 1 for 10 years but under the new law they were requiring to register for life. Attorney Engle took the case and fought from the day he was hired until the case was resolved. This is the only Law Firm I have dealt with that work diligently and kept us well informed throughout the case. Our case Won on two levels: 1. I am no longer required to register under the new Adam Walsh Act. 2. Successfully removed my name from the Sex Offender Registry. I am no longer listed on State or Federal Megan Law web site. I have worked with several Law firms over the past 10 years and Attorney Engle is the best Attorney. He treats you with respect, has a great personality, keeps you informed, makes you feel comfortable, and takes time to answer any questions. He fought for my rights where not too many attorneys out there will. AND he WON our case against the State Attorney General and the Pennsylvania State Police. I will recommend this Law Firm to anyone that need legal representation no matter what the case might be. Big or small this is the law firm you want to hire. I cannot nor can anyone predict the same outcome but they will fight for your best interest.”

  • Elisabeth took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process.

    “I needed a criminal defense lawyer for a family member. So, having been represented by Shaffer & Engle previously, I contacted them. Elisabeth took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process. The case was dismissed which was the best verdict that could be achieved. We are so thankful and blessed to have had such a wonderful attorney!”

  • They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process.

    “Jeff is the fourth attorney that I have worked with regarding custody of my son. My previous attorneys were neither knowledgeable of the law as it applied to my case nor followed through on the actions they said they would take. Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion. Given that my case involved an international relocation, allocation of sole custody for residency purposes abroad, and a non-custodial parent who was anything but cooperative, there was a high likelihood that my case would be unsuccessful with even the potential of being ordered to return to the US to maintain physical custody of my son. Today my child and I are happily living abroad and I was able to obtain the residency permit for my son to remain here. I attribute the success of my case to Jeff and his firm. They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process. Thank you!”

  • Very professional, knowledgeable and straight to the point. No hesitation what so ever on how or why they tackle your case.

    “Jeff and the practice Shaffer & Engle Law are outstanding at what they do in the court room. Very professional, knowledgeable and straight to the point. No hesitation what so ever on how or why they tackle your case. They answer their emails, phone and texts promptly as they should with any retainer lawyer. I highly recommend them for any judicial system issue.”

  • 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.”
