Background and Experience
Zerbe & Pence, for more than 30 years, have defended West Virginians charged with driving under the influence or while intoxicated (DUI/DWI), vigorously defended persons charged with misdemeanors and felonies, and helped disabled individuals secure necessary Social Security benefits. Our record of success is unmatched.
We believe that hard work, due diligence, and preparation are the keys to success. Our reputation speaks for itself: Zerbe & Pence are the best at what we do. This is why we are among West Virginia’s most trusted and successful lawyers.
What separates the attorneys at Zerbe & Pence PLLC from the other criminal defense lawyers is that we have invested substantial time and energy into learning the laws and science surrounding DUI cases. For example, Carter Zerbe is recognized as a certified instructor on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) field sobriety tests, and has taught numerous seminars on DUI laws and tactics in West Virginia. David Pence is trained and certified as an operator of the Intoximeter EC/IR II breath machine used in West Virginia, and is a member of the National College of DUI Defense.
Together, the team of Zerbe & Pence has the skill, knowledge, and experience to advise you throughout the entire process after an arrest for DUI. As natives of West Virginia, we understand the negative consequences that can arise from possibly losing your license and the stigma of carrying a criminal conviction for DUI. This is why it is so important to contact a skilled attorney right away to ensure your rights are protected.
Our attorneys also fight hard for the rights of disabled individuals who have been denied benefits from the Social Security Administration. We understand the rules and regulations governing Social Security disability, and can put our years of experience to work for you!
