Finding the right attorney

The best DWI attorney for you is one that is experienced, skilled and can communicate effectively with you.  As you look for an attorney to handle your case, you will find there are a number of attorneys that are experienced and skilled.  If you cannot communicate effectively with your attorney, that experience and skill is useless.  

Communication starts with listening to your concerns and helping to address them as best we can. Sometimes it’s as simple as knowing the most likely outcome of their case. Other times, we need to apply our experience and skill to ensure we address particular concerns.

We can tell most of our clients:

  • You probably will not be convicted of a crime.  Most of our clients get their DWI charges reduced to a non-criminal disposition.
  • You probably won’t need an ignition interlock device.  Most of our clients are never required to install the device that monitors your Blood Alcohol Content before you can start your car.
  • You won’t lose your job. Most clients continue their work without any interruption to their career.

But some clients have more significant concerns. Some clients hire us because we’ve helped so many former clients escape addiction and illness.  For those clients, we work in collaboration with evaluators and treatment providers.  For many clients, their arrest for DWI is an honest wake up call.  We can help.  Call today!

What Is The Evidence For A DWI Conviction In New York?

DWI convictions may seem fairly straightforward, but guilt can be difficult to prove. In New York, there are five factors that must be considered prior to a DWI charge. These five factors will determine if you were intoxicated at the time of your arrest and the severity of your charges and will also determine if a lawful arrest was made.

According to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, intoxication is based on five factors:

  • The amount of alcohol consumed
  • The amount of food eaten along with the drink(s)
  • The amount of time over which the individual was drinking
  • Bodyweight
  • Gender

For these reasons, it’s hard to make rules on intoxication based on the number or kind of drinks a person had. Evidence collected at the scene can also be inconclusive. Police officers can also make arrests based on “reasonable grounds” to believe a driver has been drinking. These reasons vary and can be fought in court.

If you were arrested as a result of a failed breathalyzer test or refusal of a field sobriety test, schedule a consultation to see how our team can help today. We can also answer your questions and help you with other municipal offenses.
