New York City is cracking down on drunk drivers. If you've been arrested, you need a DUI lawyer to fight back.
A conviction for DUI ("driving under the influence"), also known as DWI ("driving while intoxicated") has very serious consequences, especially for repeat offenders.
Consequences may include license suspension or revocation, heavy fines, probation, jail time, and installation of an ignition interlock device in your car (at your expense).
I have over 25 years' experience as a New York City DUI attorney, defending my clients' freedom and driving privileges. I'm committed to protecting your rights.
Whether this is your first DUI, or you've being convicted in the past, I use facts and the law to help you achieve the most favorable possible outcome.
I will always examine the facts surrounding your arrest. Sometimes there are issues with:
Police misconduct leading up to arrest could result in evidence being thrown out of court, and possibly dismissal of all DUI-related charges.
If you're accused of refusing to provide a breath sample, I try to build a solid defense around the facts of your alleged refusal.
If you're an out-of-state resident accused of drunk driving in New York, you'll face legal complexities beyond what New York residents must deal with.
While New York can't revoke your license in your home state, you'll lose your privilege to drive in New York if you're convicted. You'll probably also lose the right to drive in New York while your case is pending.
Also, your home state might suspend or revoke your license based on a DUI conviction in New York. Your home state might also impose hefty fines and other penalties – in addition to the penalties imposed by New York.
