A DWI is traumatic and embarrassing, and can result in serious consequences. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there are roughly 1.5 million arrests of impaired drivers each year and one-third are repeat offenders. Whether this is your first alcohol-related offense or you are a repeat DWI offender, the aftermath of this crime can have a significant personal and professional impact on your life that only an experienced and seasoned attorney can help mitigate.
In the State of New York, Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is a crime and, if convicted, will result in a criminal record, suspension and/or revocation of your driving privileges, expensive Court and DMV fines, an increase in your insurance rates, and possible jail time or probation. In addition to these negative impacts, driving classes, substance abuse counseling, and/or an ignition interlock device for your vehicle may be mandated. A conviction for DWI may prevent you from future employment, especially where driving is required. It may also restrict military service options and travel to other countries, including Canada.
With so much at stake, it is necessary to obtain an experienced and specialized lawyer to provide guidance and protection in order to obtain the best possible outcome of your DWI.
