Why It Is Worth Fighting Your DWI
If you have been charged with a DWI, you might be assuming you will be found guilty. You might believe there is nothing you can do. In many cases, however, there are things you can do to improve your legal position because the government has not proven its case yet.
How A DWI Case Can Change
DWI charges do not always lead to a conviction. Here are examples of details that can change a case:
- The stop was illegal
- The field sobriety test was administered improperly
- Your Miranda rights were not read
- You have a clean record and your blood alcohol level was barely over the legal limit
Our attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience. We know how to find police mistakes in DWI cases and how to protect your rights. We also know how to negotiate with prosecutors.
You Do Not Want A DWI On Your Record
In New York, an individual can be charged with drunk driving when the driver’s blood alcohol content reaches .08. Penalties can include license suspension of at least six months; jail time up to one year; and fines up to $5,000.
Those penalties are bad, and the penalties in New York for a second DWI conviction can be even worse. You absolutely do not want two DWI convictions. The best way to avoid a second DWI is to not be convicted of a first DWI.
