DWI Defense Rochester, NYDWI Defense

A night out with friends has ended with you being placed under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated.  You thought you were okay to drive, but in the opinion of the police officer you were operating your vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Maybe this is the first time you have ever been placed under arrest.  You are scared, embarrassed and worried – about your license, your job, your reputation, your family.

Maybe you’ve been arrested for DWI in the past.  You’re worried about a felony conviction, enhanced penalties, even jail or state prison.

Maybe you have been accused of Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs and you are wondering why, because you only took the medicines your doctor prescribed to you.

That’s where I come in.  I have handled literally thousands of Driving While Intoxicated cases as a defense attorney and prosecutor.  I know DWI law, how to spot the issues that can work in your favor, and I know how to effectively try a DWI case.

In each DWI case, there is more than meets the eye.  Were you legally pulled over?  Can it be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that you were operating the vehicle?  Were the roadside tests properly administered?  Were you properly advised of your rights?  Was the machine used to determine your blood alcohol content properly calibrated and in working order?

Maybe you were arrested as a result of passing through a sobriety checkpoint.  These type of DWI cases have their own unique aspects that I am well familiar with.

DWI cases involve these and so many more issues.  Don’t assume the worst, and don’t settle for less than the best representation.

Together we can work for the best possible outcome to your DWI case, because I am on your side.
