How Our DUI Defense Lawyers Can Help
Too many individuals proceed with their DWI case without consulting a qualified criminal defense attorney. This is because many drivers incorrectly believe that the only legal option that they have after a DUI arrest is to plead guilty to the charges and accept the full consequences of a conviction.
The truth is that you have many legal options after a DUI / DWI arrest and there are many different approaches that can be taken depending on the circumstance of your arrest.
Challenging Your DWI Arrest
The first thing that you should know is that you can fight a DWI charge in New York and you can win.
There are many grounds on which a DWI arrest can be challenged:
- Did the arresting officer have sufficient reason to stop your vehicle?
- Were the field sobriety tests administered correctly?
- Are the chemical test results accurate?
- Did the officer read you your Miranda rights?
These are only a few of the many challenges that can be made to a DWI arrest. Even if you believe that there is no way to fight the charges, a simple mistake by an arresting officer can render certain “evidence” against you as inadmissible.
Our experienced lawyers have successfully helped many drivers to challenge their DWI arrests and become completely acquitted of the charges against them. We are prepared to aggressively fight to defend your rights too.
Negotiating A Favorable Plea Bargain
Even if it is not possible to get the charges dropped, it may be possible to negotiate a favorable plea bargain with reduced charges and a reduction in penalties.
By simply pleading “guilty,” drivers are likely to face the maximum penalties associated with the charges against them.
However, with the help of a qualified DWI defense attorney, many drivers are able to negotiate a favorable outcome, such as:
- A reduction in criminal charges
- A reduction in fines and fees
- Reduction or elimination of license suspension
- Reduction or elimination of jail sentence
