Protecting your rights after a drunk driving charge

When a driver is pulled over by a police officer, he or she has numerous concerns. If the driver is suspected of drunk driving, many of his or her concerns may revolve around legal rights during the stop and what to do if he or she ends up charged with a DWI. Our law firm understands that New Yorkers who are suspected of drunk driving seek to protect their rights and driving privileges. Depending on the circumstances, this could be a serious criminal charge resulting in serious penalties and long-term consequences.

What are the long-term consequences of a criminal record?

Facing criminal charges is a difficult situation to deal with for defendants in New York and elsewhere in the nation. Not only do the allegations create hardships such as a damaged reputation, but past convictions or a conviction on the current allegations could have long-term impacts that could be worse than the penalties they could or will face as a result of the criminal charges.

Making a defense against drug manufacturing charges

Residents in New York are well aware that accusations of drug crimes could lead to serious charges and penalties if convicted. Whether it is the accused's first allegation or if the defendant has a previous criminal record, it is not only essential that a defendant understands the charges and the consequences they carry, but also that defendants develop a criminal defense. Taking this step could help the accused avoid or reduce penalties and even prevent damages to their personal and professional reputation.

Man stopped on New York interstate faces aggravated DWI

Drivers in New York are pulled over for various reasons. One of these reasons is intoxication. If an officer believes that a motorist is driving under the influence, they will not only pull him or her over but will likely also conduct some tests to determine if he or she is intoxicated. This usually means field sobriety tests will be conducted as well as a breathalyzer test. Depending on the results of these tests, a driver might be arrested and charged with a DWI. When this happens, it is imperative that the suspected drunk driver should understand that he or she has defense options that may be able to help him or her get the charges reduced or dismissed.
