Being arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or impaired by drugs doesn't have to be a devastating experience. While a conviction for DWI can lead to a revocation of your driver's license, increase in cost of auto insurance, jail sentence, probation, forfeiture of your automobile, and loss of your reputation, most DWI cases in New York State can be successfully defended by an experienced DWI defense attorney.

The return of your driver's license and driving privileges is of foremost importance. Depending on your circumstances, we can get your full driving privileges restored, or at least a restricted driver's license immediately.

While success of each DWI defense case depends on the individual facts and circumstances, there may be some common issues that can lead to a favorable result. Our DWI Defense Attorney Law Firm has successfully represented a wide spectrum of individuals in all types of occupations and from all backgrounds. We have a strong record of DWI acquittals, dismissals and reductions of DWI charges, and we are successful in having DMV suspensions and revocations set aside. Several of our wins have been published in the New York Reporter, The New York DWI Bulletin, and the New York Law Journal.

To support your DWI case, we do a comprehensive analysis and advise you of your legal rights and options. As we fight aggressively for you, we will inform you of the strengths and weakness of your case and allow you to decide the course of action to take.

We take pride in our service. Our professional staff will always keep you informed of your case's status. Your calls will always be returned promptly and we are always available to you in the office by appointment, 7 days a week. And there are no additional charges for telephone calls, letters, or office consultation, no matter how many occur.

Most importantly, our legal representation does not end when your court case has concluded. We stay with you throughout he complicated process of getting a conditional driver's license, and help you through the NY State Drinking Driving Program. Few, if any, of our clients ever get referred out for additional treatment.

Our offices are conveniently located in both Nassau County and Suffolk County. We accept all major credit cards. We look forward to speaking with you when you call our office at the (516) 794-3500 to schedule an initial, free consultation.
