NEW! Question and Answer DWI and DUI Videos!
After you've been charged with DWI while driving, boating, snowmobiling or hunting under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it's important for you to retain a New York attorney experienced in DWI defense as soon as possible.
Why Do You Need an Attorney?
The reason for this is simple, do you know what defenses you can use to win your case? Or why your arrest may not have been legal to begin with? Or when is the best time to approach the prosecuting attorney to get the best deal if all other avenues have been exhausted? Or what the differnce is between a DataMaster and a Alcotest machine? Or what you must do to save your license even before your court appearance? Or what newest New York DWI laws are?
Get The Right Attorney
Some of your friends may advise you to represent yourself in court, or to retain a "cheap" attorney who does not concentrate their practice on the criminal defense of DWI cases. However, given the deceptively complex nature of the charges and their prosecution, and the potentially serious consequences that can flow from a DWI arrest, this would not be advisable. You could find yourself without a driver's license, paying heavy fines, court costs and extensive administrative fees, serving time on probation, in county jail or even state prison. Your vehicle can be impound or taken by forfeiture or subject to mandatory ignition interlock. New York State treats Driving While Intoxicated seriously and New York State's DWI laws are among the toughest in the nation so don't risk finding out the "hard way", about the consequences of the potentially poor decisions you could make without the benefit of competent DWI defense counsel.
The Consequences of DWI Conviction
Aside from the consequences of dealing with the police, the courts, and the Department of Motor Vehicles, there are practical consequences that often flow from a DWI arrest or conviction. Since DWI is a crime, and a DWI conviction will give you a permanent "criminal" record, you could lose your job or be prevented from obtaining certain licenses and permits which could limit your future employment opportunities. If you are a commercial driver and hold a CDL, you could lose your privilege to drive commercially for at least one year. A DWI conviction can cause your insurance rates to rise dramatically and sometimes insurance companies will cancel your coverage altogether. There are other, "hidden" DWI penalties such as limitations on travel to Canada and other foreign counties. At Sciarrino & Sciarrino, P.C. we care about our clients so we will thoroughly and painstakingly develop your case so you may get the best DUI or DWI defense possible. We like to call this approach, "Lawyering in the best sense".
