Helping You Fight DWI/DUI Charges

Even if you are a first-time offender, a drunk driving conviction carries severe penalties under New York law. In fact, whether you are facing charges associated with driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI), an ultimate conviction may, depending on the circumstances, have many consequences, including:

  • Possible jail time
  • Substantial fines
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Installation of ignition interlock device (IID) on any car you own or operate

While the potential criminal penalties are already severe for first-time offenders, they increase significantly if you are a repeat offender or register a blood-alcohol concentration of .18 percent (aggravated DWI) ― making it more important than ever to seek the guidance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

What If I Refuse A Breathalyzer?

If you think refusing a breath test is always a good idea, think again. In fact, while you may be able to limit the evidence against you, a breath test refusal has its own set of penalties under New York law, including an immediate one-year license revocation and a fine ― not to mention you may still face DWI charges even without the Breathalyzer evidence.

However, if you have already been accused to refusing a breath test in New York, you may be able to challenge your license revocation at a refusal hearing. But, you must act fast or risk losing this option, which is simply another reason it is best to contact The Rand Law Firm, P.C., and speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
