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), a conviction may have serious consequences, including:

  • Possible jail time
  • Substantial fines
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Installation of an 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 penalties under New York law, including an immediate one-year license revocation and a fine ― and you may still face DWI charges even without the Breathalyzer evidence.

If you have already been accused of refusing a breath test in New York, you may be able to challenge your license revocation at a refusal hearing. But you must act quickly 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.
