Every county in New York State has a STOP/DWI program. This means more police with better equipment are on the roads looking for impaired drivers, more district attorneys are prosecuting them, and more judges are hearing drinking driving cases. You need an experienced New York DWI lawyer protecting you against the criminal system. We strive to protect our clients’ rights and interests by challenging the stop on Fourth Amendment grounds and by challenging the accuracy of breath tests, blood tests, and urine tests. We can also get clients into treatment programs that mean avoiding more serious punishments.
