DWI Defense Strategies: Exploring All Angles On Your Case

As enforcement and testing technologies continue to advance, it gets ever more challenging to "beat" a charge of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in New York. However, police do make mistakes and commit procedural violations. The best decision you can make if you have been arrested in Queens or any nearby community is to contact a defense lawyer who will look at every angle on your case and work to understand your personal priorities.

Turn To A Proven Lawyer Who Emphasizes Investigation And Strategy

Having spent 20 years as a prosecutor in Queens and more recent years focused intently on protection of my clients, including many accused of DWI, I have strong knowledge of all viable DWI defense strategies. I always scrutinize police reports and videos, when available, for inconsistencies and violations of my clients' rights. Key, basic considerations include:

  • Did the police have probable cause for the traffic stop and arrest?
  • Were you properly informed of your constitutional rights and given the opportunity to contact an attorney?
  • Was blood alcohol content testing equipment in proper working order and used correctly?
  • Were samples and any other evidence handled properly through every phase of the process?

I will ask the right questions and learn everything I can about the events leading up to your arrest and your time in police custody. Together, we can talk through other critical factors and their likely impact on your case — such as the more limited options you have if you refused a breath or blood test, or the necessity to fight this charge in light of your prior record of DWI charges or other alcohol-related driving charges.
