New York Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) Defense Lawyer

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is one of the most common criminal charges in New York. DWI law is a complicated and constantly changing area of law, and requires that your DWI attorney be knowledgeable of the law and local practices that could significantly impact your case. For example, Albany County, Rensselaer County, Schenectady County, and Saratoga County have different policies and rules for plea bargaining DWI cases. Some counties will look at the specifics of the individual arrest, while others will apply a policy across the board, greatly limiting any DWI lawyer’s ability to negotiate a plea bargain.
