DWI Lawyer Buffalo NY

Over the years, DWI has become a serious crime with substantial consequences. For Instance, the new Leandras Law states that if a person drives drunk with a child in the vehicle it is now a Felony, and an Ignition Interlock Device is now required for all DWI First Offenders. In addition, the failed Charlotte's Law provoked the governor to amend the NY State DMV Regulations for Re-Licensing after a Revocation. The new rules impact Repeat DWI Offenders requiring a Life Time Review of their Driving Records sometimes resulting in a Lifetime Revocation of their drivers licenses.

Being arrested for DWI is no longer a joke, and cases need to be handled properly.

The DWI Arrest

DWI Arrest

If you are here, you probably have already been arrested for DWI, and are seeking counsel. What follows is what typically happens when someone is arrested for DWI. First it is probable that the nightmare began after the driver was stopped by the police for some sort of vehicle and traffic law violation. Then the officer discovered the odor of alcohol on the drivers breath (or claims to have). Next the officer proceeded to build his case by asking the driver to take the Field Sobriety Tests. The driver failed some of the tests and the officer had probable cause to make the arrest. The driver was probably taken back to the station and was asked to take a breath test. Finally the driver was booked and taken to jail or was released with an appearance ticket to appear before the Court. At this point the driver needs a Lawyer.

What should you consider when choosing a DWI Lawyer?

Regardless of whether your arrest for DWI (also known as Driving Under the Influence (DUI)) involved a traffic accident, you should always choose a lawyer that has Criminal Law experience.
