WHY HIRE Our Dwi Lawyer in rochester, NY
As experienced DWI lawyers, we will give you a reliable and accurate evaluation of your case.
We will present you and your case in the best possible light when requesting a reduction of your charge from the District Attorney's Office.
We will recognize the potential pitfalls of your case and at the same time build a strong defense around the weaknesses of the prosecutor’s case.
We will challenge and litigate any issues surrounding illegal police activity and the way evidence was collected against you, including your field sobriety tests, any statements you made, and any BAC tests. It is possible to have these items thrown out; effectively destroying or limiting the prosecution’s case.
We are seasoned trial lawyers which is crucial if your case must go to trial. We will challenge the prosecution on their knowledge of the Rules of Evidence and New York State Criminal Procedure; requiring them to prove their case BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT.
If you plead guilty or are found guilty after a trial, we will work to present you in the best possible light to the judge who will ultimately decide your sentence. There are many ways to show that your DWI was an isolated event, that you take it seriously, and that it will never happen again. Taking these steps is essential to obtaining the lowest and least restrictive sentence possible.
Lastly, whether your DWI arrest was the result of an isolated instance of bad judgment or an indication of a more serious alcohol or drug addiction, we can provide you with recommended resources for rehabilitation, counseling, or other services.
If you are charged with a DWI, or any other crime, which lawyer you choose is the most important decision you will make.
