Potential Consequences of a DWI Conviction

In New York, driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or more is illegal and could result in a DWI/DUI arrest. Additionally, if you are caught operating a vehicle with a BAC of .18 or higher, you could face an aggravated DWI charge, which is penalized by harsher punishments.

Being found guilty of a DWI/DUI could result in jail time, fines, and a driver’s license revocation, which could affect your finances, relationships, and ability to take care of everyday tasks. Also, the conviction information may show up on your criminal record, making it difficult to find employment.

I understand the life-changing consequences of a conviction, and I am committed to providing the dedicated representation you need to defend your case.
