Helping drivers who face criminal charges for drunk driving
As experienced criminal defense attorneys in NYC, we at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, know that a DWI can be a life changer. That is why we use every tool in our legal arsenal to assist you in building a solid defense. Contrary to popular belief, you can combat a DWI charge. But to do so, you need a competent criminal defense team by your side.
Our firm is comprised of well-known and respected lawyers who have experience as former prosecutors. This gives us, and you, an edge throughout your case and especially in the courtroom.
Building a DWI/DUI defense in NYC
We have a thorough understanding of NY DWI law. This enables us to craft a defensive strategy specifically designed for your situation. If you are facing a felony conviction for drunk driving, it is essential that you fight back. A felony charge can result in prison time and costly fines. After assessing your case, we may determine that the police performed an illegal stop, the Breathalyzer test was administered improperly or you were not properly Mirandized (read your rights at the time of your arrest).
We build strong defenses for New Yorkers with the following types of cases:
- Repeat DWI: Any DWI/DUI charge in NYC should be promptly challenged with the assistance of a lawyer. If you face a second or third DWI/DUI charge, your freedom may be at stake.
- Underage DWI/DUI: Drivers who are under 21 and charged with a DWI/DUI should seek immediate legal aid. Your academic, social and professional life may suffer if you are convicted of drunk driving.
- Commercial DWI/DUI: The laws governing the use of alcohol by commercial drivers are strict. Not only is there a lower blood alcohol content (BAC) threshold for commercial drivers, but the penalties are also much more severe.
If you or someone you care about is arrested for a DWI/DUI, the biggest mistake you can make is thinking the charges are not a big deal. A drunk driving conviction could lead to a suspension of your license, costing you untold amounts of money in lost wages or transportation costs. The effects on your life for DWI convictions involving prescription or designer drugs are even more severe. Seeking the advice of a competent attorney with the skills to reduce or eliminate your charges may be your best bet.
Whether it is your first offense or you are charged with an underage DWI, your life could change forever if you are convicted. Let Raiser & Kenniff, PC, defend your rights and protect your future.
