You’ve been arrested in New York State for Driving While Intoxicated or Driving While Ability Impaired by alcohol or drugs, under New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law (V.T.L.) §§ 1192 or 1193.  You could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.  

Along with those charges, you may have been issued New York State traffic tickets for unlicensed operation (V.T.L. § 509), unregistered motor vehicle (V.T.L. § 401), uninspected motor vehicle (V.T.L. § 306), uninsured motor vehicle (V.T.L. § 319), or even aggravated unlicensed operation (V.T.L. § 511).

You’re in serious trouble.

This may be your first encounter with the criminal justice system, or your fourth or fifth.  No matter.  You could go to jail.  You could lose your license or driving privileges.  You are facing substantial financial charges and penalties.  You need an experienced attorney.  You cannot go it alone.  

You’ve come to the right place.

I have practiced as a criminal defense lawyer for my entire career.  As a criminal lawyer and Senior Trial Attorney with The Legal Aid Society of the City of New York, Criminal Defense Division in Brooklyn, I represented thousands of people charged with serious crimes, including every kind of D.W.I. charge and related vehicular violations.  I have continued to represent men and women charged with crimes in both New York State and Federal U.S. District Court -- including the complexities of D.W.I. defense.    

If you’ve been arrested and charged with D.W.I. or a related offense, I want to bring my lifetime of criminal defense experience to your case.  You need maximum advocacy.  Call or email me for a no-cost, free case review and analysis.  My fees are reasonable, and payment plans area easily discussed.
