A DWI charge is considered the most serious offense when it comes to traffic violations. Your defense against these charges should be taken just as serious. With DWI laws in New York being very complex, it is crucial to seek representation so are not navigating this process alone. Consequences of a DWI include loss of your vehicle, fines, license suspension and even jail time. So while the state works on your conviction, put yourself at the advantage and let Michael T. Pattison work on your defense!

What to do when you are charged with a DWI or DWAI?

If you have been charged with DWI or DWAI by an officer after submitting to either Field Sobriety Tests or a BAC test that was above the legal limit of 0.08% and arrested, your first step of action must be to consult with an experienced New York attorney, who can help protect your rights and prevents your driving privileges from being suspended. There are two main cases that will need to be taken care of, following your arrest: the legal case, in which the DWI Penalties may have an impact on your freedom and liberty; and the NYSDMV case, in which your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.

When it comes to DWI arrests, time is of essence. You just have ten days to request an administrative hearing with the DHSMV, to challenge the suspension of your license, after which it will be automatically suspended for at least six months.
