Chestnut Ridge DWI and Criminal Defense Attorney

DWI Defense for Misdemeanor and Felony Charges in Chestnut Ridge

My firm, the Law Office of Brian Berkowitz, has gained a reputation as one of the most aggressive and qualified DWI defense law firms in the Chestnut Ridge area. If you are facing a criminal accusation on a drunk driving charge, I can help. My firm is focused on providing individual client service on a one-on-one basis, and in getting results.

As a former Senior Assistant District Attorney, and having served as the head of the DWI Bureau, I have a great insight into how to defend a DWI charge successfully. I know what the prosecutor will do, and it is possible that I even trained them while I served in the D.A.'s office.

I have turned my legal focus onto assisting those who truly need it the most - those who are accused of committing a DWI crime. It is advised that you contact a Chestnut Ridge DWI lawyer from my firm immediately if you are under arrest. This should be your first call. You have the right to an attorney - make your choice the right one.

DWI Lawyer in Chestnut Ridge: Felony or Misdemeanor Charges

Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor or felony DWI, the penalties are very harsh in this state. A first time DWI conviction can include penalties of up to $1,000 in fines, up to 1 year in jail, and 6 months revocation of your legal right to operate any vehicle. There are other hidden costs, including higher insurance rates, a permanently damaged criminal record, and the potential to be required to install an ignition interlock device in any vehicle you drive.

I represent individuals charged with aggravated DWI, have multiple DWIs on their criminal record, or are being accused of a DWI & drugs, underage DUI, and other DWI offenses. I am very familiar with the DWI defenses that have been successful, and should review your case immediately.

If you are hoping to avoid the heavy DWI penalties, it is important that you have legal representation as early as possible after your arrest. Whether your case involves errors in breath and blood tests, field sobriety tests, the police stop or other type of defense option, I should get into action for you without delay. I offer my services for representation at DWI hearings, in defending speeding and traffic tickets, and for criminal defense.

When you need an attorney to defend you in a DWI case, who you select is of great importance. Not all law firms focus on this area of the law; some attorneys have very little trial experience. When I take on a case, I know all the options for the defense. I take the time to study your case and identify the best course of action for your defense. Call me today for the help you want on your side.
