Nyack DWI and Criminal Defense Attorney
Need an aggressive DWI defense lawyer in Nyack?
State lawmakers have continued to increase the penalties for DWI with the goal of public safety. If you are accused of any drunk driving offense, even a first time misdemeanor, you can expect very serious consequences if you are convicted. A first time conviction can mean fines up to $1,000, up to 12 months in jail, as well as the loss of your legal right to drive for up to 6 months.
You may also be required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicles, when your license is reinstated. I have gained a great deal of experience in DWI defense, from both sides of the aisle. I formerly served as a Senior Assistant District Attorney, and was in charge of the DWI Bureau. I know the criminal justice system and how to take action for the defense of my clients. I urge you to contact a Nyack DWI lawyer from my firm, the Law Office of Brian Berkowitz, immediately after your arrest.
DWI Lawyer Serving Nyack
I represent my clients in all types of DWI charges, including but not limited to aggravated DWI, cases involving multiple DWIs, DWI & drugs, underage DUI, and other DWI offenses. I know the various DWI defenses that could be effective in achieving a favorable case outcome in court, a dismissal of charges or a reduced charge. If you are hoping to avoid the extreme DWI penalties that can be imposed by the court, it is important that you get representation immediately after your arrest.
I have gained a great deal of knowledge of the science behind breath and blood tests and field sobriety tests and how to best bring errors in administration, testing units, lab procedures or other flaws in the case to the attention of the court. I represent my clients in all DWI hearings, can help fight back against speeding and traffic tickets, and also provide legal counsel for criminal defense on a variety of charges.
You have been arrested and charged; you may be the victim of a faulty testing unit that has been improperly maintained or calibrated, or the test itself was administered incorrectly. Roadside breath testing units can be a problem with regard to accurate readings.
Even blood testing can have errors; in fact, there is no test that is 100% accurate. You deserve to have your case evaluated by a legal professional to determine where the errors in the case lie. I am prepared to assist you if you were arrested and charged in Nyack, and need an aggressive defense lawyer with extensive trial experience.
