In our post law week, we discussed some of the ways that elevated blood-alcohol concentration levels can affect people. Those effects are one of the reasons why all states have laws against drunk driving. All states, including New York, have harsh penalties for drunk driving. Anyone who has been accused of drunk driving should make sure they have good representation.
You need an attorney who will listen to you. The attorney has to be someone you feel comfortable talking to. In a sense, you are putting your future in your attorney’s hands if your case has the possibility of incarceration as a penalty. We understand how important your freedom is. We know that you need the best defense possible. We will work with you throughout your case to determine what options you have and how we should handle those options.
Even if your charge doesn’t carry the possibility of incarceration, there is still the chance of fines, the loss of your driving privileges and other consequences. Even in those cases, we will give your defense our all. We can help you learn the options that are available for dealing with the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. This can be very important if you rely on your driving privileges to earn a living.
Everyone who faces criminal charges of any sort has the right to present a defense against those charges. Understanding how to handle your defense is one of the first steps to ensuring you have the best outcome that is possible based on the circumstances of your case.
