NEW YORK CITY DWI DEFENSE LAWYER

 

MISDEMEANOR DWI CHARGES

 

The vast majority of DWI cases in New York City are misdemeanors. These cases are usually first arrests and there is no bail. The problem with these cases is that while they may be misdemeanors, they are still criminal records. In New York state if you are convicted of a crime you will have a criminal record for the rest of your life and there is very little that can be done about this. Also, these types of cases carry jail terms up to one year. This is usually served at New York City's prison, Riker's Island.

A criminal record can be an impedement to obtaining a job, promotion and certain government benefits. If you have been charged with a DWI in any of the five boroughs of New York City, contact us at 917-519-8417 and let us put our experience to work for you.
