Defense For DUI/DWI Charges
Have You Been Arrested On Suspicion Of Drunk Driving?
Drunk driving is a serious offense in New York, even for first-time offenders. Many people may not realize that they could be violating the law when they get behind the wheel of their vehicle after a few drinks. However, the lack of awareness of how much you have had to drink will not make a difference if you are arrested.
This means it is critically important to have an experienced, no-nonsense criminal defense lawyer working on your behalf if you are facing drunk driving charges. Having an effective DUI/DWI attorney, such as one from Simon & Gilman, LLP, behind you can provide you with a solid legal foundation so that you can contest the charges against you.
Rely On Our Knowledge To Help You Fight For Your Rights
There are several circumstances under which a drunk driving arrest might be successfully contested. It might seem, at first glance, that a conviction on such a charge is a foregone conclusion. However, this is not at all true.
The officers involved in the traffic stop are required to act ethically and otherwise appropriately when they pull someone over. If any aspect of the traffic stop or the arrest is not handled using the correct procedures, it could raise doubts as to the validity of the arrest. Mistakes can also occur when testing blood alcohol levels, leading to results that may not be admissible in court.
