Why Choosing the Right DWI Lawyer Matters

July 6, 2022


Driving while intoxicated is a serious offense that can result in steep fines, driver’s license revocation, and jail time, among other penalties. In addition to the penalties for this charge, a convicted driver may face negative consequences when searching for a new job or applying to college or the military. A DWI conviction can affect your future for years after the conviction. With so much at stake, it is imperative you hire the right attorney to defend you.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

You do not want to handle your DWI case without an experienced DWI attorney. DWI is more complicated than it seems, and involves a number of technical laws and legal rules. There are laws relating to how the police can treat you following an arrest, and how the prosecution handles your case.  You need an experienced DWI attorney who understands these New York laws. Hiring a skilled lawyer will put you in the best position to prevail in court. Of course, hiring a lawyer does not guarantee that you will not be convicted of DWI. Each case is different, and different laws may apply to each individual’s situation. However, hiring the right attorney greatly increases your chances of succeeding in court. This may mean reducing the DWI to a lesser charge, avoiding jail time, or an acquittal. Without an experienced, quality attorney, it will be much more difficult to defend yourself and protect your rights.
