A Strong Defense Against DUI/DWI Charges

Were you stopped on the New York I-87 Thruway or another road in Ulster County? Did an officer arrest you after claiming you were impaired?

You probably will not go to jail, but you could lose your driver's license. The costs may also be more than you anticipated. But there could be a defense or there may not be enough evidence to support the charge.

After drunk driving charges, call 845-255-9100 to speak with me as soon as possible to discuss what happened.

An Experienced New Paltz DUI/DWI Attorney

With more than 40 years of legal experience, the first thing that I do in a case is determine the facts. This allows me to determine how to proceed. Over my career, I have worked as a prosecutor and town judge. Through this past experience, I am able to see each side of the case. This helps me identify defenses related to the stop and testing equipment/procedures as well as weaknesses in the prosecutor's case.

Next, if the charge was improper I will work to have the charges dismissed or reduced. For example, a client could be charged with DWI after losing control of a vehicle after falling asleep. If the individual had taken a prescription that had no driving restriction, there might not be probable cause to support the charge.

Last, when it is not possible to negotiate a satisfactory plea or dismissal of the criminal charges, I have the ability to take your case to trial. I will also explain whether options might be available to limit costs or the effects of a license suspension.
