DWI/Drunk Driving Lawyer in Long Island, New York
If you are facing driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges or any other form of a drunk driving charge you need to have a lawyer by your side to argue on your behalf. The consequences of drunk driving charges can include loss of your license, incarceration, increased insurance premiums, and even a requirement to attend driving classes. With stakes that are so high it really doesn’t make any sense for you to try and defend yourself, instead, you need to hire a lawyer who understands the law and can help you have the charges reduced.
Repeat offenders who have had multiple DWI charges may benefit more from help. Someone who is repeatedly finding themselves in court due to drunk driving could use a treatment program to help them understand a problem they may be facing.

As the more effective strategy for repeat offenders, our lawyers typically argue for treatment rather than strict punishment.
