DUI / DWI

New York DUI / DWI Lawyers

In New York, a DUI / DWI conviction can also bring fines, license revocation, and even jail time in some cases. It can also give you a criminal record that will influence your ability to get a job, get loans, get into school, etc.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer can make a significant difference in your case. At Schwartz, Ponterio & Levenson, PLLC, we help people charged with New York DUI / DWI crimes. Our lawyers are available for consultations; contact us to set up an appointment.

Defense against DUI / DWI Charges

The ultimate goal in any drunk driving case is of course to get all charges dropped. This may be possible if police made an illegal stop, used faulty equipment to judge sobriety, or made other procedural errors. Our attorneys review every case carefully to see if an acquittal is possible.

But in a majority of cases, a full dismissal of charges is not realistic. New York police now have videotape every time someone is pulled over. Often, a defense attorney's goal is to avoid a conviction. Avoiding a conviction means avoiding jail time. It also means keeping your criminal record clear.

Reducing Charges

As long as no one was hurt in the alleged DUI / DWI, our attorneys can usually get a case reduced to a traffic violation or a misdemeanor. Clients may have to undergo an alcohol awareness or safe driving program, but these are much better options than a felony conviction.

If someone was hurt in the incident, or other charges were made, we will gladly explore other options. We maintain a wide-ranging criminal defense practice, encompassing drug offenses, assault, etc.
