What to Do After Being Accused of a DUI in New York

The state of New York is cracking down on drivers who operate motor vehicles under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Consequently, a drunk driving conviction can be serious, particularly for those who have more than one conviction. In Nassau County, a DWI or DUI arrest is a violation of the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law and is considered a criminal offense. Offenders may face license revocation or license suspension, probation, fines, time in jail, and a requirement to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicles.

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, contact me, Jason Steinberger, to defend you. I am an aggressive criminal and DWI/DUI defense lawyer in Nassau County, and I am committed to ensuring your legal rights are protected. I have handled more than 3,000 DWI cases on behalf of my clients, and I am available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer your questions and address your concerns.

A DWI Attorney Can Help to Protect Your Legal Rights

Whether your current conviction is your very first DUI offense or you are facing a second DWI charge, I use legal tactics to increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome for you. As your criminal defense lawyer, I must first investigate what happened at the time of your arrest, as there are sometimes complications with police interrogations, field sobriety tests that were improperly conducted, and illegal stops. After your arrest, it is important not to speak to anyone, as anything you say may be held against you. Instead, consider seeking legal counsel in order to protect your rights.

DUI cases are not “guaranteed wins” for prosecutors when defendants have a skilled DWI attorney involved. I can help to protect your driver’s license and defend you to the best of my ability. Even if you refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test, I may be able to create a defense for you. Contact me today to receive a free case evaluation and to learn more about how I may be able to assist you in dealing with the conviction that you are currently facing so that you may move past this event and continue with your life.

Representing Non-New Yorkers Against Drunk Driving Convictions

If you do not currently live in New York and you are accused of driving under the influence, you may find yourself facing other legal complications. Although the state of New York cannot legally revoke your driver’s license in the state in which you live, you may be unable to operate a motor vehicle in this state while the case is proceeding following a drunk driving conviction.

While you may want to turn a blind eye on this penalty, particularly if you have no plans to return to New York or if your stay here is almost over, you must realize that the state in which you live may revoke or suspend your license and require you to pay fines or penalties in addition to what you will be required to pay in the state of New York. If you are currently in this situation and you do not know where to turn, contact me today. I have represented out-of-state drivers, and I can help to explain the legalities behind the conviction that you may be facing and work to protect your legal rights.
