New York Traffic Crimes Attorney
Penalties for drunk driving offenses in New York have become dramatically more severe in recent years, and many count our state’s DWI laws among the nation’s toughest. The Child Passenger Protection Act, or Leandra’s Law, now requires mandatory ignition interlock for all DWI offenders, and it makes a first-offense DWI with a child under 16 in the car a felony. Our state also treats offenses such as driving under suspension extremely seriously.
We are not “speeding ticket lawyers,” and we do not handle basic moving violations. Both attorneys in our firm are former high-ranking officials in the Brooklyn D.A.’s office, and we devote our energies to charges with potentially serious impact on our clients. Those matters include the most serious driving crimes, such as:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI), including first-time and multiple offenses, felony DWI and underage DWI
- Driving under suspension or aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO)
- Reckless driving or hit and run
- Vehicular manslaughter or vehicular assault
Skilled Defense Advocacy in DWI, AUO and Other Driving Offense Cases
Attorney Gerald Allen is a proven, highly respected DWI defense lawyer, and both attorneys in our New York City firm have experience training prosecutors on indictment and prosecution of unlicensed and suspended drivers. Today, we apply that experience on the defense side in a determined effort to prevent unjust convictions and help New Yorkers avoid the most devastating penalties and consequences.
Driving under suspension or revocation is a serious offense on its own. You do not have to cause an accident or commit another crime such as DWI to face jail time and other serious penalties — sometimes including required forfeiture of your vehicle.
