New York City DWAI Attorneys
When someone is alleged to have operated a motor vehicle while having a blood alcohol content greater than .05 and less than .08, they can be charged with driving while ability impaired (DWAI). Although DWI can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the circumstances, DWAI is an infraction. A DWAI conviction will still result in a license suspension, fines and potentially even jail time. A third DWAI within 10 years will be charged as a misdemeanor, not an infraction. Therefore, if you have been accused of DWAI, it is critical that you have a skilled Manhattan driving while ability impaired attorney working on your behalf.
The New York City DWAI lawyers of Goldberg & Allen defend individuals throughout the New York City area against all types of drinking and driving allegations. Our law firm will put forth a powerful defense against DWAI and DWAI-Drugs charges. We will look at your DWAI allegations in the same way we would look at a DWI allegation. We will review whether there was probable cause to stop your vehicle. We will review the police report to determine if there are any inconsistencies. We will be prepared to effectively cross-examine the police officer at a pretrial hearing, or at trial. Our lawyers will gear their full efforts to achieving a favorable outcome in your case.
Pleading a DWI Down to DWAI
In some cases, it may be possible for individuals accused of DWI to plead their case down to DWAI. Our law firm is not a “quick plea, quick fee” law firm; we will explore every potential option before advising you to accept such a plea. If pleading guilty to a DWAI instead of a DWI would be the best possible result in your case, we will look closely at this option.
