Traffic Violations

Charges of driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence are taken very seriously in the legal system. For that reason a police officer may sometimes be overzealous in his or her position and unjustifiably stop a driver who has had very little to drink, perhaps even under the legal limit and without being involved in an accident. At times, without intention, an individual may overestimate his or her ability to drive after consuming some alcohol and underestimate the amount they have actually had to drink.

A conviction in cases where the drunk driver was behind the wheel may significantly impact a person’s record and insurance, and even result in fines, license suspension, license revocation and/or jail time.

Penalties for driving while intoxicated in New York are based on criteria such as age, the substance that the arrested individual took, the number of previous offenses, as well as his or her driving record. An individual who is found to have multiple offenses would be punished more harshly.

The law offices of Zev Goldstein delve deep to investigate each DWI or DUI charge, defending clients to limit the penalties they will be handed for their indiscretions. In any drunk driving case, we question whether the accused was legally stopped in his or her car, whether the police officer’s suspicions were justified before issuing a field sobriety test, if the breathalyzer was functioning and cleaned properly, as well as if the officer knew how to administer a breath test the right way.

If you or someone you know has been charged with drunk driving, we recommend consulting our firm for helpful guidance and representation. We can negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf and fight for your rights.
