New York DUI/DWI Lawyer

Driving while intoxicated by alcohol or while your ability is impaired by drugs (DUI/DWI/DWAI) is a serious matter in New York. If you are convicted, you can face very significant penalties, including:

  • The suspension of your driver's license
  • The impounding of your vehicle by the New York Police Department (NYPD)
  • Points and penalties from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
  • Increased insurance rates
  • A criminal conviction on your permanent record
  • Required alcohol treatment programs and counseling

I am attorney Wilson LaFaurie, and my New York law firm has defended more than 1,000 clients charged with drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs. I am not afraid to fight aggressively for the best possible outcome for you, such as the outright dismissal of the charges against you, the restoration of your driving privileges, or a noncriminal disposition and reduced fines.

Fighting for Your Driving Privileges at New York Refusal Hearings

As a former state prosecutor in Kings County and Brooklyn, I know exactly how the prosecution is likely to build its case against you. I will employ every legal defense available to help you combat the charges.

My experience and knowledge is particularly important in refusal hearings after a driver's license suspension. According to New York state vehicle and traffic law Section 1194(2)(C), you can pursue the restoration of your driving privileges if you act promptly and do not allow the hearing to be waived. As your New York DUI/DWI attorney, I will immediately contact the NYPD, the DMV Traffic Bureau and the district attorney on your behalf. I will also diligently argue at the refusal hearing, if applicable, that:

  • You were stopped without probable and reasonable cause.
  • Law enforcement did not follow proper legal procedures during your arrest.
  • The refusal warnings were not properly administered.
