Brooklyn DWI Defense Attorney
Award-Winning Representation to Protect Your Future
Any time a person over the age of 21 is caught operating a motor vehicle in New York with a blood alcohol content (BAC) reading of .08 percent or more, they could be charged with a crime. 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 or someone you know is in trouble, get help from a Brooklyn DWI defense attorney who has more than 25 years of experience. At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, we have handled thousands of criminal cases, and we are confident that we can help you avoid worse criminal penalties.
The Consequences of a Conviction
Once the state can confirm that you are a dangerous motorist, their next step will be to prevent you from being able to drive again. With an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side, you can better forecast their strategy and prepare to tell your side of the story.
If you are convicted, you can face very significant penalties, including:
- Suspension of your driver's license
- 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

We represent clients in license suspension hearings and for all other drunk driving charges, from misdemeanors such as DWI and DWAI drugs to serious felonies such as vehicular manslaughter and repeat DWI. We will let you know what DWI penalties you may be facing, then provide effective representation in cases involving DWI car forfeiture.
New York law provides you with the opportunity to regain/restore your driving privileges. As your representative, we will not allow this hearing to be waived. The stakes are too high, and the potential gain is too great. We will get to work immediately to ensure that you receive the strongest representation at your refusal hearing. You can rely on The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie to protect your rights.
New York Refusal Hearings
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. We can immediately contact the NYPD, the DMV Traffic Bureau, and the district attorney on your behalf to ensure this occurs.
We 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
