Charged With DWI? Know Your Rights.

Many people fail to understand the serious nature of DWI charges. If you have been arrested for driving or boating while intoxicated, it is important that you realize the possible penalties that will apply to your specific situation if you are eventually convicted of the offense.

At LaVelle Law & Associates, P.C., our criminal defense lawyer, William T. LaVelle, is a former major narcotics prosecutor. He has extensive experience on both sides of DWI cases in courtrooms in New York. He understands the issues that will need to be addressed as part of your case, and he will present a strong defense to these allegations on your behalf.

Committed To Providing Aggressive Representation To Our Clients

Most of our clients want to know if they will lose their licenses or face jail time if they are convicted. We help you decide the right strategy for your case, and then we review all of the facts present to begin building your defense.

We want to make sure that law enforcement followed all procedures correctly and that your constitutional rights were not violated during the arrest and intake process. When appropriate, we examine the machines used to test your blood alcohol content to ensure that they are properly calibrated. We review the credentials of those controlling the machines at the time of your test to determine if they were properly certified to perform your test.

Throughout your case, we negotiate with prosecutors to help you obtain a deal that allows you to protect the things most important to you. Should the prosecutors refuse to offer an acceptable plea agreement, we are prepared to take your case to trial. Whether you have been arrested for the first time or have multiple DWIs on your record, we are confident we can help.
