Avoiding a DWI Conviction in Syracuse, NY
What does it take to avoid a DWI conviction? First of all, you must consult with a Syracuse DWI attorney if you hope to fight the charges and avoid the serious consequences that come with a conviction. I, Dennis Claus at the Law Office of Dennis Claus provides clients with experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel that is very familiar with all aspects of DWI, including
violation of DWI probation,
DWI plea bargains,
suspension pending prosecution and even
hardship and conditional licenses. If you are looking for serious
DWI defense against the looming possibility of
DWI penalties, such as the
ignition interlock device, you need not look any further. I am able to defend against DWI-related charges, such as the following:
If you were subjected to a field sobriety test,
breathalyzer test or
blood test during the arrest process and were told that you failed, if you have been charged with a
breath test refusal, you can rest easier knowing that I will be on your side every step of the way to help you obtain the just outcome that you fully deserve. From helping clients who have had
multiple DWI arrests who are now facing a
felony DWI, those charged with
drugs and DWI (such as
marijuana and DWI), I have proven my mettle.
I am even able to help drivers who were arrested for driving under the influence as commercial drivers, when
out of state or when they had a
child passenger in the car. So don't wait! If you have questions about
illegal police stops,
DWI roadblocks or how
blood alcohol concentration can impact your overall case, it is highly encouraged that you consult with me as soon as possible. I know what is on the line – you can be confident knowing that I will fight for you. While many believe that they have no options when arrested for DWI, the truth is that there are a number of possible defenses that can be used to prevent a conviction. My firm offers clients the opportunity to avoid license suspension, steep fines, community service and even jail time by providing them with a vigorous defense.
Syracuse DWI Lawyer - Fighting to Protect You
The DWI laws in our state are harsh, imposing fines from $500 all the way up to $10,000, depending on the severity of the charges. You can go to jail or even prison in serious felony DWI charges. In order to take action to avoid these repercussions, consulting with a skilled DWI lawyer who knows the steps that need to be taken to fight for your rights is essential. My firm focuses on the details of your police stop, arrest, testing and other procedures to find any errors or discrepancies that may affect your case. Without an attorney who knows how to analyze the evidence properly and knows what to look for, you could risk your freedom and license. With over 31 years of experience, I can be trusted to provide you with knowledgeable and professional legal representation.
A conviction on a DWI offense can have long term consequences that reach much further than just the current charges. You could be facing years of assessments imposed by the DMV, a criminal record that can increase your insurance rates and ruin your chances of certain types of employment. With my firm's help, we will seek to keep your license from being suspended, work towards reducing your fines, avoid the loss of a job and keep you from having to have probation or be sent to jail. I, attorney Dennis Claus do all I can to fight for your future, your freedom, and your defense.
About Drunk Driving Charges in Syracuse
Whether this is your first DWI offense or you have found yourself to be a repeat offender of the law, it is always strongly suggested that you speak with a seasoned legal representative from a firm known for their ability to deliver exceptional representation and defense. Fortunately, when working with my firm, that is exactly what you get. When you are first pulled over and administered a field sobriety test, you will be forced to submit some kind of alcohol screening test, such as a breath test, blood test, walk and turn test or another test. It is important to understand that if you do not comply with the test standards, your license will be immediately revoked by the arresting officer and you will be arrested for drunk driving.
However, not all drunk driving charges are technically illegal. In the state of New York, you must blow a .08% or higher to be charged with DWI or you must be clearly impaired. If not, your DWI defense lawyer may be able to defend against your charges to have them suppressed. Another way to have your charges suppressed is to challenge the breath test. As a seasoned attorney, I will be able to investigate your charges by looking into the testing machinery to determine if the machine that tested your breath was improperly calibrated or poorly maintained. I will also conduct interrogations on the arresting officers to determine if you were wrongly pulled over or arrested. After my investigation is complete, we may be able to conjure an aggressive defense to counter your DWI charges.
