Lewis & Lewis, P.C. regularly represents individuals facing felony and misdemeanor charges, as well as violations. We handle DWI and DWAI cases both in County Court and in Town and Village Courts.
We believe it is critically important to hire an experienced and effective DWI lawyer as soon as you are charged with DWI or DWAI, so that your case can be properly investigated; so that your constitutional and other rights can be preserved; and so that you fully understand your rights, the path your case will take through the courts, and the possible penalties in your case.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) cases are particularly complex. Issues in these cases range from suspensions pending prosecution and the admissibility of field sobriety and chemical testing, to probable cause for vehicle stops and the impact DWI and DWAI convictions have on commercial driver’s licenses and ordinary drivers’ licenses.
The penalties in DWI and DWAI cases are particularly difficult to understand in cases where our client was previously convicted of DWI or DWAI, so called “multiple offender” cases. That is why, as in criminal cases, we believe that individuals facing DWI or DWAI charges should contact an experienced and effective DWI or DWAI lawyer as soon as they are arrested.
