DWI Defense Lawyers in Newburgh

Hudson Valley Drunk Driving Defense Law Firm

Even though DWAI (driving while ability impaired) is technically considered a traffic offense and not a "crime" in the way that DWI is — the potential consequences — jail, fines, the loss of your drivers' license and loss of insurance — are similar enough that you need experienced legal help. At Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, you will find attorneys who have the skills, courtroom experience, and dedication you will need and deserve to have on your side in the weeks and months ahead.

We take DWAI charges seriously and can provide the experienced, aggressive defense representation you will need to minimize the damage. Call or contact us today and learn more about what our lawyers can do to protect your rights.

Our attorneys have obtained positive results for clients charged with each of the following:

  • DWAI — DWAI is usually (but not always) charged when a blood or breathalyzer test indicates that a driver's blood-alcohol content (BAC) was between .06 and .08 percent.
  • DWAI Drugs — If your ability to drive is impaired by any of the controlled substances listed under New York's Public Health Law — you can be charged and convicted for DWAI. This is true even if the drug you were found to be impaired by was a legal drug your doctor prescribed for you.
  • DWAI Alcohol/Drugs — If an officer suspects that your ability to drive has been impaired by any combination of alcohol and drugs — you will likely be charged with this offense.

We know how to effectively challenge blood tests, breathalyzer tests and officer testimony . We have also helped many clients originally charged with DWI to avoid more serious consequences by getting their offenses reduced to the DWAI level.
