DWI Defenses

Opportunities to defend you against DWI charges in New York arise at different points in the legal process. At Getz & Braverman, P.C., we go to work for you right away. Our attorneys are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Taking action before your court date to minimize the charges and penalties you face is critical. We also take action to protect your driver's license or commercial driver's license with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) from day one. If you have been arrested on suspicion of DWI in New York, it is critical to contact an experienced lawyer immediately. A public defender will not help you at the DMV hearing, and you need to act fast to schedule a hearing date to protect your license.

Our law firm has been helping people in the Bronx and throughout New York City for over 45 years. Possible defenses in your DWI case include challenging:

  • The conclusions of field sobriety tests (Even the federal government recognizes that field sobriety tests are inconclusive.)
  • The police officer's probable cause to pull your vehicle over, administer field sobriety tests and the Breathalyzer test
  • The results of the Breathalyzer test (Was the device properly calibrated? Often, it is not.)
    • Something you recently ate, drank or smoked could cause an inaccurate reading of the breath test.
  • The lawfulness of your arrest and detention in other respects

Other key questions in your defense might include:

  • Were you actually driving a vehicle at the time of your arrest?
  • Did you consume alcohol or drugs unknowingly?
  • Did you consume a drug days in advance that is still in your bloodstream, but could not possibly have impaired you at the time of the DWI arrest?

Our defense strategy in your case will be comprehensive and sound. We often collaborate with industry experts and stay informed of technological developments in blood, breath and urine testing devices. Our DWI defense attorneys are aggressive and proactive in safeguarding your best interests.
