Helping Rochester motorists fight a DWI charge

During the summer months, individuals in New York and elsewhere are likely to spend his or her weekends and evening out and about, enjoying the fun summer events or just the nice weather. With this, many individuals are also likely to consume alcohol during these outings. While this can be a perfectly legal and safe activity to partake in, when a person consumes more than the legal limit and gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, this could mean serious repercussions.

While a motorist is getting pulled over by law enforcement for the suspicion of driving while intoxicated, a DWI charge is far different from any other traffic violation a person in New York could face. To begin, a first conviction of a DWI is a misdemeanor; however, repeat offenders face felony charges. Because of this, those accused of such a charge should take the time to understand their defense options and ways to reduce or avoid penalties.

At the Law Office of James L. Riotto, our experienced legal team takes the time to explain the matter to our clients in the Rochester area. It is our goal to have our clients well informed so we can take all necessary steps to move forward with the strongest criminal defense available. Whether that means challenging evidence, asserting an unlawful stop or even questioning the way a field sobriety test or breath test was conducted, our attorneys ensure they are asserting the best defense possible.

Because a conviction could mean a driver’s license suspension, fines and even jail time, it is important to take these matters seriously. By understanding your rights and options, you are putting yourself at an advantage when challenging a DWI.
