Practice Areas : DWI Defense

The Law Office Of Darin B. Wizenberg is experienced in representing individuals charged with drunk driving, which includes driving while intoxicated (DWI), driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while impaired (DWAI).


In New York, it is illegal for any driver to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above 0.08%. If you are found to be driving with a BAC at or above the legal level, you will be charged with DWI. If you are found to be driving with a BAC of 0.06% to 0.07%, or driving while your ability is "impaired" by the use of a drug or alcohol, you will be charged with the lesser offense of DWAI. New York also has a "Zero Tolerance Law", where it is a crime to be operating a motor vehicle if the motorist is under 21 years old and possesses a BAC of 0.02% to 0.07%.


If you are charged with DWI or DWAI, it is critical that you retain the services of an experienced DWI defense attorney as soon as possible. The charges you are facing are highly complex and carry very heavy consequences. Such include the loss of your driver's license, vehicle impoundment, probation, jail, a permanent record. There are also other ramifications that flow from a DWI conviction. You could lose your job, be prevented from securing other types of employment, be required to perform community service or attend substance abuse treatment programs. If you have a commercial driver's license, you could lose your privilege to drive commercially for at least a year.


Don't risk losing your rights. You need an experienced DWI defense attorney that can guide you through the complex legal system and aggressively fight to protect your rights. Whether a case involves an alleged "refusal" to submit to a chemical (blood or breath) test or a videotape portraying you in an unfavorable light, we consistently prevail through utilization of the latest in science and the law.
