Information on DWI

Driving While Intoxicated Charges in Long Island

DWI or driving while intoxicated, is a very serious charge that can be imposed on a motor vehicle driver who has at or above the New York state legal BAC, or blood alcohol level, of .08. Anyone under the age of 18 who is caught driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol is subject to a zero tolerance policy which dictates that a minor's BAC must not exceed .02. DWI cases are aggressively pursued by prosecutors throughout New York State and the Long Island area, and it is critical to have the skilled expertise of a Long Island DWI attorney who can provide confident representation against DWI charges.

Motor vehicle drivers in New York are required to submit to alcohol testing at the request of a law enforcement officer by urine sample, blood test or breathalyzer test, which is the most commonly administered method. Those convicted of DWI can face a range of penalties in the form of jail time, fines, license suspensions, interlock ignition devices and others. The severity of these penalties can increase greatly in cases of severe intoxication, accidents, damages and injuries caused, and multiple DWI convictions, to name a few. Our firm aggressively defends against DWI penalties including for those who have multiple DWI convictions, young people facing underage DWI charges, as well as felony DWI offenses such as DWI with injury, vehicular manslaughter or others. We also represent clients who are facing a first time DWI, need representation at DMV hearings or are seeking help with drivers' license restoration.

We have extensive experience in challenging breath & blood tests, field sobriety tests, sobriety checkpoints and your legal rights, and BAC evidence as well as the procedures used by law enforcement in DWI arrests.

Jacoby & Jacoby have over 50 years of combined experience defending the rights of those who have been charged with a wide variety of crimes including DWI. Our firm has a deep understanding of blood alcohol testing which can be the only evidence of the crime in many cases. We may be able to get certain tests thrown out based on a number of different questionable issues that may arise. We will fight hard to provide a strong defense that will speak to your innocence, and our winning strategies may result in a dismissed charge, reduced charge or an acquittal.
