DWI cases involve some of the most detailed factual scenarios and challenging legal issues a criminal defense case can offer.
From understanding the intricacies of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, the legal basis for probable cause to stop and search a motor vehicle, and knowing how and when expert testimony can and should use, every case requires a critical review of precisely what the Government claims happened.
Losing your driver’s license could result in relinquishing your job because you can’t get to work. If you face charges with a DWI, you need a DWI attorney experienced in the statutes surrounding these crimes in Saratoga Springs, NY.
It would be best if you had solid legal representation and an experienced criminal defense attorney in Saratoga County who will protect your rights.
DWI/DUI cases are also unique in that the Government can take your driving privileges away from you before conviction in certain circumstances for some time. If not handled properly, this and other related issues can cause defendants to lose their jobs or be unable to transport their children and carry on the necessary life tasks.
