Q. Can I Represent Myself on a DWI Charge?

A.  An old legal maxim says, “An attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.” People sometimes ask me if they can just defend themselves from a DWI charge, rather than spending the money to hire an attorney, and my answer is an unequivocal, “No!” An attorney is familiar with the rules of evidence, the court in which your case will be heard, the district attorney's office and their policies with regard to your particular case. You may not be aware of the many available defenses, but an attorney who regularly practices DWI defense will be. He or she can help you achieve the best possible outcome.


Q. What are the Consequences of Driving with a Suspended License?

A. Aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle is a criminal offense in the state of New York, and it does not matter whether your license is suspended for a DWI, failure to pay traffic citations, or failure to appear in court. If your license has been suspended, you'll be charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, but an attorney can help you resolve that case in a number of ways. The first and most important of those is available to you if you can obtain a valid driver's license
