Q. Should I Hire an Attorney for a DWI?

A.  In New York State, the offender's license will be revoked for a period of six months to one year. In addition to financial consequences – including fines of $500 to $1,000 and additional surcharges, you will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in any vehicle you own or operate. This device requires you to submit a breath sample before your vehicle will operate. You can also be placed on probation for a period of up to three years and serve up to one year in jail.


Q. What are the Penalties for a Cell Phone Violation?

A. Drivers in New York State face some of the country's strictest penalties with regard to talking on a cell phone or utilizing a mobile device for texting and/or getting directions. Conviction of either one of those charges is a five-point offense – the same number of points faced by an individual who passes a school bus or is convicted of reckless driving. As a matter of perspective, remember accumulating only 11 points within 18 months will cause your driver's license to be suspended.
