Are you or a loved one scheduled to appear in the Tonawanda Town Court and need a DWI Attorney or Traffic Lawyer to represent you?

When choosing a DWI Lawyer or Traffic Ticket Attorney to defend you in the Tonawanda Town Court, it is important to choose a qualified attorney with experience handling these types of cases. Criminal Lawyer Drew Fritsch is a former prosecutor with over 20 years of legal experience and can use his knowledge to help you.  We offer a free one-on-one consultation to anyone seeking guidance.


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 Should I Do if I Forget to Appear in Court?

A. Among the things to remember in such a case, the first and most important is that you don't make the situation worse by delaying dealing with it. Second, don't call the court until you speak with an attorney. It is very possible that an attorney may be able to bring you before that judge on a different date and have the warrant that was probably issued in your case set aside, allowing your case to proceed.
