White Plains DWI
The City of White Plains has increasing road blocks and vehicle stops to
enforce the New York State DWI Laws. It is becoming more common to have a
DWI arrest in the City of White Plains or the surrounding towns of Greenburgh, Mount
Pleasant, Scarsdale, Elmsford and Rye Town or City Court. Several roads
all merge in or around White Plains and DWI enforcement is intense in
all these areas. It is common to find a check point in front of the County
Center in White Plains on Tarrytown (Rt. 119) Road and/or Mamaroneck Road
in White Plains.
The DWI Arrest
In Westchester County and the surrounding counties of Rockland, Putnam,
Dutchess, Orange and the Bronx it is very important to immediately call a top
DWI lawyer to protect your rights. An aggressive attorney will provide a consultation
and give you legal advice about the DWI process and how to protect your
driver's license. In some instances where a person is injured, a child is in the car or
multiple prior DWI arrests a DWI lawyer can be more effective contacted
early (usually within a day or two of the arrest).
The DWI Lawyer
A DWI lawyer must have a great understanding of the DWI laws and procedure.
The laws regarding DWI are always changing and the penalties are getting
more and more severe, even for the first time DWI offender. The best DWI
defense focuses on attacking the prosecutions evidence including the BAC
reading, field sobriety tests, the arrest and any violation of Miranda rights.
Andrew Proto, Esq. had the White Plains City Court suppress a client's statements that
she had been drinking prior to the arrest due to a Miranda violation and
had the same client's .22 BAC level reading suppressed. This resulted
in the charge being dismissed. The best defense is an aggressive legal
strategy to attack every part of the prosecution's case.
The Hardship Hearing
At arraignment on a DWI charge the accused's license will be suspended
pending prosecution. To keep the accused on the road the DWI lawyer needs
to make a proper showing on the first day in court to keep the accused
driving for work, medical appointments or school. Each court is different
regarding how they handle this hearing and each District Attorney's
Office has different polices. The DWI lawyer must be properly prepared
for the hearing.
The DWI Defense
During the case the DWI lawyer will have an opportunity to test the DA's
evidence and formulate a proper strategy. As DWI cases are complex and
each case is different therefore proper preparation and knowledge of the
DWI laws are essential.
The best DWI lawyers also serve as educations for their clients so they
understand the process and all of their options. A client should NEVER
walk into court not knowing what to expect.
