A former client of the Westchester County, White Plains law firm of
Riebling, Proto & Sachs, LLP avoided an arrest for a
DWI charge in
Putnam County, New York by carrying our business card in his wallet and calling the law firm.
One of our former clients had just been pulled over for suspicion of DWI
and was being held at the local police station in Putnam County. While
at the police station the former client called our law office in White
Plains with this emergency situation. Our quick thinking office staff
immediately forwarded the call to our DWI lawyer who was out traveling
to court. Our DWI lawyer took the call on the road, spoke with the former
client and State Police Troopers.
The former client had been pulled over for a minor traffic infraction and
the State Police were suspicious of a possible DWI. Luckily for the former
DWI lawyers were able to explain important information to the trooper such as client's
speech was not slurred but actually was just a small lisp. Our DWI lawyer
also discussed other aspects of the investigation. The main issue was
that our former client was scared to take a
Breathalyzer test as the client feared a false positive result. The client had prior
DWI's and did not want to be arrested again.
From our DWI attorney's car, the attorney and client spoke about the
investigation and what exactly happened. The goal was to determine if
it was a good idea to take the Breathalyzer test or to refuse the test.
After the conversation it was determined the client should take the test.
The BAC result was below the level for a DWI charge and below the level
for the lesser impaired charge.
The former client was immediately released with a simple traffic infraction
and our DWI attorney proceeded to court.
