03 Apr Defending Yourself Against DWI Charges in Brooklyn

If you’ve been charged with driving while intoxicated on Brooklyn’s roadways, you have a lot on your mind. You’re probably wondering how you’re going to cope with the aftermath.

“Will this affect my job?”

“Will I be lose my driver’s license?”

“Am I going to jail?”

These are all valid questions, and it’s tough to find straight answers on the Internet or by talking to well-meaning friends.

So what should you do? Should you represent yourself?

Defending Yourself Against DWI Charges in Brooklyn

Most people find that it’s best to work with a DWI lawyer who understands the Brooklyn and New York court systems.


Because when you go to court, you’ll be facing people who prosecute DWIs for a living. You’ll be facing a judge, who may have also been a prosecutor at one time, and the judge has one job: to mete out justice. If he or she interprets the prosecutor’s argument as more compelling than yours, you’re going to have to face the consequences—and you won’t even have anyone there to fight on your behalf.

If you have received a DWI in the past, it’s almost certainly in your best interest to hire an attorney. Likewise, you’ll probably need a lawyer if you were arrested for DWI after a crash or after someone was injured. If you’re a professional driver, you could face losing your job; in that case, you probably need a lawyer as well.

Whether you were arrested with a blood alcohol concentration of a few points over the legal limit or yours was much higher, hiring a lawyer might be the only way to get the best possible outcome in your case.

Your lawyer will explain your rights (and protect them), as well as help you understand the consequences you are facing so you can make the best decisions for your future.
