Defending Accused Second- and Third-Time DUI Offenders
Some of our DUI defense clients at Peter D. Clark, Attorney at Law over the years have been people with drinking problems. The abuse of alcohol is a health problem and a social problem for them — and their underlying dependence on it has landed them in the hands of the police more than once. Multiple DUI cases have accumulated on their record and they must fight to protect their freedom as well as to address and hopefully conquer their alcohol dependence.
Defending Accused First-Time Offenders
Many other DUI defense clients of our law firm were taken by surprise by a one-time event, such as a traffic stop following a wedding or social gathering where alcohol was served — or they were taking prescription medications that had unwanted side effects. Some of these clients have been good students, homemakers, small-business owners and respected professionals with high social standing. They never expected to encounter problems with law enforcement, and they were terribly embarrassed and ashamed to have been arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Whether you fall in the category of an accused repeat offender or a first-time offender, our Fredonia DWI lawyers are prepared to offer effective legal counsel aimed at protecting your freedom and your future. Did police stop you in traffic without probable cause? Were field sobriety tests and/or Breathalyzer testing administered correctly? Is there any evidence that blood alcohol level testing was invalid? Answers to questions such as these may provide the foundation for an effective defense after your New York DUI/DWI arrest.
