My law firm is dedicated to defending the rights of individuals accused of crimes and traffic offenses. I am particularly focused on defending people charged with driving while intoxicated.
In our present political environment, people charged with drunk driving are treated more harshly, and with less fairness, than those accused of far more serious crimes. The reason for this is accused drunk drivers have no political constituency, while MADD and related organizations wield enormous political influence. Being seen as “tough” on drunk driving is simply good politics, while being portrayed as “soft” on DWI and other crimes is a sure way for an elected official to become an ex-elected official.
If you are faced with a DWI charge, you need someone who is going to fight diligently and effectively for your rights. As a DWI defense lawyer, this is what I strive to do each day in my practice. DWI litigation is a science based practice. To be effective, it is essential to remain current on the law and on the science of breath and blood testing and the Field Sobriety Test protocol. It is simply not possible to effectively represent people who are charged with DWI if most of your experience is in drafting wills and handling closings.
To provide my clients with a strong and cost effective defense, I devote my professional energies to studying the legal and scientific issues involved with the defense of DWI cases. I read professional journals and treatises and attend numerous continuing legal education seminars focused on DWI and criminal defense. In addition, I am a member of the most important criminal defense organizations, including the National and New York State Associations of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The National College of DUI Defense, The New York State Defenders Association, the New York State Bar Association and the New York County Lawyers' Association.
Since I am a solo practitioner, if you retain my law firm to defend you against a criminal charge, it will be me who represents you. I am not a “Law Group” and there are no associates. My professional reputation is on the line every time I take on a new case and I care very deeply about achieving the best possible result for all of my clients. I do not promise miracles, but I do promise to fight my hardest for all of my clients and to treat anyone who puts their trust in me with consideration and respect.
