Niagara Falls Drunk Driving Defense Attorney Taking On All Types Of Charges

At the Law Office of John J. Carney, we handle driving while intoxicated charges (DWI), aggravated unauthorized operation charges (AUO) and related traffic offenses. Our Buffalo DWI/DUI lawyers offer information and professional legal services in relation to commercial driver's license DWI, excessive speeding, hit and run, reckless driving, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and vehicular manslaughter. Our understanding of field sobriety tests, breath tests, urine tests and the many other issues involved with DWI cases enables us to secure better results for our clients than lawyers who do not focus on such matters.

New York has some of the most severe DWI/DUI laws in the United States. A second DWI/DUI offense within 10 years will be charged as a felony. If you are accused of DWI with a child 15 years or younger in your vehicle or your BAC is over .18, you will be charged with a felony. A felony conviction can make it very difficult to get employment or government benefits, and can result in probation, excessive fines and even incarceration.

A lawyer who focuses on DWI cases may be able to show that the officer did not have probable cause to stop you or that the search was illegal, resulting in a dismissal of all charges. An experienced DWI lawyer may also be able to plea bargain down to a DWAI violation, which is a traffic offense, so that you will not have a criminal record. In most cases, we will be able to get you a conditional license so you can continue to drive after your license has been suspended.
