Defending a DWI Arrest in Westchester County, NY

Upon a DWI arrest in Westchester County, New York many motorists feel that law enforcement and the prosecution have the upper, making a DWI defense impossible. That is not the case. Many DWI cases are defensible, but that can only be determined after a review of the statutory discovery, including an independent investigation, by an experienced DWI defense attorney.

Any number of DWI defenses can be used to weaken the prosecution’s case and get the DWI charges dismissed outright or reduced to a lesser charge.

What Are the Best DWI Defenses?

  • The police violated a departmental procedure during the arrest or investigation
  • No probable cause to stop the vehicle or the vehicle stop was made only to investigate a possible DWI
  • Improper interrogation, Miranda rights violation
  • Illegally obtained evidence during the DWI investigation
  • Witness statements in favor of the motorist
  • Medical conditions of the motorist
  • Improper DWI and refusal warnings
  • Inadequate or improper field sobriety tests (FST)
  • Failure to calibrate or maintain a breathalyzer machine
  • Body camera or dash camera evidence
