What is the Best DWI Defense in Southeast?
Step 1 – Write Everything Down
DWI cases are won or lost with each specific factual detail unique to the case. It is recommended that you write down everything you can remember, no matter how insignificant. These notes are essential to the defense. Memory can fade over time and important details can be lost. The best DWI defense lawyers want to know all the details of your case when formulating a DWI defense strategy.
Lastly, do not share your notes with anyone other than your DWI attorney.
Step 2 – Go to Court Prepared
A common mistake is that an accused will appear in the Southeast Court to “see what happens” not knowing the first court appearance, the arraignment, is one of the most important days of the case.
In New York State if your BAC is over a .08 your driver’s license will be suspended at arraignment. If you refused a chemical test your driver’s license will be suspended at arraignment. The Court will decide important issues such as discovery, speedy trial, mandatory treatment and possibly set bail. Importantly, anything you say in Court, against your interest, will be used against you as an admission of guilt.
Our DWI defense attorneys will prepare you for the arraignment and every court appearance after that to be sure there are no surprises, you know what to expect and your rights are protected.
