    New York has conditional drivers licenses available for individuals that are either suspended pending prosecution for a DWI case or for an individual that has plead guilty or found guilty of DWI. You must find out through the New York DMV if they have been notified about the out of State, New Jersey conviction. If so, then find out from the DMV what steps you will have to take to get the conditional license. Ordinarily, after a New York driver is convicted of a DWI in order to get the...

    There are several possible outcomes. One would be to try to get the case dismissed based upon whether the charges can be proven against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Perhaps you may be able to get an ACD which is an adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal. Good Luck-

    This is a very good and common question that I get quite often in that I handle a great many DWI cases in both New York and New Jersey. Since your prior case resulted in a conviction for a traffic infraction and not a crime, if your prospective employer does uncover the conviction it does not seem likely to affect your employment possibilities. However, depending on how extensive the background search is will depend on their ability to see the case. It will also depend on your prospective...

    Some courts will allow you to enter a not guilty plea in Municipal Court by attorney's letter and thereby postpone the case. This is not always the case because not all Municipal Courts are run the same way. Good luck-

    Your first order of business is to fight the summons so that you could try to prevent a violation of the conditional discharge. There may be many grounds available to you to fight the case. Perhaps the officer fails to show up in court, etc. Second, depending on the municipality you may not even be subject to a violation even if found guilty. Please consult with a local experienced attorney.

  7. Will my 21 yr old daughter, recently arrested for DWI, without a doubt have a conviction on her record the rest of her life?

    Before you assume that your daughter will be convicted, the first thing you should do is to have a consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney that handles DWI cases. A DWI conviction will remain on your daughters records not only for potential enhancements if she is ever arrested again for another DWI in New York or in many other states, but also for insurance purposes. Good Luck-

    Your question is a little hared to understand. If you have a prior driving while suspended in New Jersey you do need to restore your drivers license in order to legally drive in the state.

    It sounds like you have not resolved your case yet. First you should have a qualified attorney review and analyze your case. You may have some significant defenses to the charge and therefore should seek legal counsel. If you do wind up in a situation where you would be faced with a plea or a trial then your attorney should explain to you the "youthful offender" statutes which would resolve your case with out a criminal conviction. Good Luck-
