I would never go this route again. If it is your first DWI save the $ and fight for yourself. Information told was incorrect. Mr. Roxin does need to become informed with DWI laws pertaining to DMV. He does not communicate well, does not get back to you in a timely manner until it is to late. Was under the impression that this firm were experts in this field but in end the impression was pay up front and then pay more for trial. It was not till I called and wrote to the Judge and the ADA begging for help that Mr. Roxin then reached out. It was a month of hell working on own to get things settled. This Senior Attorney needs to go to back to school.

I recently was charged with DWI. It was my third offense in 25 years. The last time was over 12 years ago.
I was under the impression that it was 2 in 10 years that was when the penalties really started. My Lawyer- Mr. Roxin did not know many of the questions that I asked him. He kept me hanging regarding issues such as whether I would loose my license? Whether I would get a conditional? He said it was up to Albany and up to the DMV. I was also instructed to pay my fine immediatly because it would give me a better chance for a conditional.
I was totally left uninformed , even misinformed from "the expert in DWI".
After reading on line its apparent what the new laws are- 3 in 25 - license is gone for 5 years , no conditional.
I feel I was not given proper counsel. He did not inform me as he should of. He didn't get back to me when he said he would. He doesn't return phone calls. Very disappointed in the "expertise " of this DWI lawyer. The DMV clerk was more knowledgable and helpful.

Rick communicated very well during this complicated process and through his relaxing demeanor kept me relaxed and confident that he was working in my best interest in this case. I never felt that I was not getting the attention or time needed to address this situation.

Rick was very knowledgeable and conscientious in his work. He constantly kept me informed, and was able to utilize all the right angles to help me out of a very difficult situation. I felt that he believed in me from day one, and that made all the difference.

Being charged with an aggravated DWI my primary concern was on the possible outcomes. I am happy to report that with Rick Roxin's expert legal counsel I ended up with a mere traffic violation.
At every stage of the process Rick Roxin kept me in the loop and communicated clearly. He was very honest early on that anything lower than a misdemeanor DWI was exceedingly rare in such a case. As more facts concerning the case became available and Rick saw opportunities within the legal process the traffic violation outcome became a faint possibility. Rick was flexible and in every step increased my chances of the best possible outcome. Finally after representing me at a trial I walked out with a mere traffic violation. I can not describe in words how valuable it is to me to still have a clean criminal record.
Rick Roxin is a consummate professional. All my questions were answered clearly and promptly. I highly appreciated that Rick explained the strategy to me at every step. Rick's support continued past the trial and into the period where I fulfilled the conditions that the judge had set forth. I faced some unique challenges but Rick was there and helped me find realistic solutions to all my problems.
On a personal note then Rick made me feel very comfortable when I was in a tight spot. Even when being thorough and going through the details of the case he somehow managed to make the conversations so pleasant and relaxed. Rick is the kind of a guy that anyone would love to have over for a Sunday BBQ.
When it comes to delivering results, communication and personal interactions then Rick Roxin scores the highest marks in all categories. If I ever faced similar charges again I would call Rick right away. He gets my strongest possible recommendations.

When my 20 year-old daughter was cited for a DWI we knew the stakes were high given her age and her BAC. Her BAC was too high to for the DA to plead to a lesser charge. Due to the seriousness of the charge, Rick recommended preparing for a trial. During the initial hearing in court the state patrolman gave testimony that did not match the documentation on the state's case. Rick pointed out the discrepancy and the patrol admitted there was a mix up. Rick spotted his opening and contacted the DA to request a plea to traffic violation not a crime. The DA agreed. Everyone won—my daughter learned her lesson, the DA got a conviction, the court got its fees and Rick got to use his expertise to get a great result with some challenging facts. Best of all, my daughter will never have to check that dreaded box on a job application—“Have you ever been convicted of a crime?”
Rick was great with my daughter and me throughout the whole process. He was very thorough, but gentle when he was gathering information from us on the case. No rock went unturned. He was also very reassuring to my daughter that this is just a bad situation and she’s not a bad person. His professionalism matched the high level of the personal treatment that we received—phone calls were answered or returned promptly, we were kept abreast of developments as they happened and he did a great job explaining what was happening as well as preparing us for court.
Should you have the misfortune of facing a DWI, you couldn’t have a better advocate than Rick Roxin. And yes, I would IMMEDIATELY retain Rick again should I be faced with similar circumstances in the future.

In a very difficult and stressful situation having to deal with a possible Felony DWI conviction, along with all of the other consequences that come with that, Rick was the utmost professional, well-knowledged and resourceful lawyer I could have attained. Not only was he able to guide me through this horrific process with clarity and knowledge, he was able to obtain the best possible outcome for me as well. I am very pleased with Rick's attention that he gave my case. I didn't feel like just a "client." He portrayed himself as a caring lawyer that really wanted what was best for me, yet was very realistic and straightforward throughout the entire process.

My cased was closed on very favorable terms thanks to Rick. He negotiated a plea bargain which reduced my DWI charges to a traffic violation. Thanks to him, I do not have a criminal record. As a bonus, I got to keep my driving privileges during the case. He was always helpful and approachable as well as comforting. I recommend Rick for DWI cases without any reservation.

I have never been a true believer of our legal system , nor did I trust lawyers. Until, we met Rick Roxin. It became immediately clear that he was extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, realistic and highly engaged in our case. He was a breath of fresh air. He kept it real for us and he was very responsive. In fact, he responded each & every time we needed him or had questions by returning all phone calls in a timely manner. He was professional at all times but also remained personable and kind throughout our entire ordeal. As we approached the 1 year mark and emotions were running high Rick Roxin remained diligent, precise and patient. His confidence was contagious. We believed because he believed! With the help of Rick Roxin, we not only achieved a victory but my Son received an unthinkable outcome of his court case. Our victory, my Son's victory and rightfully, Rick Roxin's victory.

Rick made me feel completely comfortable and confident in him & my case from day one, and we got the results I'd hoped for. Thanks to him I have no criminal record, and have a second chance at a brighter future! He's very professional and down to earth, and knows how to fight DWI cases from both sides, which means he knows exactly what to do. I'm very happy!!
