I have been convicted of dwi refusal and sentenced to a conditional discharge. The form which outlines the conditions of my discharge does not specifically mention travel restrictions but does state "follow the instructions of probation department...
You are very confused about what you have done in court and what you have been convicted of. There is no such crime as a "DWI refusal." The best thing for you to do would be to call the lawyer that represented you and have him explain everything to you, or hire a lawyer to pull the court records and explain everything to you in plain English.See question
My friend was arrested for driving while intoxicated and blew a 0.09 at the precinct a little over a week ago. He was released the next day as it was his first offense. He was driving a friends car however and it is impounded in Nassau County. He ...
If he loses the car and / or incurs legal expenses to get it back the drunk driver "friend" is on the hook to the owner of the car in a private cause of action for the value of the car plus legal expenses. He is also liable for rental car expenses - essentially all losses to the owner of the car due to getting it seized for getting himself locked up for being DWI. Tell your friend to not let the guy that did this to him off the hook. This is why I never loan anyone my car.See question
I got a DWI. My ticket says I'm to appear in court at 4:00 A.M. which is wrong. Can I get the charge thrown out because of this?
My friend, you are in a whole heap of trouble. DWI is a serious thing. The last thing you should be thinking about is trying to play lawyer with a ministerial error on your ticket. Try to play that game and see how badly you get slammed by the court. Rather, you should be seeking to consult with experienced counsel about your case, the facts, your side of the story, your criminal history, the budget you have to expend on legal services, the outcome you are seeking, and the best way to mitigate the problems you have caused for yourself. You should speak to several lawyers and not seek to compare on pricing, but seek to compare on value. You need to retain a lawyer that fully trust. Lawyers have many cases to get it right, however you only have one. Triangulating your mind to what is important and what is not important on this stage of the game will go far in you not blowing your case by thinking that there is some sort of technicality you can find and then advocate for yourself and get dismissed. Good luck.See question
My father passed away due to the impact of the accident. The driver was TLC cab driver who has a suspended license. I would like to sue him, his insurance as well as the company he works for. Please can anyone guide me or help me in this situation.
So sorry for your loss. I am also a former police officer. In auto accident cases often both skills are needed to build and prosecute the case and recover damages. Whomever will be the executor or administrator of the estate will hire the lawyers. You and your family should interview several lawyers and firms, and go with one that you are comfortable with and trust. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.See question
Just 3 weeks before court I received a letter stated what my "Traffic Ticket got dismissed. No further actions is required". Is that a good thing ? Why this ticket got dismissed without any actions from my side ?
Dismissal always works! Who cares why just go with it!See question
I was "convicted" of a DWI in 1994 in absentia and I question the process because I was not at the sentencing and never informed of the outcome. I only learned of the conviction a few months ago via a self initiated records review. I called the co...
The new regulations for restoring driving privileges after DWI convictions are a complex matrix since they have been revised since 2012. Ever since the new regulations went into place I have been representing people in restoring driving privileges. To be honest, sometimes my clients prevail and sometimes they don't. Whatever the case, I cannot give you any more information without seeing the document you received from the DMV which indicates they are revoking your driving privileges. What I can say, however, is that you do have rights and if you do not exercise them within the time frame allowed you lose them. So if you are going to take a next step do it soon!See question
I received a speeding ticket of 51mph on a 30mph. Is there any way I can get it reduced? Will it affect my insurance? I got my license in May 2015. The date of the offense was September 2015.
George Conway could not be more spot on in his assessment. Our office can go to court for you and we are the only NY law firm to give a written money back guarantee to reduced or eliminate the points. By doing that and plea bargaining you guilty to the right infraction, we will avoid the insurance increase and license suspension.See question
A cop came behind, overtook and pulled over me and another car at the same time. It was a 65mph zone and he told me I was going at 92mph. Later when we gave me the ticket it says 95mph (not sure if it makes a difference between 92 vs 95). This cit...
You can retain counsel and your lawyer will go to court for you. Absolutely worth fighting, because the likely total fines and surcharges are $693.00, plus a huge insurance increase. Clients that go with our office also get the benefit of a money back guarantee, so they have nothing at all to lose and everything to gain. However, this is not Florida there is no "Ticket Clinic" in NY. You can't expect to pay a fee of $69.00. Nonetheless, it will save you thousands by using an attorney.See question
I haven't driven in close to 15yrs. I was in a bad situation and made irresponsible choices. I paid for an abstract license to see how I could try and start fixing my license but I'm totally perplexed and need advice. My job unfortunately doesn't ...
I am a NY speeding and traffic ticket lawyer, and also provide the consultative service you need here in NY. I pull the abstract, contact the courts and / or call the units of the DMV, find out what the underlying charges or revocations or suspensions are all about, and then get my clients a resolution strategy and specific information on exactly what they need to do to clear each suspension or revocation. In NY there are 110 reasons why a license could be suspended or revoked, so there are up to 110 ways to clear said suspensions. Not a week goes by here in NY that I do not get 2 to 4 persons back on the road. I charge for this consultative service a flat fee of $500.00. I am sure that if you approach a NJ speeding and traffic ticket defense lawyer willing to spend around $500.00, they too will undertake to get the specific information as to why you are suspended and how to get the suspensions lifted and get you back on the road.See question

This is what happens when you fail to value the services of an attorney who could have prevented you from having a criminal record. This conviction will effect you for the rest of your life, and it's likely too late to do anything about it. I highly recommend that you sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney and purchase a consultation to see what a lawyer can do in order to reverse the conviction.See question
