White Plains DWI Attorneys

Proven Drunk Driving Defense in NYC, Westchester and the surrounding areas

Many Westchester Country residents have been accused of driving while intoxicated—a charge that, while not uncommon, may result in serious professional and personal consequences. A lot of attention has been drawn to drunk driving over the past couple of decades, and consequently, local law enforcement may especially target DWIs in an attempt to reduce drunk driving. In the same vein, prosecutors will likely seek maximum penalties for those charged—penalties that continue to be expanded by new legislation.

At Portale Randazzo LLP, we believe your life should not be defined by an accusation. A criminal charge for driving while intoxicated may feel overwhelming; fortunately, there are a variety of defenses that can be used on your behalf to reduce penalties or even seek a dismissal.

You do not have to confront the allegations against you without a proven legal advocate by your side. Contact us today to request a consultation.
