Multiple DWI in Hudson Valley, NY
DWI Defense Lawyers in Poughkeepsie
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is an offense that poses serious penalties
for first-time offenders – and even harsher for those who commit
subsequent offenses. If you, a loved one, or someone you know has been
charged with a multiple DWI, working with a proven attorney should be
your first priority.
Multiple DWIs – which are often felony offenses – can subject
accused drivers to aggressive prosecution and harsher penalties than misdemeanors,
including increased fines and longer terms of imprisonment. Don't
go into this fight alone.
