If you were involved in any type of motor vehicle accident and the police determined that you had alcohol or drugs in your system, you definitely need a defense lawyer you can trust on your side. Depending on an array of circumstances, including whether you caused serious injury, a fatality or "only" property damage, the potential for jail or prison time, major fines, long-term loss of your driving privilege and many years on probation may be very real.
Skilled Defense for People Facing Felony DWI or Vehicular Assault Charges
Attorney Seth Katz and the team at katzlawyers.com have experience handling these very serious cases in all five boroughs and statewide throughout New York. We are up to the challenge of defending your rights and future whether specific charges against you include aggravated DWI, vehicular assault, vehicular homicide, hit and run or others.
Although all cases of accidents involving DWI are serious, sometimes the charges filed and penalties sought by prosecutors are not warranted based on the facts of the case. It is essential to work with an attorney who will bring forth key facts surrounding:
- Your recorded blood alcohol content (BAC) or type and level of drug intoxication at the time of the accident, or the circumstances surrounding a DWI/DUI test refusal
- The seriousness of injuries and other direct consequences of the crash alleged to have been alcohol related
- Extenuating factors that may improve our position in negotiations or attempts to avoid maximum penalties in sentencing — such as your demonstrated remorse, efforts to get treatment for substance abuse or addiction, and ability to provide financial restitution
