Protecting Your CDL
In New York, you can lose your CDL for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving while ability impaired (DWAI). The lesser offense of DWAI can be charged when the driver has a .06 blood alcohol level, which can result from only two beers. Any drunk driving charge will stay on your record for years.
DWI attorney Seth Katz will help you understand your options, and devise a legal strategy that aims to protect your rights and your CDL. Depending on your specific circumstances, he may be able to negotiate the DWAI down to a non alcohol-related offense or, in the best case scenario, have your charges dismissed.
