Manhattan is a mecca for bars, restaurants and clubs. However, even a couple drinks with dinner in Greenwich Village or with friends on the Upper West Side can result in serious penalties. You could face charges for driving while intoxicated (DWI) if your blood alcohol content is more than .08. Even with a lower BAC, you could face charges for driving while ability impaired (DWAI).
If you have been arrested for DWAI or DWI in Manhattan, it is important that you seek advice and representation from an attorney as soon as possible after your arrest. After an arrest for DWI, you have a limited amount of time to appeal the suspension of your license. An experienced Manhattan drunk driving defense attorney can help you protect your license and fight conviction for DWI.
