You have options after a vehicular assault charge

Vehicular assault charges are extremely serious and can result in significant penalties and jail time. However, not all individuals responsible for these accidents are criminals. When prosecutors use terms like reckless and negligent to describe those who are responsible, it paints an inaccurate picture of an individual's character. While this tactic may work on some, for individuals that have a strong, experienced defense attorney by their side, it won't.

Criminal defense attorneys are no strangers to the devastating effects of police corruption. Even a slight misuse of power can turn a simple misdemeanor into a life-altering felony. While the NYPD is often shown in a negative light in popular media, it is important for New Yorkers to remember that some of those stories have a basis in reality.

What are the most common defenses to DUI?

By working with an experienced DUI defense attorney, individuals facing a DUI can choose which defense is best for their situation.

Most adults are aware of how alcohol affects them.  They may be able to easily identify when they've had too much to drink and it's necessary to call a designated driver. And while this practice is a great way to avoid a DUI when going home, it does little to help avoid one the next day. Despite what we may believe, a good night's sleep does not cure all. Individuals have been known to receive a DUI the morning after drinking. Sleeping it off may help us feel sober, but unfortunately, may not accurately represent how sober we really are.
