When out-of-state drivers get DWIs in New York

When out-of-state drivers are charged with DWIs in New York, they may face consequences in both New York as well as in their home states. Similarly, New Yorkers who are charged with DWIs in other states may face consequences in the states where they were charged with the DWIs as well as in New York.

If you are facing a DWI charge in New York and you are from a different state, you may have to pay penalties in both New York and in your home state. You may lose your privileges to drive in both your state and in New York and have to go through the classes and do the other necessary things that are required in both states in order to get your driver's license back.

The collateral consequences of being convicted of a DWI are severe and may have a large impact on your life. You may want to fight your DWI charge in an effort to get a reduced charge. You may also want to fight the loss of your driving privileges through administrative proceedings that are held separately from your criminal case.

At our law firm, we understand what is at stake for our out-of-state clients who are charged with DWIs in New York as well as for our New York clients who are facing DWI charges in other states. We work to build the strongest possible defense cases possible so that we are better-positioned to secure favorable pleas with reduced consequences. In addition to our clients' criminal cases, we also fight for their driving privileges through administrative hearings with the state. If you are facing a DWI charge in New York as an out-of-state driver, you may want to review the information that we have gathered on our page on the topic.
