DEDICATED DEFENSE AGAINST ALL DWI CHARGES
Regardless of your age, occupation or where you live, a drunk driving conviction will alter your life. In addition to the loss of your license, fines and potential jail time, you could also be dealing with increased insurance premiums and motor vehicle surcharges. If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated, you will have to install and maintain an ignition interlock device. That is only one reason why getting experienced legal help is so important.
I am Glenn R. Bruno, Esq., a Poughkeepsie DWI defense attorney with more than 20 years of experience. I will clearly explain all of your options, as well as the possible consequences, of your drunk driving charges. You can rely on me to provide straightforward, practical advice and skilled defense. Call 845-454-2385 or, if you prefer, you can send me an e-mail to schedule an in-office or telephone consultation.
YOU’VE BEEN ARRESTED FOR DWI: WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?
Following a drunk driving arrest, you have two choices: go to trial or negotiate a plea offer and accept it. You can try to limit the potential consequences by negotiating a plea bargain, or you can fight the charges at trial. If you choose to take a plea bargain, I can negotiate on your behalf to help you reach the best available resolution. If you decide to go to trial, I will help you build a strong defense. I will thoroughly explain all of the available options so you are able to make an informed decision.
I will work hard to minimize the potential consequences in all drunk driving cases, including those involving:
- Aggravated DWI
- DWI for minors
- DWI/DUI repeat offenders
- DWI for out-of-state drivers
- DWI/DUI for professionals
- Felony DWI
- Breathalyzer refusal
- College student DWI
The penalties associated with DWI, DUI, DWAI and aggravated DWI can add up quickly and follow you for the rest of your life. I will work hard on saving your driver’s license and helping you avoid having a mark on your criminal record.
DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS
Driving while ability impaired (DWAI) by drugs carries similar penalties to a DWI. However, with a DWAI drug conviction, you are not required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.
WILL YOU BE ABLE TO DRIVE AT ALL?
If you are charged with drunk driving and the proper evidence is presented to the court at your arraignment, then the court will suspend your license while the prosecution is pending. It may be possible to get a hardship driving privilege that will allow you to drive in a very limited capacity while the prosecution is pending. I can help show the court why a hardship privilege is necessary for your situation.
