- Aggressive Nassau County DWI defense
There are many ways to challenge a DWI arrest in Nassau County. Lerner & Lerner will question if there was reasonable suspicion for the initial traffic stop and probable cause for an arrest, investigate whether the arresting officer properly administered a breath or blood test, look for a violation of Miranda rights, determine if the officer followed mandated policies and procedures and challenge a presumption of guilt. If the prosecuting attorney cannot prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, there is a chance your charges could be reduced or dismissed.
Loss of Driver’s License Following a DWI in Nassau County
If you failed a breath, blood or urine test during an arrest for DWI in Nassau County, your license will be suspended at arraignment. If you refused to submit to a test for blood alcohol content, the state will initiate a second case against you that seeks to administratively suspend your driver’s license. This is separate from the criminal case that is resolved in the courts. You will be given a date for a Refusal Hearing where you can challenge your license suspension and attempt to keep your driving privileges. If you do not appear at the hearing you will automatically lose your license. The length of a license suspension depends on a number of circumstances, such as the level of your BAC at the time of your arrest and any prior DWI convictions.
The Nassau County DWI lawyers with the Law Offices of Lerner & Lerner offer complete drunk driving defense, including help with your license. Because the license suspension process includes discovery and testimony, hiring legal counsel before your first court date or before a Refusal Hearing is highly recommended. It could mean saving your driving privileges. It will also give the Law Offices of Lerner & Lerner an opportunity to learn more about evidence against you and the prosecutor’s argument, leading to a better DWI defense.
