DWI Lawyer

Tough, Aggressive New York DWI Attorney

Defending Western New York clients charged with drunk driving offenses

Being convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated has serious consequences, including, among other things, loss of your driver's license, higher insurance costs, substantial fines and court costs, probation and jail time. If you are arrested for a DWI offense, contact an attorney immediately - New York law imposes strict deadlines for filing crucial documents with the court. With over 31 years of experience, Criminal Defense Attorney Michael Anthony Rossi at the Rossi Law Firm has the knowledge necessary to overcome the evidence against you and the ability to help you attain the best possible outcome.

Challenging the Breathalyzer?

If you have consented to the Breathalyzer test, the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) results are crucial to the prosecution's case against you. You must overcome the presumption of impairment that the BAC results create. In New York, you are presumed impaired if the Breathalyzer registers a BAC at or above .08. A BAC of .18 or higher increases the severity of the penalties that may be imposed upon you.  Challenging the presumption of impairment requires extensive technical and legal knowledge. Michael consults with experts who persuasively counter the state's evidence.  Through his extensive experience, he knows the best approach to challenge the test. Michael is prepared to attack the:

  • Accuracy of the results
  • Validity of the machine's calibration
  • Competence of the technicians administering the test
  • Legality of the Breathalyzer test

DMV hearing

Your driver's license may be automatically suspended regardless of the outcome of your DWI case. You must act quickly to challenge the suspension of your driving privileges at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hearing. The Rossi Law Firm immediately takes the steps necessary to defend your right to continue driving while your DWI case is resolved in criminal court.

Aggravating DUI factors

The circumstances surrounding your DWI charge can determine how aggressively the prosecution pursues your case and whether you face penalty enhancements. Michael thoroughly attacks each element of your case and seeks to minimize the effect of such serious issues as:

  • Previous convictions for DWI
  • BAC of .18 or higher
  • A minor in the vehicle
  • DWI involving an accident with property damage
  • DWI involving an accident with serious bodily injuries
  • DWI manslaughter
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
