Get A Serious Offense To Make A Serious Defense Against DWIs
Make no mistake: DWI charges are treated seriously by prosecutors who understand the harm caused by drunk drivers and who are more than happy to use you as an example of what happens when people get behind the wheel after one too many drinks. This is not an ordeal you can, should or need to face alone.
I am James Tyner of The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC. I have more than 15 years of experience representing individuals in drunk driving cases, I have a track record of success, and I understand what is at stake for every client. I will work tirelessly to obtain the best possible outcome for every DWI client I have the privilege to represent.
Understanding Your DWI Charges
Albany and New York State laws against driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are strict and complex. One of the many important reasons to contact my legal team is to make certain you understand the charge against you and the consequences it carries.
You may recently have been arrested and charged with:
- A misdemeanor DWI (driving while intoxicated) — for blood alcohol content (BAC) between .08 and .17 percent
- Driving while ability impaired (DWAI) – driving with a BAC of .05 to .07 or while impaired by a combination of drugs and alcohol
- Aggravated DWI, if tests showed you had a blood alcohol content over .18 percent, or felony DWI, if you had a prior, similar offense in the past 10 years
- Vehicular assault or homicide, if you were involved in an accident causing injuries or a fatality
The presence of illegal or prescription drugs in your system can also result in any of these charges. I will provide straightforward information and informed counsel regardless of which charge you face.
Of these charges — all serious in many respects — those with the least extreme consequences are DWAI and misdemeanor DWI. In fact, there is sometimes an opportunity to negotiate with prosecutors for a reduction of a misdemeanor DWI to the lesser offense of DWAI, which is not a criminal conviction.
Fighting For Your Rights Around The Clock
DWI arrests don’t keep business hours and neither do I. When you are facing DWI charges, you will have lots of questions and concerns. Those questions may keep you up at night and when they do, I will be there to provide you answers, reassurance and peace of mind. I am available to return calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
I know DWI law, but just as important, I know how prosecutors work and how to counter the tactics they use to obtain drunk driving convictions. Contact The Law Office of James E. Tyner today to schedule a free, confidential initial consultation by calling 518-783-3800 or email me directly. Together, we can fight for your future, keep you out of jail and keep you on the road.
