If you or someone you care about has ever been arrested for drunk driving or “driving while intoxicated” (DWI) in the past, you may be shocked to learn that a subsequent DWI may be a felony charge. Fairly recent changes in State laws extended the basic “look-back” period from five to 10 years. Consequently, even though a prior conviction occurred as long as 10 years ago, you may be dealing with felony DWI. Because of the repercussions these types of charges can have upon your life, it's important to seek legal help with an experienced
Albany DWI defense attorney.

I have hired James Tyner to assist me with a few speeding tickets in New York State. I paid Mr. Tyner an affordable flat rate fee and I never had to appear in Court, thus not missing any time from work or school. Mr. Tyner was able to negotiate my speeding tickets down to parking tickets and I was able to keep my license clean. I highly recommend Mr. Tyner's office. He and his staff respond quickly to emails/calls, and I was always provided updates in my cases promptly.
