Fighting DUI/DWI Charges in New York City

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges carry heavy charges that include the possibility of jail time as well as loss of driving privileges and heavy fines. At times like these, it’s not worth it to gamble on your future and your livelihood; you need a compassionate, experienced attorney on your side. At Maryam Jahedi Law, we are hardworking and committed to a high standard of service for all our clients. We make it a point to be available to you to address any questions or concerns as quickly as possible, and strive to ensure you always feel supported and understood throughout your case.

New York has one of the toughest DWI/DUI laws in the nation. Not only are drivers with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) above .08% penalized, drivers with a BAC above .05% are also penalized. In NYC, the act of operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08% or above is a DWI, and driving with a BAC between .05% and .07% is considered to be a DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired). The state classifies driving with a BAC of .17% or more as an Aggravated DWI which is a felony.

Our DWI/DUI attorney in NYC understands just how difficult it is to face the charges by yourself. We have years of experience in defending DWI/DUI cases and can help guide and prepare you for hearings and proceedings.
