Ring of Fire DWI?
Every year on July 3rd, there is a "Ring of Fire" held at Conesus Lake. People at cottages all around the lake light flares, and it's a great way to kick off the Fourth of July weekend. The unfortunate reality is that the Ring of Fire draws thousands of spectators, many of whom may not realize how much they had been drinking over the course of the day. The influx of people also means an increased police presence, and it inevitably leads to DWI arrests as people leave to go home.
If you are arrested for DWI, I suggest that you ALWAYS find a well-known, well-respected, local lawyer to handle your case. Local attorneys will be familiar with the local courts, they will know the prosecutors, and they will have a different relationship with the people involved than, say, an attorney who works in Syracuse but advertises services in Rochester and then contracts out work in Livingston County. Experienced local attorneys offer the same (or better) results, and you may be surprised by the difference in fees. (After all, somebody has to pay for the barrage of radio advertising you hear every day.)
If you have been stopped for DWI after the Ring of Fire, remember that you have the right to remain silent, and you should invoke that right by asking for an attorney. Then call us at (585) 485-0025 for a free consultation. We want to help you.
