Charges that accompany a DWI

“I have your back”

"Hiring Adam was the best decision after I was charged with 4 tickets for a DWI. It took Adam just one court appearance to convert all the tickets into a minor DWAI with minimum charges. He always made sure I was relaxed and he would take care of me like a younger brother. I've no words to thank him for what he has done for me!" *****


"Adam and Gabriella are amazing. They handled everything professionally, efficiently and quickly. They both showed a clear understanding of my situation and expertise in their practice. I would highly recommend the Militello Law Firm." *****

“Mr. Militello is the BEST!”

"Adam is an AWESOME attorney! I never been in trouble with the law and after getting pulled over on the holiday was charged with a DWI. I was scared and terrified. Adam told me, I would be okay and he would fight for me. Which he did. He got my misdemeanor charge down to a traffic infraction of a DWAI. Which is a non criminal charge. I am very thankful and blessed." *****

DWI charges rarely come alone. In the least serious cases, they are likely to come bundled with traffic tickets. In the worst cases, they can come with Vehicular Manslaughter charges, carrying sentences of up to 15 years or longer (for persistent felony offenders). In any DWI case it is absolutely imperative that your attorney pick apart the underlying DWI case.

In Ontario County I have seen multiple cases where a client was charged with DWAI Drugs because there was a trace amount of THC in their system. In other words, if you smoked marijuana on Wednesday, you won't be high or even remotely under the influence by Friday, but the District Attorney's Office uses the presence of THC in your blood to add on charges, thereby increasing the potential penalties, thereby increasing the likelihood that you will take a plea bargain.
