When is a DWI more than just 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!" *****

“Amazing lawyer”

"He is a very professional and well organized individual that will work with you not against you in any situation, and does his best to defend you and your rights in court. I would highly recommend P. Adam Militello for anyone in need of his services he provides." *****

“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. I'm a healthcare professional and a misdemeanor would have affected my career. He is honest, a good listener, very funny and keeps you updated in regards to your case. He contacts you in reasonable time and works hard on your case. He doesn't mind when you call asking a lot of questions. Also, he is very affordable and will work with. Forget the rest, hire best. Adam is the best." *****

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 more than one case 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.
