Representing Clients in the Dutchess County Courts

Defending Clients Against Traffic and DWI Charges

Drunk driving arrests and traffic tickets can carry significant penalties, and the area or region of the country where you are pulled over can have a major impact on your chances for achieving a favorable plea bargain.

In Dutchess County, New York, the prosecutors have blood alcohol thresholds and other thresholds beyond which they will not consider a plea bargain. If you have been arrested for drunk driving or another traffic violation in Dutchess County, you need to mount an immediate and strategic defense to successfully defeat your charges or reduce the penalties in your case.

Poughkeepsie Drunk Driving Accidents and Arrests Attorney

Dutchess County presents some unusual conditions for DWI and traffic defendants. In Poughkeepsie, the state police, who normally focus on rural areas, patrol the city streets at night. In Beacon, the tickets are prosecuted by individual police officers rather than mocal prosecutors. Whether you were arrested by the state police or the local police, and whether your case is being prosecuted by a county prosecutor, mocal prosecutor or individual police officer, we can carefully guide you through the process with the goal of avoiding or reducing serious penalties.
