DUI and Criminal Charges in Westchester County

Westchester County has a higher threshold and tolerance for drunk driving defendants than many other counties in New York. For instance, even if you have a very high blood alcohol content, if you're a first-time offender with no accident involved in your case or other aggravated circumstances, the prosecutor may allow you plead guilty to DWAI in lieu of a misdemeanor DWI charge. This will mean fewer penalties and a less damaging record. This process is not automatic, but an experienced lawyer can help you pursue a plea bargain.

Attorney Edward McCormack has represented clients in local courts throughout Westchester County. The following are just a few of these courts:

  • Westchester County Court
  • Bedford Town Court
  • Cortlandt Town Court
  • Croton-on-Hudson Village Court
  • New Castle Town Court
  • North Castle Town Court
  • Peekskill City Court
  • White Plains City Court
  • Yorktown Town Court

We will take a hands-on approach in your case to achieve the best possible results. Understanding that a DWI or traffic charge and the ensuing penalties will have a direct impact on your personal life, professional life and future, our priority is to get you through the process with minimal consequences and defeat your charges, when possible.
