Failing A Breathalyzer Test
If you failed a breath test or blood test (known as a chemical test) and were charged with DWI in New York, your charge might not necessarily result in a conviction. With a strong and capable criminal defense attorney by your side, you can successfully fight these charges in court.
You can also significantly improve your chances of minimizing or avoiding a conviction and many of the serious consequences that come with a DWI conviction — license revocation, a criminal record, installation of an ignition interlock device and substantial fines and fees.

I will help you develop a strategy to defend against the admissibility of the test results. The defense strategy may involve challenging:
- Whether proper testing procedures were followed.
- Whether your blood alcohol may have been below the legal limit at the time you were driving, even if above the limit at the time of testing.
- Whether the police had probable cause and put you under arrest before administering the test.
- Whether the person administering the test was certified.
I will give your case personalized attention, assessing every aspect of the police stop. Through my skills and experience, I have been able to help individuals with DWI charges get their charges reduced or dismissed.
