Affordable Queens DWI Lawyer

Former DWI prosecutor is the only drunk driving attorney call that you NEED to make.

Jonathan Kaye is a Queens DWI lawyer/ DUI lawyer that has been practicing law in the New York area for over 30 years. Being a former NY Assistant District Attorney and now a private attorney, he thoroughly knows what goes into building a case from both sides.  Now Mr. Kaye uses his complete understanding of DWI law sometimes referred as DUI to defend his clients in the best way he knows how. That entails going over every detail of the case including the client’s perspective and the arresting officer’s. These details include:

  • Getting a written account from the client, detailing everything that happened the night of the arrest, starting with the first drink and ending with the last contact made with the arresting officer.
  • Analyzing the criminal complaint of the arresting officer.
  • Determine if any search and seizure issues exist.
  • If you were stopped for a traffic or equipment violation, was the stop warranted?
  • Was a field sobriety test given or refused? Depending on the answer and details, there could be a defense.
  • Did you admit to the officer that you had a drink?
  • Was a breath test given, if so, what was the blood alcohol level and were proper procedures followed?
  • How many DWI’s have you had?
  • What was your BAC level?
  • All options will be on the table including a pretrial mitigation plan. A pretrial mitigation plan can be successful for first time offenders who are just over the BAC limit. For this to be successful clients must be realistic about their situation. Character reference letters, work history etc. can help.
  • While most clients don’t like to think of a conviction, it is our job to have a plan in case there is one. Post-conviction options include work release, limited driving, weekend jail time and home incarceration. It’s important to be prepared for the worst case scenario and have options for it as well.
