The holiday season is here, and along with it comes social gatherings and happiness. New Yorkers need to be aware, though, that police patrols often increase this time of year as the authorities try to crack down on drunk driving. As we discussed in a previous post, the penalties handed out upon a drunk driving conviction can be burdensome. You might wind up facing jail time, license suspension, license revocation and mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device. These penalties, when taken together, can wreak havoc on your personal and professional lives, which is why it may be imperative for you to seek a strong criminal defense attorney when facing these types of allegations.
Regardless of the facts of your case, there are likely criminal defense options available to you. Sometimes your options might be limited to negotiating a plea deal to minimize the penalties you will face, while other circumstances may lend themselves to litigation. An experienced law firm like the Law Office of James L Riotto will know how to advise you so that you can choose a legal path that is right for you.
At our firm, we make sure we fully analyze a case before giving legal advice, We uncover all relevant evidence, speak with crucial witnesses and analyze statutory and case law to determine their applicability and their benefits.

In the end, we want to help our clients out of the binds they find themselves in. Our passion is unsurpassed and we take pride in our proven ability to reach favorable outcomes for our clients.
