Newburgh DWI Lawyer
Whether you are facing a DWI charge for the first time or you have past DWI convictions on your record, it is important to hire an attorney to protect your rights immediately. I’m Osa Igunbor, a criminal defense lawyer dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome in your DWI case. Drunk driving convictions carry substantial penalties, including the loss of your driver’s license, a jail or prison sentence, fines, parole and even deportation if you are not a U.S. citizen.
DWI charges may be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances of the arrest, including your blood alcohol content (BAC) and whether an accident and injuries occurred. If you are facing a second DWI within 10 years of a first conviction, the charge will be a felony DWI.
A good drunk driving defense attorney will carefully examine the evidence available to the prosecution. For example, the police must have probable cause to pull someone over. I will determine why the police stopped you and whether they made any procedural missteps during the investigation and arrest.
