What Are the Common DWI Defense Strategies?

A DWI arrest is a complex process with many steps. The State of New York is responsible for ensuring each step is followed to the exact letter of the law. At Schalk, Ciaccio & Kahn, our job is to ensure these rigorous standards are upheld and to uncover any inconsistencies with the arrest and booking. As experienced prosecutors, we offer a unique perspective that career defense attorneys don’t have, which gives us an advantage if your case goes to trial. We take the time to explore all possible defense strategies and employ the ones that give us the best chance to win the case. Some of the most common DWI defense strategies we use include the following:

  • Unlawful Traffic Stop – New York state police officers cannot pull drivers over indiscriminately. If your traffic stop was done without reasonable suspicion, it may be grounds to dismiss the charges.
  • Lack of Probable Cause – Once the vehicle is pulled over, probable cause is required by the officer to administer a breathalyzer, field sobriety test, or make an arrest. Ignoring these steps can lead to the case being dismissed.
  • Insufficient Evidence – It is the responsibility of the state to provide beyond a reasonable doubt the defendant’s guilt in court based on the evidence presented. Our team can work to cast doubt on the state’s evidence.
