DWI Attorney Fees in New York State

How much does a DWI attorney cost? It is important to recognize that DWI is a criminal matter, best left to those experienced in all aspects of DWI and related crimes.

5 Guidelines for Comparing DWI Defense Law Firms

  1. Cost does not always indicate quality of representation – a top-notch DWI lawyer doesn’t always cost more, and you want the most experienced attorney you can afford.
  2. Not all law firms are local – they may not be as familiar with local courts and prosecutors.
  3. Experience does matter – look for specific experience in DWI and criminal law.
  4. Check credentials – hiring an attorney that is well known and respected can be a benefit in any legal matter.
  5. Don’t let payment plans distract you from a quality DWI defense – most law firms, including E. Stewart Jones, are willing to work with clients that require a payment plan.

Most colleges and universities require disclosure of criminal convictions on their applications. A DWI conviction also appears on criminal background or public records check, often run by landlords, volunteer organizations, and potential employers.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
