DWI Defense in Hudson Valley & the Dutchess County

A conviction for driving while intoxicated (DWI) will have far-reaching implications, from license suspension and possible jail time to consequences for employment. While the case against you may seem solid, you are innocent until proven guilty. It is important to realize there are defense strategies available that can make a big difference in your future. The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC in Poughkeepsie will make the prosecution prove its case or negotiate skillfully on your behalf to minimize the impact on your finances, your family and your future.

Experienced Poughkeepsie DWI Defense Attorney

Trial lawyer Kelley M. Enderley has handled the full spectrum of DWI cases, from first-time DWI offenders and underage drivers who are attending local colleges and universities to repeat DWI offenders and out-of-state drivers.

She is familiar with the tough enforcement and harsh penalties for driving while intoxicated in New York, but she is also knowledgeable about viable DWI defenses and navigating clients through the local courts. She can also work to help you avoid how these points may affect your driving record if you hold a New Jersey driver’s license.

DUI Penalties: What You Need to Know

  • A first conviction for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while ability impaired by drugs (DWAI-Drugs) carries a six-month license suspension and possible jail time. New York law also requires an ignition interlock on a first offense.
  • A blood alcohol content (BAC) of .18 (aggravated DWI) increases the penalties.
  • Refusing the Breathalyzer results in automatic license suspension for one year, with no conditional license.
  • Commercial drivers (CDL) are considered in violation at .04 BAC.
  • Drivers under age 21 are considered in violation at .02 BAC.
  • A second DWI conviction is punishable by up to four years in state prison.
  • A third DWI offense carries mandatory prison time and possible permanent driver's license revocation.

Our goal is to help adults and minors who are arrested for drunk driving avoid jail time, a criminal conviction and license suspension if at all possible, or to limit the penalties, fines and collateral consequences for drinking and driving. Through negotiations and at trial, we have obtained solid results for clients by challenging probable cause for the traffic stop, field sobriety tests, Breathalyzer results and other evidence of errors or violations of our clients' rights.

Upon conviction for repeat offenses or felony DWI, without an effective defense strategy, jail is likely and license revocation is probable. We make every effort to reduce these serious DWI cases to a misdemeanor or noncriminal offense to avoid those outcomes, or negotiate with the prosecutors to keep clients out of prison.
