Repeat DWI & Felony DWI

DWI

Aggressive Felony DWI Defense

New York has some of the toughest DWI laws in the nation, requiring ignition interlock device (IID) installation after just one drunk driving conviction and imposing some of the nation's harshest felony DWI penalties upon those with prior DWI convictions. Now more than ever, it is important for individuals arrested for repeat or felony DWI to hire an experienced attorney who recognizes there is always a fight to be heard.

We Fight to Avoid or Minimize Consequences of a Felony DWI Arrest
At The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC, we understand that even when evidence appears to be damaging, there may be defense strategies available to get the charges dropped, reduced or dismissed. Contact us for a free phone consultation with our Hudson Valley felony DWI attorney. We skillfully counsel clients who are facing felony DWI charges in Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Putnam and surrounding counties of New York.

In New York, various drunk driving offenses are classified as felony DWI such as:

  • Second-offense DWI (one prior DWI conviction)
  • Third-offense DWI (one prior DWAI conviction and one prior DWI conviction)
  • DWI with a child under 15 in the vehicle
  • DWI accident resulting in injury to an adult or child (vehicular assault)
  • DWI accident resulting in death of an adult or child (vehicular manslaughter)

At The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC, we understand that you are facing charges for a very serious drunk driving offense. We provide personalized guidance as we tirelessly fight to protect your rights and future. We recognize that there is much more at risk when you are charged with repeat DWI or felony DWI. We thoroughly investigate your case to identify potential defense strategies, such as challenging the Breathalyzer results or challenging the original traffic stop. We do everything we can to help you avoid or minimize New York felony DWI penalties such as:

  • Up to four years in state prison
  • Five-year probation period
  • Minimum one-year driver's license revocation
  • Fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000
  • Surcharges of $295
  • Annual driver responsibility assessment of $250 per year for three years
  • Mandatory alcohol evaluation
  • Mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device

These penalties increase with each repeat offense, DWI accidents resulting in injuries or fatalities, DWI accidents with injuries to children or children fatalities and other aggravating factors.

As an experienced felony DWI defense attorney, Kelley M. Enderley is dedicated to helping you minimize the collateral effects of a felony drunk driving arrest. Our office works hard to get these charges reduced to misdemeanor offenses or other noncriminal traffic offenses in order to avoid the harshest outcomes.
