A DWI/DUI Charge Can Happen To Anyone

DWI/DUI is one of the most common criminal charges, and it can happen to anyone. Often, people get behind the wheel truly believing they are okay to drive, only to find themselves on the wrong side of the law. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you need to have an experienced lawyer on your side as soon as possible.

I am attorney Brian Devane, and I bring nearly 30 years of legal experience to my criminal defense practice in Albany County. I help defend people from all walks of life against misdemeanor and felony drunk driving charges. To schedule a free initial consultation, call me at 518-545-5954.

The Consequences Of A Drunk Driving Charge Are Severe

The penalties associated with a drunk driving charge are based on a number of factors, including past offenses, aggravating circumstances and age of the driver. Regardless of the charge, the consequences of a conviction are severe, and at a minimum involve substantial fines and the mandatory suspension of your driver’s license. Repeat offenders face the possibility of jail time and may be required to install an ignition interlock device in their car.

No matter what potential penalties you are facing, I will do everything I can to reduce the potential consequences. In some situations, it may make sense to attempt to have the charges reduced to a lesser offense. In other situations, the best path forward may be to directly attack the evidence against you in court. I will thoroughly explain the options available to you so you are able to make the most informed decision about how to proceed.
