Pearl River Law

I paid my dues for a DUI in NY. I was granted a conditional license and now am a valid ny driver. I was pulled over in Nj.
I was pulled over in NJ at a random check. I was told by the policeman I was driving with a suspended license. I am a legal NY driver. I wasn't drunk. I was driving fine. No speeding. I live in Ny and work in NY. Not sure why I was pulled over, but I was. Now i have a court date in September. What will happen to me? Should I get a lawyer? Now sure what to do.
I suggest that you get a criminal defense lawyer. You need to find out the basis of the suspension. Go to DMV.
I have a NY Conditional License after a DWAI. I am moving to NJ can I get a NJ license prior to the end of my revocation?
I get my full license back in December 2015. I cannot drive anywhere by to and from work/my house (address on my license). I am not permanently moving to NJ but temporarily. Can I keep my NY license and change the address on my conditions?
I do not believe that NJ will give you a driver's license while you have a conditional in NY.
Can I take a Xanax before court? I was arrested for a DWI and have court in a week.
I have a prescription for alprazolam for my anxiety--particularly public speaking/stressful situations. I get very red in the chest, face and neck and there is no covering it up. Can I take a Xanax or is that just asking for trouble?
If your doctor prescribed the medication and you need the medication then common sense would dictate.
I got arrested for a DWI in NY last week. I work in and currently live in NJ but have a NY license, is this going to be an issue
I am hoping to get a conditional license if I am convicted, will I not be able to get one in NY if I live in NJ? I never got a NJ license because it isn't my permanent residence. I was arrested in NY and I'm concerned that if I get a conditional NY license, I won't be able to drive to and from my apartment in NJ to work. I also refused the chemical test under suggestion from on of the officers, so at this point am I not eligible for a conditional license if by some miracle I am not convicted of the DWI?
Generally speaking, yes. Having an out of state license can really hurt your ability to get a restricted license....
What is the difference between VTL 1192.2 and VTL 1192.3? I am being charged for VTL 1192.3 (DWI INTOX)
I do not understand the difference between the two. VTL 1192.2 is listed as DWI 0.08% BAC or Greater, but 1192.3 simply lists DWI INTOX. Can you explain the difference?
The simple answer is that a charge of 1192.2 requires the DA to prove your BAC, blood alcohol content is .08 or above....
Is there any possibility I could lose my license for less than a year if I refused to do a chemical test?
I travel constantly for work and need to be able to rent a car when I am on business trips but that seems like it won't be a possibility with a conditional license. I understand I am going to lose my license but is there any way it won't be for a year?
Chemical test refusal hearings can be won. It depends on the facts of your case. Please contact an experienced DWI...
The officer that arrested me did not tell me what I blew in the breathalyzer on scene, I then refused a chemical test. What now?
I was arrested for a DWI (misdemeanor) last week and did blew into a breathalyzer while pulled over. Upon being brought to the police department, I didn't know if refusing the chemical test would make it worse or not, and one of the officers said that "in his opinion" I was better off not taking it because it would be easier to fight in court. I haven't met with my lawyer yet, but was wondering if I would have been told if the charge was for aggravated DWI on the spot--I wasn't told what I blew.
They will charge you with the refusal and not aggravated DWI if you refused the chemical test. I am surprised that the...
