Port Chester Law

Do I need to hire a lawyer for a DUI? Or is it ok to go with a public defender?
I got a DWI and blew a .14 last week at a State Police check point in Port Chester, NY. Although I've done a lot of research I cannot seem to justify the $3-5K for a lawyer when my case seems pretty cut and dry. I've been told I can most likely plea down to a DWAI and take the necessary classes. Can a private lawyer really do a great deal more than a public defender? Thanks!!
Simply put, no case is the same as another. There are too many variables from the individual facts of the case to the...
Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.
Can a confession that is given while drunk/intoxicated be used in court?
Can a confession that is given while drunk/intoxicated be used in court?
The short answer is yes. A defense attorney can also ask the person testifying about the condition of the confessor.
I am a taxi driver in Westchester. I unfortunately got a DWI last week. It was a refusal. Will I be able to get a conditional?
I spoke to several lawyers but I get different answers. Will I be able to work with a conditional while my case is pending? IT is my first offence of any kind. Please help besides saying hire a good lawyer. No accident. No passengers. No injuries.

I was approved for DACA IN September 2014. Weeks later I charged with. Dwi.
I was charged with dwi, no license and criminal mischief in 4th degree this was due to police argue I damaged to me kicking the door from the inside, no damaged was done but the police just wanted to go harsh on me. My plea deal was conviction on Dwai and driving with the music too loud. Both are consider to be traffic infractions, not misdeaminors, can I renew my daca, or will it be denied. Guidelines for daca don't say anything about DWAI, that I know regular dwi is consider misdeaminor.
Since you plead only to infractions it should have no consequence to your immigration status. However, when you apply...
I have an outstanding Bench Warrant from 1997 for DUI and unsafe backing how can do I resolve this?
My goal is to do this by not having to return to New York, please advise.
there is no way to resolve it without you personally appearing
First offense, upm and dui. Please help.
Got pulled over by state troopers, they saw weed in my back seat (small amount) and they searched my car (no consent to that). Asked me to get out of the car and I ended up performing a sobriety test (without consent as well or even being asked). They told me I failed even though I was sober! And they arrested me, took me to the hospital to get blood taken( I agreed cause I was sober) and then took me to the station to get processed. What do I do? This is my first offense.
I suggest that you hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
