If you have been pulled over and arrested for Driving While Intoxicated in Westchester County, chances are you will be called in to one of the county’s Justice Courts - that is when you need the help of former State Trooper, turned DWI defense attorney Randall Inniss.

Westchester County is infamous for the congested busy roadways and highways that run through it as commuters, sightseers, and endless quantities of goods and services make their way in and out of the New York City area. Perhaps less well known, but even more problematic, are the justice courts that administer all sorts of traffic tickets and violations that get handed out on a daily basis in the county. Especially DWIs.

Each justice court, which can serve an area as small as a village, administers its proceedings slightly differently, with justices (not judges, technically) who sometimes do not even have to have had the legal training of a lawyer. If you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated in Westchester County, chances are you will have to navigate this system, a daunting prospect on your own. But you do not have to be on your own.

DWI defense attorney Randall Inniss has made a career of defending clients from across the county, the state, and even the country, charged with DWIs or similar misdemeanors in Westchester’s Justice Courts. He is uniquely familiar with their workings, and those of the state troopers and police who bring in the cases, because he used to be one himself.

Why Are Justice Courts Such A Hassle In Westchester County?

DWI Defense Attorney, Westchester County, New York

Almost every one of Westchester’s 23 villages, 19 towns and six cities has its own justice courts, and unlike those at county or higher levels, justice courts are independent of the New York State Office of Court Administration. This means that their policies, practices, and procedures vary.

Everything from the hours and days the justice courts are open, to who needs to be present when your case is brought forward, varies from court to court and thus from Westchester village to village.

This means DWI charges will be handled differently, and the optimal strategies for getting your charge dismissed, defended, or diverted will vary as well. As a result, representing yourself is inadvisable, even if you have been through a previous DWI charge in a different town or county, as the experience will be different.

Instead, you should turn to someone whose experience goes even deeper than most defense attorneys, who knows how the police and the prosecution build their cases because he used to be a part of it.

Why Do I Need A DWI Defense Attorney In The First Place?

Even putting aside the difficulties in dealing with Westchester Justice Courts, handling a DWI arrest is not easy. It is, however, quite simple to say or do the wrong thing and make your situation worse. Remember, anything you do or say can be used against you, and you can bet nothing will be used to your advantage unless you have a lawyer present to advise you.

A DWI defense lawyer will not only help you avoid any obvious pitfalls and confessions, they will also be able to do far more than you ever could alone to defend your case, or better still, get the charges dropped, or the case dismissed.

Even if all the odds and evidence are stacked against you and a conviction seems inevitable, what you get convicted for can be improved by a savvy attorney who is aware of all the diversion programs and deal-making options available under the law.

This last part is incredibly valuable because, while a DWI charge might not seem like the end of the world, it could very well be the end of your career.

What Are The Consequences For A DWI Conviction In Westchester County?

DWI Defense Attorney, Westchester County, New York

Regardless of how you slice it, driving while under the influence is a crime, and that means a permanent blemish on your record. If you are young, this could permanently steer your future away from the brightest institutions and the best jobs.

If you are already employed, especially in a role that requires a state license to practice, such as a doctor, nurse, teacher or any number of roles (including a lawyer), a DWI conviction could cost you that license and your career along with it. Truckers and other professionals who drive for a living will be in the worst position, as a single DWI conviction can cost them everything.

Even if you do not have a professional license, your driver's license will automatically be suspended after a DWI arrest and conviction; if you depend on your vehicle to get to work like so many do in Westchester County, you can kiss that job goodbye or get ready for the worst commute of your life.

This is why it is imperative to get a DWI defense lawyer onboard as soon as possible when you are arrested, and certainly if you are charged.
