What You Need to Know: DMV Hearings

Strong Advocacy from a Former Prosecutor

You have a lot at stake in a drunk driving case. Your reputation, your driver's license, your freedom, your finances, and more may be at risk. One of the most important things you should be prepared for is your DMV refusal hearing, which is crucial in the DWI process.

If, for whatever reason, you refused to submit to a chemical test when you were pulled over by a law enforcement officer, you will have 15 days to schedule and appear at a DMV hearing to make your case. You owe it to yourself to work with a skilled DWI defense attorney who is knowledgeable about DWI charges, including representation at DMV hearings.

Prepare for Your DMV Hearing in Long Island

There are two separate court processes involved in a drunk driving case in New York. If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in New York, you must be prepared to deal with both. The first is the criminal hearing. The second is your hearing with the New York Department of Motor Vehicles. Having an experienced and highly capable Long Island criminal defense attorney on your side could prove extremely beneficial for both hearings.

Our defense lawyer can help you in your DMV hearing by:

  • Cross-examining the present officer's reason for pulling you over
  • Questioning the legality of your arrest
  • Scrutinizing the law enforcement's actions prior to your arrest

The DMV hearing is a valuable opportunity for you to gain a slight advantage by looking into the prosecution's early evidence and police testimony. Having an attorney with you at this hearing can make a difference in the outcome of your DWI case.
