Queens Lawyers Handling DUI And DWI Defense

Most people charged with DUI are not criminals. Rather, they have made serious mistakes in judgment — mistakes that carry more serious consequences than one might imagine. If you have been accused of drunk driving or other serious traffic charge, the attorneys at Tarshis & Hammerman can help.

Strong, Strategic Defense Against DUI and Vehicular Homicide Charges

Our lawyers handle driving-related matters that include:

  • DWI (driving while intoxicated) and DUI (driving under the influence)
  • Repeat DWI and felony DUI charges
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving on a suspended, revoked or expired license
  • Reckless or careless driving
  • Leaving the scene of an accident or hit and run

How We Help

Fighting a DUI charge involves a thorough review of police reports and video evidence. It also requires a complete analysis of the technical aspects of the charge, including breath, blood and other tests.

We will cross examine the arresting officer, employ expert witnesses to reveal problems with the breath or blood tests and uncover problems with the traffic stop and any other issues that can help strengthen your case. When we find weaknesses in the prosecution's case, we fight hard for dismissal, reduced charges or alternative penalties.

Honest Advice About Your Choices

Our Queens DUI defense lawyers will provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your case. Sometimes, it may be best to negotiate with the prosecutor rather than go to trial. In other cases, you may be best served by fighting the charges. We will be honest with you about your options and any potential consequences.
