Everyone makes mistakes. A conviction for drunk driving has the potential to do much more damage to your life beyond just the criminal penalties. There may be the loss of family, employment and reputation, as well as a host of other collateral consequences. That is why you can put your trust in me, attorney Luigi Vigliotti, if you are facing charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence of drugs (DUI). At my law firm in Garden City, New York, the Law Offices of Luigi Vigliotti, P.C., I represent drivers throughout New York State, including all courts in Nassau and Suffolk counties, New York City and Upstate. As your lawyer, I will quickly get to work investigating your case and put you in a position to achieve the best possible outcome for your case. You deserve no less, when — in addition to possible jail time and fines — you could be facing:
  • Probation
  • Ignition interlock device installation
  • Vehicle forfeiture
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Skyrocketing insurance rates
  • And much, much more

You Could Face Felony DWI Charges In Certain Circumstances

New York state has a law known as “Leandra’s Law.” Under that law, if you are arrested on suspicion of DWI or DUI with anyone who is 15 years old or younger in your car, you will be charged with a felony, even if it is your first offense.

If convicted, you could face, among other things, more than one year in jail, several thousands of dollars in fines and mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device. That is why it is important to have a seasoned trial lawyer who understands the complexities of DWI/DUI litigation. As a former New York State prosecutor, I know how law enforcement will approach your case, and I understand how to find and take advantage of weaknesses (such as chemical breath, blood, urine or saliva test results or the legality of the traffic stop) that can be used to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
