Examples of traffic misdemeanors are:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving while impaired by drugs
- Aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle
- Reckless driving
Conviction to these charges can result in jail, probation, license revocations, large fines, surcharges and points on your NYS driving record. The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles recently passed new regulations that can result in a permanent revocation of your driving privileges. An experienced and skilled attorney like Lloyd Nadel can handle these charges and save his clients from such severe sanctions. Even if you blew on an intoxilyzer and registered more than the legal limit or you were driving while your privileges were actually suspended or revoked, Mr. Nadel can have the charges dismissed or reduced. He has tried numerous DWI cases and obtained acquittals, dismissals and convictions to lesser charges. It is critical to retain an attorney as soon as possible to have the proper investigation and research performed on the case.
In a case that Lloyd tried, the defendant rear-ended another car at a traffic light and was charged with driving while intoxicated. He refused the intoxilyzer test and the police videotaped him in police headquarters performing standard field sobriety tests. After cross examining the police and civilians who were witnesses at the scene and playing the video recording, the defendant was found "not guilty" of driving while intoxicated.
In another case, Mr. Nadel's client, a college student, was stopped by police outside of Hofstra University and charged with driving while intoxicated. He took the intoxilyzer test and registered a .10. After trial where Mr. Nadel cross examined the police officers and presented witnesses who were also present at the scene with the defendant that evening, the jury returned a verdict of "not guilty" to the driving while intoxicated charge.
