In Need of a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Saratoga Springs, New York?

Your Fight is Our Fight

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys in Saratoga Springs, New York

At O’Brien & Eggleston PLLC, our Saratoga Springs criminal defense lawyers know that while just over 28,000 residents share the city’s nearly 29 square miles, the city’s spas, outdoor activities, horse racing and gaming attract over two million visitors annually.

Because this is true, Saratoga Springs Police Chief Shane Crooks announced a new partnership with the county sheriff’s department and state police to have more patrols downtown to handle the larger crowds expected over the summer months as more tourists begin visiting and the number of weekend events taking place increases.

Our Saratoga Springs County criminal defense attorneys know that crowd control is necessary here and across New York when large events are taking place nearby. However, we also know that more police means more arrests for alleged crimes that leave locals vulnerable to criminal charges that can change their lives.

Whether you are a tourist who has been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, or a local resident who was arrested for an alleged crime, we want to hear your story, so you can face your charges with confidence.

Our law firm’s priority is to create positive outcomes that align with our clients’ goals, so everyone understands the reality of their legal challenges, and how we can help them.

What Happens When a Visitor is Arrested for DWI/DWAI in Saratoga Springs, New York

Both Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) by illicit or prescription drugs are serious crimes in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Because the city sees so many visitors each year, many of those who are arrested do not live here. If you are one of them, you are probably wondering how your DWI/DWAI charges are going to unfold. We can help.

Out-of-state drivers should seek assistance from experienced Saratoga County DWI lawyers after an arrest for drunk or drugged driving in Saratoga Springs, or elsewhere in New York, because they are subject to the same penalties as our residents for drug and alcohol-related driving offenses.

That may include:

First Offense DWI Penalties in New York State

  • Misdemeanor criminal charges.
  • $500 to $1,000 in fines.
  • Up to 1 year in jail.
  • Minimum 6-month driver’s license revocation.

Under the Interstate Driver’s License Compact, New York and other member states have agreed to treat a DWI conviction in a member state as if it had occurred in the driver’s home state.

This may lead to:

  • The out-of-state driver’s DWI/DWAI conviction in New York being reported to the driver’s home licensing jurisdiction.
  • The driver’s home state suspending or revoking their driver’s license because of a New York DWI/DWAI conviction, among other potential penalties.

While your home state may require someone arrested in DWI/DWAI case to appear in court, our skilled Saratoga Springs criminal defense attorneys can appear in court on your behalf if you are facing misdemeanor charges, so you can go home and regain control of your life there.

Avoiding a New York DWI/DWAI conviction altogether will release you from the legal penalties here and in your home state. That starts by partnering with skilled DWI defense attorneys who can manage your case on your behalf. No matter how serious your situation may be, our criminal defense team believes your case is worth investigating to protect your future and your freedom.

As your legal advocate, our Saratoga Springs criminal defense lawyer will investigate the charges and evidence filed against you to look for errors or other details that could be critical in the outcome of your case.
