The Aftermath Of A DWI/DUI Or Drug Crime Conviction
When facing a DWI or drug crime charge, you may expect to pay court fees and fines, incur court-enforced probation or even go to jail, but there are many other factors you may not anticipate.

We’re experienced and have in-depth knowledge of the New York laws so we can be one step ahead of the prosecutor.

Additional Consequences Of A DWI Or Drug Crime Convictions
Receiving a DWI or an arrest for driving while under the influence of drugs are serious charges. In addition to anticipated punishments, there are other consequences you need to consider, which include:
- Losing your license temporarily or permanently
- Limitations to the types of jobs you can hold
- Lost trust with and tainted reputation among family, friends, employers, co-workers and neighbors
- Chances of more severe charges and penalties, if you drive with a suspended license
- Risk of ineligibility for or cancellation of student loans and financial aid
- Court-ordered chemical dependency treatment
If you are a health care professional or a transportation or trucking industry driver, renewing special licenses may be more difficult. This can affect the ability to keep your current job.
DWI And Not A U.S. Citizen?
If you are not a United States citizen and/or are here on a visa, a misdemeanor of any type can affect your ability to stay in the country. You could be deported for a DWI. If you are in this situation, it is imperative you speak with an aggressive defense lawyer who can fight for you. Our lawyers are ready to collaborate with your immigration lawyer, if you have one, to give you the best chance at a successful outcome in both your criminal matter and your immigration status.
