When you are arrested for a crime in New York, your reputation, your job, and your livelihood are at risk. You want a defense attorney who knows how to get your life back on track to before your nightmare began.

Gun possession charges in New York are aggressively enforced and depending on what you are charged with you can face a minimum of 3.5 to a maximum of 15 years in jail and if you are convicted the 3.5 year minimum is mandatory. A person’s first time offender status does not alleviate this hard and fast rule. This rule also applies to individuals who carry permits to carry weapons outside of New York State. Patricia Wright, Esq. has the knowledge necessary to defend your innocence.
There are various factors which make an individual eligible for a D.A.T. An individual must have a verifiable address within New York City. This is to help ensure that a client will return to the designated court date. Several crimes such as shop lifting, possession of a gravity knife, possession of a controlled substance, theft of services and non domestic assaults are typically crimes where a D.A.T. is issued. If you have been arrested for domestic assault you will not be given a D.A.T. A prior criminal record often precludes an individual from being eligible.
When you are arrested for DWI in New York State you will be asked to take a breathalyzer test to test how much alcohol is in your blood. In New York, .08, or the equivalent of approximately one beer, is the point after which you will face serious charges ranging from a misdemeanors to felonies. Also, your license to drive will be suspended and you will be unable to get it back unless there are special circumstances or until after the case is over.
It is every person’s right to have a competent and experienced defense attorney on their side. Everyone makes mistakes and not everyone deserves to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Patricia Wright can provide the legal expertise you need to get through.
It is easy to be caught making a mistake like failing to signal before turning or failing to make a full stop at a stop sign.
