DWI Defense For College Students
Greenspan & Greenspan has offices in White Plains and New City, and defends college students throughout the region against DWI and DWAI. We also represent college students who were charged with DWI, drug crime or another crime in New York, but attend school elsewhere.
A criminal conviction can have major implications as you enter the workforce and may prevent you from entering certain professions. If you are under 21 and charged with DWI, there are additional penalties that may apply. Further, DWI is a criminal conviction and cannot be expunged from your record. Our White Plains DWI defense lawyer for college students understand these penalties and will fight your charges at every turn to eliminate or alleviate these penalties.
If You Were Charged With DWI In New York But Attend School Elsewhere, We Can Help
If you were charged with DWI while in New York but go to school in another area of the country, our law firm can work with the judge to accommodate certain aspects of your sentence. For instance, you may have to attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) impact panel or a drinking and driving program as a condition of your probation. If your university is a great distance from New York, this can represent a substantial inconvenience and hardship. Our attorneys can work with the judge to allow you to attend such a panel close to your school. If you go to school in New Jersey or Connecticut, it is likely that you will still have to attend a Drinking Driver Program or other classes in New York.
Our law firm also represents people who attend school in New York but live elsewhere in the country. Whenever possible, we will work with the judge to make arrangements that meet your needs.
