Successful Defense for DUI Cases

We successfully defend DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charges, which in New York State are charged under the DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) laws.

Depending on the facts of the case, we may be able to get your charges reduced or even dismissed.

What if the police officer did not have probable cause to stop your car and investigate? 

What if the testing procedures were improperly conducted or the equipment was faulty? 

There may even be biological reasons why your test seemed incriminating.

These and other factors can provide the means for a successful defense of your DUI (DWI) charge.

We will carefully examine all aspects of your case. In a free consultation with you, we will explain your legal options and their likely outcomes. We will provide you with the information you need to make intelligent choices.

If your decision is to contest the charges, we will represent you aggressively with the goal of obtaining a dismissal or reduction in the charge. If the state’s evidence is extremely strong, we will seek an outcome that mitigates the penalties you incur.

Whatever your decision, we will present the strongest possible case designed to protect your rights and ability to drive.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
