Hiring the Right DWI Attorney in New York City

Any conviction in criminal court carries very serious risks. When you go to court, the only person who is looking out for your interests is your attorney. Your attorney is the person you should be able to trust during the uncertainties of DWI litigation. Even if your attorney is licensed and in good standing, is he or she experienced in a court room setting? Is he or she experienced with DWI related offenses? Is he or she focused on criminal law only? This is what sets The Law Offices of Lance Fletcher apart. Lance Fletcher is a former Manhattan prosecutor who knows the system and are devoted to standing up for those who have been arrested for DWI in New York.

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Fletcher are prepared to work hard to get you the results that you need.

Our Approach to Your DWI Case. In a recent case, our client was arrested for his second DWI. The District Attorney announced it was seeking felony charges and jail time.

After we discovered a critical error committed by the District Attorney, Lance Fletcher's motion to dismiss was granted. Our client not only avoided a felony, he obtained a complete and total dismissal of the entire case. No jail, no conviction, and no suspension. It took numerous court appearances and several written motions. Not all lawyers would have been willing to fight as long or as aggressively. At The Law Offices of Lance Fletcher, we are prepared to fight for as long as it takes to get you the best outcome possible. We have successfully handled over one-thousand criminal cases.
