White Plains DWI Lawyer
Many DWI defense attorneys are quick to accept a plea bargain because of the evidence against their clients. At the Law Office of Mark A. Siesel in White Plains, New York, we pride ourselves as aggressive and seasoned DWI lawyers who will provide the best defense possible, whether by trial or negotiated plea with the District Attorney’s Office. We carefully examine the evidence against our clients to determine the best legal options available and the time and cost for all possible options. Sometimes, the only means possible to obtain the outcome we are seeking is to take the case to trial. If we are working out a plea bargain with the District Attorney’s Office, we strive to obtain the best possible resolution of the case with the least possible impact on our clients’ driver’s license or privileges, employment, family, finances, and insurance premiums.
No Automatic Plea Bargains
If a trial is the only means to obtain the outcome we are seeking, our experienced litigators will diligently, aggressively and zealously pursue that option before a judge or jury. We have been litigating cases throughout the State and Federal Courts of New York State since 1986. We have successfully represented clients in a wide variety of matters in Westchester, Orange, Rockland, Putnam, and Dutchess County, as well as in the boroughs of Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan. At the Law Office of Mark A. Siesel, with offices conveniently located in White Plains, the Bronx, and a satellite office in Peekskill, there is no such thing as an automatic acceptance of a plea bargain. We review the district attorney's evidence with great attention to all of the details, retain the necessary experts early on in the case if the matter will be litigated to trial, and are always available to discuss the status of your case by telephone or email.
Hands-On and Personalized Legal Services
When you retain an attorney to handle your DWI or any other type of criminal defense case, you get that attorney handling your case — we do not pass your case on to paralegals or lesser-experienced associates. At the Law Office of Mark A. Siesel, we bring over 28 years of legal expertise to our clients, along with hands-on, personalized attention to their cases.
