Many people don’t fully understand the impact that a DWI conviction in New York can ultimately have on their lives. DWI convictions affect relationships, make obtaining jobs difficult, and can have psychological effects on those enduring the process. Some innocent people wrongly believe that not hiring an attorney will prove innocence, but that is not correct. Hiring a skilled DWI defense attorney is not admitting guilt. It’s a way to protect your rights and prevent evidence that is taken out of context from hurting you. Even if you have committed a crime, the criminal justice system in New York State often makes mistakes and may not always serve true justice. Our team will make sure that you are treated fairly, every step of the way along the process.

We believe you deserve to have all your questions answered, and all your worries about what this may cost you can be put at ease. We believe taking you step by step through this process should be easy. Our system for adjusting our style and approach for each individual case has had proven results. Because we believe in our clients.

Extremely Impressed

I was extremely impressed with Anelli Xavier and how quickly I was matched with representation. Everything was clearly communicated to me throughout the process and in the end I was satisfied with my result given the situation.


Always There

My attorney and his legal team were always there when I needed to ask a question, or talk about what the process was going forward. I was always updated with what the next steps would be and different routes we could take to hopefully make this as painless as possible.
