When a driver is arrested for DWI in New York, a process is set in motion. In other words, the arrest is step one of the DWI case. Following the arrest, the driver is booked and held in custody until the police paperwork for the arrest is completed. Next, bail may be set, which the driver would have to pay before being released from custody. During this part of the process, an initial court date will be set. After the driver is notified of his or her court date, and has paid any bail, they will be released from custody. 

The initial court date is for an arraignment, where the driver formally appears in court for the first time.  This appearance may occur very soon after the driver is taken into custody, perhaps within a few hours if a judge is available.  Because this is the first appearance, it is essential that a skilled, experienced attorney represent the driver. It is never a good idea to try to handle a DWI alone. You need legal representation as the entire process can become complicated very quickly.

Hiring a reputable law firm is the best step you can take following your arrest. Experienced DWI attorneys will be able to assess your case, represent you in court hearings, negotiate plea bargains if your case calls for it, and represent you at trial (should a trial occur). An expert DWI lawyer will also be able to spot any issues of evidence gathered in your case. For example, breath tests are commonly used against a driver as evidence of intoxication. However, these chemical are not reliable and do not always reveal accurate blood alcohol content level results. A highly trained and practiced attorney will be able to handle issues like this, and use these circumstances to your advantage.
