DMV Matters in New York

Let Our Long Island DWI Attorney Help You

Whether you have been arrested for a DWI or cited for a moving violation, you may face administrative proceedings at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). While DMV hearings and all similar matters are not considered criminally related, having an experienced lawyer on your side can have a positive impact on the outcome of your case.

At Foley Griffin, we can take action to protect your rights and ensure that the DMV proceedings are handled in the correct manner. Our criminal defense lawyers are committed to protecting your driving privileges, so you can continue to commute to work, attend classes, and conduct day-to-day activities.

Why Might the DMV Summon You to a Hearing?

The New York DMV has the authority to suspend your driver’s license if you are convicted of certain criminal offenses. However, you are granted due process through an administrative hearing and the right to request a hearing to challenge your license suspension.

The following are common reasons you may be summed by the NY DMV:

  • DWI
  • Failure to submit a breath test
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without insurance
  • Involvement in a fatal accident
  • High speed
  • Persistent violations
  • Repair shop violations

You only have a limited time—typically 15 days—to contact the DMV and request a hearing to challenge your driver’s license suspension. If you fail to show up, then your license will be automatically revoked.

Ready to Represent You at Your Hearing

In many of these hearings, the arresting officer does not show up on that first date. If you are there and the officer is not, the DMV may adjourn your hearing and return your full driving privileges until the next hearing. Do not risk losing your ability to drive with our experienced legal assistance.
