Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI)
Offering Creative Legal Strategies Against DWAI Charges
DWAI, or Driving While Ability Impaired, may be a lesser charge than a DWI, but that does not mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. In New York, penalties associated with a DWAI can include stiff mandatory fines, along with possible jail time and license suspension. If you are stopped and you have a passenger who is under the age of 18, you will be charged with a felony. If you have been charged with a DWAI, it is in your best interests to have experienced legal representation on your side.
More Than One Type of DWAI
DWAI may involve drugs (including prescription medications), alcohol or both:
- DWAI that is alcohol-related
- DWAI – Drugs
- DWAI Alcohol and Drugs

We will look at every possible reason to convince the district attorney to give you a break and reduce or dismiss the charges.
