If you have been arrested and charged with DWI in New York, it is likely
that your car was seized as well. The seizure of your vehicle can make
an already traumatic situation much worse. Even if you have not been found
guilty of the charge, the NYPD has authority to seize your car because
under civil law they will claim that there is cause to believe that your
car was used as an instrument of the crime.
Often times, our clients do not own the car they driving at the time or
they may own the car, but are financing the car from the dealer or a leasing
agent. Either way, doing what it takes to get back the car can be a major
inconvenience and cause you immense amounts of frustration. Not only are
you faced with a criminal charge, but you have to focus on complying with
the endless conditions in order to convince the NYPD and the District
Attorney’s Office to return your car. The criminal attorneys at
Sullivan & Brill can help and make this process much more efficient
and convenient for you.
A Legal Firm You Can Trust
We have years of experience dealing with the District Attorney’s
office and the NYPD legal bureau when it comes to getting our client’s
car returned. We know which clerk to speak to at the DA’s office,
which attorney to speak to at the NYPD Legal Bureau, and who to contact
at the pound itself (either Red Hook or near Laguardia Airport) to facilitate
an end to this ordeal.
Furthermore, we know exactly what to advise our client’s to do so
that they will have everything they need – including the proper
paperwork, identification, and form of payment. It is tough enough to
deal with the DWI charge in and of itself, let us represent you when it
comes to getting back your car so you can move on with your life.
If you’ve been arrested for a DUI or DWI in New York, it’s
extremely important that you contact our law firm right away. An arrest
is not a conviction, and there is still hope to begin building the defense
you need to secure a favorable outcome.
