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.
