Poughkeepsie Criminal Defense Attorney
VanDeWater & VanDeWater, LLP draws on its years of trial experience when representing clients accused of a crime or DWI (driving while intoxicated). Success comes from thorough preparation both for the court room and for the negotiation process with the prosecution. With a former prosecutor as one of our partners who knows what it takes to avoid a conviction, VanDeWater & VanDeWater, LLP is an exceptional and experienced New York criminal defense law firm.
When we decide to represent a client in a criminal matter or DWI (driving while intoxicated) we commit ourselves to exploring every possible option available to obtain a successful resolution.
From the moment we get retained, we begin our investigation. We review the police reports, witnesses’ testimony, forensic and other scientific analysis to find things the prosecution and law enforcement may have overlooked. We work closely with our clients to learn all we can about the circumstances of the allegations in an effort to uncover valuable evidence. Our role as a criminal law attorney is to scrutinize the evidence in an effort to demonstrate to either the prosecutor or, if necessary, the jury, that reasonable doubt exists.
If you’re accused of a crime it is vital to have an attorney present before answering any questions or making any statements. The sooner you are represented, the better your chances to resolve the charges against you.
Whether defending a client against a DWI (driving while intoxicated case) charge, felony drug crime, white collar, embezzlement or theft allegations, we never forget what is at stake. As a criminal defense law firm in New York, we take our obligations seriously and always promise to do the best we can for our clients.
