Suffolk County DWI lawyer Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/how-much-does-a-dwi-conviction-cost-in-ny/) explaining the cost of a DWI conviction in New York. The lawyer mentions that in New York, a DWI conviction is a very serious matter. Even for a first-time offender, a DWI conviction carries significant penalties and costs that can impact an individual’s life forever.

“Even after paying fines and other fees, you may be facing consequences affecting your employment, your personal and professional relationships, and your future. If you are facing DWI charges on Long Island, you owe it to yourself to get the legal advice and guidance of an experienced DWI lawyer to help you navigate the legal system,” says the Suffolk County DWI lawyer.

The lawyer explains that in New York, alcohol-impaired driving falls into main categories: DWAI (driving while ability impaired), and DWI (driving while intoxicated). These offenses carry their own consequences and fines. There is a $300 to $500 fine for a first-time DWAI offense. For a first-time DWI offense, the fines are between $500 and $1000.

Attorney Jason Bassett says that the costs of posting bail, court costs, towing fees, and an impound fee will be added to the fines. Depending on the individual’s situation, this cost can run into hundreds or thousands of dollars in financial costs.

In the article, attorney Jason Bassett also says that a DWI conviction in New York will probably require the person to attend substance abuse classes. These classes will also cost the person something around $50 to $200. The person may also be required to pay the cost of an alcohol abuse screening.

According to the DWI attorney, “After you are convicted of a DWI in New York, your insurance company will see you as a high risk. How big an effect it will have on your individual coverage and premiums will vary depending on who your insurer is and where you live. In most cases, at the very least, there will be a substantial increase in the price of your premiums – on average about $1,500 annually. Your premiums will be impacted by your DWI for about 3 years.”

Lastly, attorney Jason Bassett emphasizes the importance of having a skilled DUI lawyer when facing drunk driving charges. An experienced DUI lawyer may be able to help the accused receive a more favorable outcome and avoid the negative impacts of a DWI charge.
