Out Of State DWI & Reciprocity

Dutchess County Lawyer Defending Out Of State DWI Matters

Confidence And Dedication In Reciprocity Cases Throughout New York

Every state has differing DWI and drunk driving laws. Being arrested for a DWI in New York does not mean that you will only face consequences in New York. If your DWI goes unresolved, your home state could be notified and you could face penalties that are based on that state’s DWI laws.

The Law Office of Kevin M. MacKay can help you understand and take action in drunk driving reciprocity matters and help protect you against the serious consequences on various fronts. We welcome you to schedule a free initial consultation with our firm by contacting us online or by telephone at 845-462-0001.

What Happens If I Get A DWI In Another State?

If you are driving in New York and get a DWI, you could face consequences from both your home state and New York. These could include:

  • Having your license suspended in New York, your home state or both
  • Having your license revoked in one or both states
  • Facing substantial fines in one or both states
  • Having sanctions placed on your license or having points taken off of your license

This area of law is highly complex, and the consequences you face could end up piling on top of one another due to reciprocity.

We will tirelessly work for you, protecting your driving privileges and helping you minimize the consequences of your DWI charge or conviction. Our firm also represents students at Vassar College, Marist College, and The Culinary Institute of America who are facing DWI issues.
