Ithaca DWI Lawyer: DWI and My Client's Ithaca Jail Experience

Our local jail on a cold Ithaca winter morning!

In this blog post, I will give my little jail overview, and then an inside look from one of my clients who was nice enough to write it for me. I recently took a 2 hour plus jail tour but my client's insights below are a wonderful resource for those people having a short jail term to deal with.

Ithaca DWI Lawyer: Dealing with a New York License Suspension

See below to read Notice of DMV License Suspension

In a perfect world, someone gets a traffic ticket and deals with it in a timely manner. Whether they do it themselves or with an attorney IT (the ticket) is handled and put to rest.

In the real world people are busy, they move, they change jobs, and tickets get forgotten. Sometimes it is unintentional as in, OMG I forgot about that one or sometimes it is intentional as in who gives a crap what New York wants I live in Boston.

Traffic Tickets Must Be Dealt With OR Else? Or Else What?

Ithaca DWI Lawyer: Can DWI Lawyers Be Healers of Conflict?

Chief Justice Warren Burger
"Lawyers Ought to be Healers"

Before practicing law I practiced chiropractic, acupuncture, and physical therapy for ten years in Palm Beach County, Florida. Then I sold my chiropractic practice, and entered law school in 1995.

I moved to practice civil litigation in medical and personal injury law in PA and NJ. Then civil and family mediation in Florida. AND For the last 9 years I am here in Ithaca, New York practicing DWI and traffic related defense.

Even though I don't see myself as a chiropractor anymore I still see myself as a Healer.

Can a DWI defense lawyer be a healer of conflict?
