Buffalo DWI Attorney Discusses the Penalties for a First Time DWI

I am frequently asked as a Buffalo DWI Attorney of the penalties for a first time DWI offense.  Unfortunately, even if this is your first time you will still be given a criminal conviction, and this will appear on your record for the rest of your life.   A penalty for a first time offender is a 6 month suspension of your license, a $500 minimum fine, and a $400 surcharge.  I advise clients as a Buffalo DWI Attorney that you will even be required to install an inter locking device in your vehicle at your expense for at least 6 months, plus monthly fees.  You will also be required to attend a victim-impact panel.  If you need a conditional or restricted license during the time your license has been suspended, you will need to take a DDP class.
