In New York, being charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs (DUI), or Driving While Ability Impaired by Alcohol (DWAI) are serious offenses. In Suffolk County alone, there are about 4,000 DWI prosecutions each year. While drunk driving is dangerous and can result in the serious injury and death of others, absent an accident, significant penalties and jail terms can usually be avoided.
Where an arrest has occurred, qualified legal representation will not suffice, it is imperative you hire an experienced attorney. Some DWI's may result in the seizure or possible sale of your vehicle. Glen Suarez has the requisite experience to handle seizure hearings which may arise in connection with DWI charges. Many of these cases can be defended or negotiated, leading to a guilty plea to a reduced charge. A charge reduction can provide our client with the second chance that everyone deserves.

Personal injury cases are designed to compensate victims for intentional and negligent actions of others. There can be considerable awards to individuals injured by products placed into the stream of commerce which are harmful when used as directed. The law seeks to compensate victims and their families for pain and suffering, lost earnings, loss of consortium, and at times award punitive damages in the event of negligence.
Common personal injury claims include those arising from motor vehicle accidents, assaults and batteries, slip and falls and construction accidents, including falls from scaffolds and buildings. Injuries suffered on another person's property are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you or a family member has been injured in a slip-and-fall or other accident away from your home you may have a premises liability claim.

Family Law, Divorce, Child Support, & Custody
When a couple decides to end a marriage, a judge must issue a divorce decree. This requires one spouse filing for a divorce on the basis of grounds, including cruel and inhuman treatment, adultery, imprisonment, abandonment, or constructive abandonment. Irreconcilable differences is no longer a ground for divorce in New York. However, if a spouse does not contest the grounds, the matter can be moved to an uncontested calendar, preventing the need to litigate the ground(s) of the divorce. The second means for obtaining a divorce is through the conversion of a separation agreement that has been in effect for at least a year.
When parents divorce, the divorce decree will specify with whom the divorcing couple's children will live and circumstances under which the other parent will visit with the children. When they are unable to work out these arrangements between themselves, or when unmarried parents are unable to agree on who will have custody of their child, the court may intervene and make a decision based on the child's best interests.
When couples do not marry, issues of custody and child support are handled in Family Court. Family Court also handles juvenile criminal matters. Glen Suarez is experienced in handling matters in Family Court.
