After being arrested...

in an Assault 2nd Violent Felony offense, as well as other misdemeanors, our client’s entire case was dismissed following a presentation of the matter to a Grand Jury. The client avoided any felony conviction as well as potential state prison. CASE DISMISSED

Following a probable cause hearing...

In a local court in Monroe County, Mr. Sercu negotiated a reduction of the DWI charge to a noncriminal offense when the hearing exposed weaknesses in the government’s case for DWI. Following the hearing, client accepted a plea to DWAI that allowed her to keep her job, avoid a criminal record and the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device.

NYS legislature recently changed...

and amended the Criminal Procedure Law to permit people with criminal records whether it be felonies or misdemeanors to position the court to seal those convictions. Contact the attorneys at Sercu Law to discuss possibly sealing of your criminal record.

In 2012 new DMV laws changed all rules as it pertains to the relicensing of repeat DWI offenders.

These laws created a class of revocations that ‘look back’ 25 years. So, if you have 3 or 4 alcohol related convictions and you have your license revoked (regardless of what the judge does in criminal court) the DMV will extend the most recent revocation for an additional 5 years with no conditional license and no ability to drive. After that 5 years, depending on your prior driving history as it pertains to other non-alcohol related infractions like speeding tickets, stop signs, etc. the DMV will permit you to reapply for a 5-year conditional license that would also require you to install an ignition interlock device (IID) for 5 years.

However, if in the review of your 25 year abstract the DMV locates another ‘Serious Driving Offense (SDO)’ such as 20 or more points on your driving abstract in the last 25 years or 2 or more 5-point offenses than the DMV will revoke you for life. Meaning you can’t drive.

My job as your criminal defense lawyer is to go in and look at the abstract, make applications to the court to reopen earlier related convictions or prior traffic convictions in an effort to reduce or eliminate the 5-year revocation extension or the lifetime revocation.

We have a strategy in place to successfully reopen earlier convictions. Call Sercu law to see if there are ways, we can petition courts to secure your NYS license.
