Beware of Heavy Penalities

Rhode Island law enforcement takes DWIs seriously. Penalties for a first- or second-time offense include fines, community service and alcohol education classes, license suspension, and possible jail time. These penalties are increased when your blood alcohol content (BAC) is above a set limit.

If you have been charged with multiple DWIs, you may be charged with a felony. If convicted, you face substantial fines and prison time. In addition, the consequences of a felony conviction will follow you for life.

At Comerford & Saccoccio, we build strong, solid criminal defense strategies.

Our lawyers thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding our clients' DWI charges. Was the traffic stop legal? Was there probable cause to administer a field sobriety test or Breathalyzer? Was the Breathalyzer properly calibrated? Were sobriety tests administered within appropriate time frames? If we find any indication that your rights were violated, we will fight to have evidence thrown out and your charges dismissed.

Even if your charges are not dismissed, we may be able to help you obtain a hardship license so that you can continue to drive to work, pick up your kids from day care and accomplish other necessary tasks.

If You Refuse The Breathalyzer Test

In Rhode Island, DWI and breathalyzer refusal charges often go hand-in-hand. Refusing to take the breath test may result in additional civil charges being brought against you.

At Comerford & Saccoccio, we provide defense in criminal court and the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. We negotiate firmly on our clients' behalves to get their DWI or refusal cases dismissed or reduced to lesser charges. When litigation is necessary, we provide clients with the representation they need to defend their rights and protect their driving privileges.

Driving On A Suspended License

If your license was suspended due to a DWI and you were caught driving on that suspended license, you are facing a serious charge with a mandatory 10-day jail sentence. It is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately to protect your rights.
