Defense Lawyer Fighting DWI, Criminal Charges, Speeding Tickets And Other Traffic Offenses In New York Since 1990!
The Law Office of Rex M. Pietrobono offers over 30 years of experienced legal representation on behalf of adults and juveniles alike, and is recognized as one of New York State’s premiere resources for highly effective and strong legal defenses against drunk driving, speeding tickets and criminal law charges. Rex Pietrobono has managed to create a successful community practice with a regional presence for DWI and Criminal Defense and statewide reputation for Traffic Ticket Defense results.
Strategically defended New York DWI cases are rarely hopeless. Every case is unique and the strength of each depends upon its own particular facts. Recent changes to discovery laws also impact cases, both beneficially in favor of and with the addition of some burdens upon the defendant or “Principal” of the Case. Overall, more information on the arrest and all materials and information related thereto is required to be provided to the defense earlier than ever before. Certain defenses or circumstances may qualify for a suppression of evidence, dismissal of the charges or a reduced charge or penalty. Errors may be committed in roadside Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). Breathalyzers and blood testing may be subject to error in procedure or foundational evidence deficiencies at trial, etc. As a former prosecutor of vehicular offenses, Rex understands what goes into building a case from both sides. It is often the subtle nuances which make or break a case and can best be detected by experience in this field of DWI law.
Rex enjoys helping defend people who made an error in judgment. We are all human and we all make mistakes. No one plans to be arrested for DWI – that’s one of the many differences from other crimes or areas of law. It wasn’t done intentionally most of the time. By and large, these are very good people who made the mistake of drinking a little bit too much (or, perhaps a lot) and chose to operate a motor vehicle likely thinking they were “okay to drive.” Many of his clients are first time offenders. These extraordinary individuals have careers, families, education, and lead otherwise ordinary lives – this is their first time being arrested and prosecuted for a crime and it is understandably scary. Your attorney must fully know the New York Criminal Procedure Law before they can recognize whether or not their clients’ rights are being violated. There are many questions and unknowns in these kinds of cases and can be a highly stressful period of time in the accused’s life.

Experienced Defense Attorney Handling Criminal Matters in New York For Adults and Youthful Offenders
Crimes in New York are classified as both misdemeanors and felonies. Felonies are crimes punishable by imprisonment of more than one year while misdemeanors have a maximum sentence of 364 days. An even lesser class of offenses in New York are known as “violations” and “infractions.” While these are quasi-criminal offenses in nature and are guided by the same standards of Criminal Procedure Law – they do not rise to level of “criminality” by definition and if convicted as such, a defendant’s record would thusly remain clear of any “criminal” conviction. The most common types of criminal offenses handled by the Law Office of Rex Pietrobono are Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), DWAI Drugged Driving, Drug Possession charges, Assault, Petit Larceny, and Reckless Driving, and a variety of Juvenile Youthful Offender cases.
As a parent himself and former substitute school teacher, Rex is grateful for the opportunity defending the youth of our local families. Rex had represented many extraordinary young people charged with these same types of crimes and offenses but with the benefit of special statutory protections enacted to help ensure their futures remain bright despite youthful indiscretions (e.g., Youthful Offender (“YO”) status or treatment is eligible in many cases.) Youthful offenders make up a large part of his practice and Rex values the trust placed in him by parents. Mr. Pietrobono has a family and understands the hopes, dreams, and hard work of all which could be dashed by a simple youthful mistake – and he will do everything possible to prevent that from occurring with dismissals, reductions and sealing orders.
Legal help for his clients doesn’t stop with defending criminal charges – traffic ticket offenses and traffic infractions, such as a speeding ticket, use of a cell phone or electronic device while driving, driving with a suspended license, passing school bus, unlicensed driver, stop sign, etc., also have potentially far reaching present and future consequences for any given motorist. Even when the court case is over, there are potential ensuing implications for employment, scholastic, or further severe DMV penalties. Mr. Pietrobono is a former prosecutor whose formula for successful results is to view every case as if it were his most important case. Mr. Pietrobono takes every single matter seriously and applies his best efforts for each client. He will use his extensive experience in nearly all aspects of law to help you make the best decisions for yourself, your family, and loved ones. So, make the right choice and call now for a free preliminary consultation – you will not be disappointed!

Serving All of the State of New York For Traffic Ticket Defense
Rex personally appears in traffic courts in the counties of Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Rockland Counties. The Law Office of Rex Pietrobono also fights traffic tickets throughout the entire great State of New York via a network of highly qualified colleagues in their local geographic areas in conjunction with Rex developing his theory of the defense, reaching out to the prosecution, monitoring the case, and communicating with his clients.
All three of his practice areas of law are governed by the same code of procedural rules; i.e., the NYS Criminal Procedure Law (CPL), as well as, New York case law (some of which Rex’s own cases have contributed.) That is the reason any lawyer who merely dabbles in these criminal law and quasi-criminal law areas may ultimately be doing the client a great disservice. A DWI or criminal arrest and even speeding and traffic tickets can seriously and adversely affect the accused, their families, education, and employment for a very long time (New York DMV’s internal penalty “look back” period has now been extended from 10 years to 25 years!) People shouldn’t have to pay for one mistake for the rest of their lives. Contact Rex today for a free initial consultation and let him put his defense experience to work for you.
