Many people ask me whether they can get a copy of the video recording of them after their arrest for a driving while intoxicated DWI or DUI in New York City.
The answer is YES.
The video recording of you at the police department can contain vital information and be critical as evidence for and against you in a DWI case.
Therefore, the law requires that the prosecutor turn over to you and your attorney a copy of the video recording.
The recording often times shows key pieces of evidence such as how the police explained and demonstrated the standard field sobriety tests, the actual chemical test, how the refusal warnings were given and what if any statements made by you were before or after the Miranda warnings were given.

Please spend some time speaking to attorneys about your options with regard to your case. I would be happy to speak to you.

Great lawyer!

First and foremost, I would like to thank Carl Spector. since day one he was extremely reassuring on helping me with my 1st DWI-DUI case. My case was very complex, with charges for leaving the scene of an accident, DWI,Refusal and reckless. Not to mention it was in two different counties. But right off the bat ,Carl came up with a game plan as soon as I called him. After months of back in forth work, he made everything fall in the right places. He managed to drop every ticket including the refusal which is huge deal, by him finding a simple mistake the officer wrote on my report. I walked out of the court with a great plea deal with most of all the tickets dismissed and only stuck with a 1st offense DWI and carless. Once again thanks Carl for being there 100% of the way!

Please call Carl Spector, Attorney at Law for a free and confidential consultation.

Read what Carl Spectors’ clients have said about him:

Honest, Forthright Attorney with Extensive Knowledge of the Law and Criminal Justice System

Carl provided excellent legal representation for my husband, who was arrested on his first DUI charge early Sunday morning. Carl was great from the start. He answered my frantic phone call at 5AM, listened to my concerns and agreed to represent my husband at his arraignment. Carl was forthright and explained to me the entire process – where my husband was, what was going to happen to him, what I should expect at his arraignment and advised that it was going to be a long wait for him to be processed. Carl then continuously followed up with the Court and provided status updates to me every few hours so that I was informed. At the end of the day, Carl was able to secure a plea for my husband that resulted in just a traffic infraction as opposed to a misdemeanor. Carl was able to obtain a stay of suspension of my husband’s driver’s license so that he could continue driving for work while he waited for a conditional license. As a fellow attorney, I can attest to Carl’s knowledge of the law and legal system and I would recommend him without hesitation.

What to expect at the first appearance to the DMV Chemical Test Refusal Hearing.

At your first appearance to the DMV, the refusal hearing may take place if the arresting officer appears for the hearing. If the officer does not appear at the DMV then as long as the motorist does not have any other suspensions, the administrative law judge will reinstate the motorist’s driving privileges on the spot. If the police officer does appear at the DMV the hearing will take place and you run the risk of losing your right to drive in New York as a result. If the police officer does appear you may ask for a postponement of the hearing. If the judge grants the postponement the judge will continue your suspension until the results of a hearing that will be held several months later.

Does the motorist need an attorney at the hearing?

It is highly recommended that you have your own attorney at the refusal hearing. There are many rules and regulations that an experienced attorney can explain to the motorist and can be a great benefit to the motorist.

If you have any questions or for a free consultation please contact Carl Spector at 212 683 5912 or toll free at 800 879 6410.
