While working as a prosecutor, Brian Berkowitz was appointed by the District Attorney of Rockland County as the Senior Assistant District Attorney in charge of the Driving While Intoxicated Bureau. In this supervisory role, he was responsible for the training of prosecutors and the review and assessment of every Driving While Intoxicated (DWI / DUI) case brought before the District Attorney's Office, as well as personally handling the most serious misdemeanor and felony Driving While Intoxicated cases from inception to trial.

As a Criminal Defense Attorney, Brian Berkowitz has utilized his insight and vast background and experience on both sides of the criminal justice system to diligently defend those charged with Driving While Intoxicated and all other Criminal matters before the Courts of Rockland County and the State of New York.

A Driving While Intoxicated (DWI / DUI) charge, unlike most other crimes, not only subjects you to criminal sanctions, but will also have serious ramifications on your driving privileges as early as the first Court appearance. The laws of the State of New York allow for the prompt and immediate suspension of your driving privileges based solely upon an alleged blood alcohol level (.08 or greater), as well as the immediate suspension of your driving privileges for refusing to submit to a chemical test to determine your blood alcohol concentration.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with Driving While Intoxicated or any other Criminal matter, please contact Brian Berkowitz to discuss your case and the options available to you.
