Stewart McMillan, Esq. is a former New York State Prosecutor duly licenced to practice criminal law in both the States of New York and Connecticut since 1995 and 1996, respectively. Mr. McMillan's main office is located in Larchmont, New York in Westchester County. He also has branch offices in Manhattan County in New York City and in Stamford, Connecticut. Over the years Mr. McMillan has represented the accused in all of the New York City Courts as well as in Westchester, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Nassau and Suffolk Counties and in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
With a dramatic rise in alcohol awareness in the past five years alone, sponsored by groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) the enforcement of DWI related crimes and the penalties associated therewith have increased dramatically.
Mr. McMillan, a member in good standing of the New York State Bar Association, the Westchester County Bar Association, the New York City Bar Association and the Fairfield County Bar Association, has used the experience he has gained, both as a Prosecutor and a Defense Attorney, to win at trial and hearings as well as to extract extremely favorable plea deals.
Among the factual circumstances that Mr. McMillan has encountered in his years of representing the accused include those charged at "checkpoints", those charged who are drinking (but not operating) in a parked vehicle and those whom the police mistakenly have believed exhibited the classic characteristics of intoxication (i.e., slurred speech, watery eyes and a disheveled appearance) because they were either ill, infirm, or because they had ingested legal, prescription or over-the-counter medication, such as cough medicine. DWI is a serious crime with serious and dramatic long-term ramifications if not handled properly. Although no Attorney can guarantee any specific result, a skilled and/or experienced attorney like Mr. McMillan can give an accused the best chance of beating these serious charges.
