Wisner & Wisner LLP, The DWI Defense Attorneys, have a law practice devoted solely to representing the citizen accused of Alcohol Influenced Operating Offenses. We limit our law practice to DWI Defense, Vehicular Crimes, and Appellate Advocacy. Our law firm is based in Rochester, NY, however we routinely handle cases in Buffalo, Syracuse and the surrounding communities.
For over 26 years Todd J.W. Wisner has successfully represented those accused of Alcohol Influenced Operating Offenses. A graduate from McQuaid Jesuit High School and Denison University, he then worked in the litigation department at Squadron, Ellenoff, Pleasant & Lehrer (now Hogan & Hartson LLP) in New York City for senior partner Elliott Sagor and former SEC Chair Ira Lee Sorkin. He then worked in the litigation department at Silver, Golub & Teitell for senior partner Richard Silver on medical malpractice cases in Stamford, Connecticut.
Actively involved in contesting the DWI laws, Todd J.W. Wisner has challenged the constitutionality of the suspension pending prosecution statute; the calibration of the BAC Datamaster; and the admissibility of the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Standardized Field Sobriety Test. Wisner & Wisner LLP is actively challenging not only the laws but how they are applied to the citzen accused. The change in the blood alcohol level in New York to .08 BAC has raised new issues concerning the viability of the statute.
Mr. Wisner has represented individuals having a variety of careers including: college professors, airline pilots, college administrators, teachers, nurses, commercial drivers with CDL licenses, small business owners, corporate CEO's, military personnel, ROTC students, European foreign nationals, Canadian foreign nationals, hearing impaired drivers, police officers, and construction workers.
