Areas of Practice


In New York law enforcement has been making record arrests for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).  Prosecutors and judges routinely enforce penalties ranging from license suspensions, license revocations, the installation of ignition interlock devices and alcohol counseling depending on your exact charge and circumstances.

Obtaining a criminal record and losing one’s driving privileges can lead to tremendous hardship. Avoiding a criminal record and reinstating your driving privileges is possible with the right defense by Queens Criminal Court.

Our office has successfully represented individuals arrested for DWI/DUI under Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) 1192.1; 1192.2; 1192.3 and other charges in New York.

As a taxi driver my Hack license was suspended because of an arrest based on a false accusation. I couldn’t earn money for my family and I was in a really tough spot. Ali worked with me and offered me a payment plan. He fought hard, saved me from a criminal record and got me my license back.
