Crimes can be classified as felonies which are serious offenses, or misdemeanors such as petty theft. Sullivan & Attanasio provides criminal defense for the following crimes;
DUI/DWI: Those charged with Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated (DUI/DWI) are prosecuted both criminally and administratively. The accused must face a judge in criminal court along with a hearing officer from the Department of Motor Vehicles. This administrative per se hearing determines the suspension of the driver’s license.
