Knowledgeable New York DUI/DWI Attorney Protects Drivers' Rights


Throughout New York, law enforcement officials have been expanding efforts to crack down on drunk driving offenses. Being convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated can have serious consequences, including loss of license, higher insurance costs, heavy fines and jail time. David Wade Attorney at Law has the knowledge necessary to overcome the evidence against you, and the ability to help you attain the best possible outcome.


I understand that good people can make mistakes. I strive to satisfy my clients' emotional, financial and legal needs by zealously representing your interests at every turn. I am knowledgeable about complex New York DUI laws, and analyze every aspect of your case from the initial traffic stop to Breathalyzer tests to build your defense. I know what the prosecution needs to get a conviction, and I challenge the evidence against you with the skill I have developed through real-world experience. I work hard to make sure that you get the respect you deserve and the results you desire.


- If you have been pulled over by the police, there are several ways that you can help yourself:

- Do not be intimidated by the police. If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Don't give them that opportunity. Remaining calm and being polite are good ways to ensure that police officers leave you alone.

- Clean out your glove box. Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be easily misinterpreted as intoxication. Keeping the glove box or center console neat and clean allows you to swiftly grab your identification and present it to a police officer.

- Do not let the police search your car. Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction. Do not allow the officer to perform a search without a warrant.

- Take the sobriety test. Many DUI defendants have been found not guilty due to a malfunctioning breath analyzing machine or an improperly administered blood or urine test. Also, you may still blow under the legal limit.

- Get a blood test after release. Alcohol detection devices can be unreliable and malfunction. Don't go to jail because of a broken machine. It's a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) with a blood test after arrest. At trial, your attorney can use that evidence to raise possible defenses.

David Wade

David Wade Attorney at Law

I graduated from Greece Arcadia High School in 2000. I am a graduate of the University of Dayton School of Law. Before attending UDSL I was an honor student at Utica College of Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Arts in History.

In 2009 I was employed by the New York State Attorney General's Office as a Paralegal and gained extensive research and writing skills. I handled tort defense cases in the Court of Claims, and drafted motions and responses for Article 78 proceedings. I assisted in civil proceedings in New York Supreme Court against defrauders. After analyzing the facts of my cases I put together summaries as well as consult with experts and witnesses to help the attorneys put together a trial strategy.

I worked as a prosecutor in Tompkins County handling hundreds of cases including misdemeanors and violent felonies with significant media attention. Some of the cases I handled involved multiple defendants, and were very complex. I have handled all aspects of felony cases including grand jury, felony preliminary hearings, suppression hearings, voir dire, and trial. I handled my own post trial and appellate matters, researching and drafting briefs and responses. I am familiar with the long hours and preparation needed to win at trial.

Since 2012, I have worked primarily as a criminal defense attorney and have handled a wide variety of cases ranging from violent felonies and misdemeanors to traffic infractions. I practice in over 12 counties in Western and Upstate New York and currently serve on the Assigned Counsel panels in Monroe, Orleans, Livingston and Yates Counties. I have experience in transactional areas such as wills, power of attorney and real estate foreclosure.

I am married to a first grade teacher and reside in the Brockport School District. I love pets and am a huge sports fan. I attend and am a Parish Council member at St. Charles Borromeo in Greece. As an attorney I strive to educate my clients of all the variable that may affect their case. I rely on my reputation to communicate with Courts and Prosecutors so that the client will ultimately receive options with regard to their case disposition. I am dedicated to my clients and am willing to litigate any matter in order to achieve justice.
