If you’ve ever searched for a service, you can understand when there are so many options out there, it creates confusion and frustration. Searching for an attorney is no different. However, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Introducing the DWI GUYS, the area’s best attorneys coming together to create an experienced and dedicated team that specializes on giving people a second chance.

When it comes to a Drug or Alcohol charge, there are many factors outside the law that matter. Things like license ramifications, employment status, and finances. We recognized that attorneys were representing a DWI case as if they were handling a simple traffic ticket. We hated to see that as a result, it was affecting peoples’ jobs, finances, freedom, and their abilities to be valued members of our society. That’s why we wanted to change the system.

Along the way, we are proud to have helped students, professionals, single parents, grandparents, nurses, CDL drivers, executives, and even police officers learn from their mistakes.

We are dedicated to reducing or dismissing your charges. Contact us today for a FREE case analysis.

A Proven Team that connects you with the right DWI Attorney

At the DWI GUYS, we create an attorney/client partnership which we feel leads to better communication, a better customer experience, and a potentially faster, better result.

Our process is simple:

  1. We have revolutionized how people connect with attorneys, and by doing so we help make decisions in hiring a DWI Attorney easier.
  2. We focus on finding the right attorney in the right budget that has experience overcoming the concerns that a client may have, and will work towards the goals that they have.
  3. We will allow clients to pay over time.
  4. We are intentionally different because if we don’t care or feel that we can’t help you, we won’t take your case. We advocate for the person, not the crime, we feel that having this approach results in the best possible result on the legal side of the case.

This approach and our knowledge over the sector provide our clients with the greatest satisfaction in having us represent them.

The best way to illustrate why our system works is to share our history.


Over 15 years ago, we found the government was using its unlimited amount of resources to convict people. Many times the government was forcing people to plead guilty to something that they either were not guilty of or something that would affect the rest of their life. As a result, we wanted to create a team that would hold the government accountable and protect those who made a mistake or where wrongfully accused.

Additionally, we also found that there was a severe problem with the level of representation provided surrounding drug and alcohol arrests. People were treating, and attorneys were representing people charged with DWI as if they were simple traffic tickets. As a result, we noticed that it was affecting peoples’ jobs, finances, freedom, and their abilities to be valued members of our society.

As a result, we decided to build a DWI Focused team that focused on advocating for good people. People who needed someone in their corner to advocate for them. People who wanted a second chance.

Whereas the same problems exist today, we are proud to say that we have helped more than 10,000 people. Many of these people that we helped are ordinary people like students, professionals, single parents, grandparents, nurses, CDL drivers, executives, and even police officers. We helped many by reducing the ramifications, winning their case, proving their innocent, or providing guidance in getting help with addiction.

What we have found is that if we help give people second chances, in most situations, they will do the right thing. They do the right thing by educating others as to the dangers of drinking and driving, which reduces others from making the same mistake and saving lives.

In 2016, the DWI GUYS brand and Tom Anelli decided to amicably part ways. The main reason the DWI GUYS brand decided to part ways was because Mr. Anelli was focused on marketing, not clients. We feel and still feel that it’s not genuine to call yourself a DWI attorney if you’re not actually in the court room defending people charged with a DWI all day every day. With the departure, we decided to focus on what built the DWI GUYS brand, a team of focused DWI attorneys, actually in the court room defending people.

Since that departure, we have grown to have developed the largest group of experienced DWI Attorneys ever assembled to handle a drug or alcohol offenses and continue to grow today.

In 2018, Nave Law Firm was created to bring additional legal oversight to every DWI case to ensure that the product for the DWI GUYS was to the highest in the legal sector. When creating this oversight, it was decided that the DWI GUYS would no longer take cases that involved the death of another individual. This decision was made not because of the inability to handle those types of cases, but because no one, including the DWI GUYS brand, should profit off of someone’s death. In doing so, we can focus more on our time and energy in helping people that may be innocent or need a second chance.

The 5 W’S of the dwi guy

WHO are the DWI GUYS?

The DWI GUYS are a team of attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants and advocates dedicated to understanding that mistakes happen and that people may need a little help rebuilding their lives after an arrest.

The attorneys that represent our clients have dedicated a large portion of their practice to the defense of drug and alcohol cases. The average legal experience for an attorney with the DWI GUYS is more than 10 years, and the total combined experience in New York is more than 200 years. Some of these attorneys are former or active judges, former prosecutors, or current/former police officers, and are experienced with both negotiations and trial work.


The primary goal of the DWI GUYS is to ensure that a client is protected throughout the duration of their case. The secondary goal is to ensure that we can help clients continue to be a contributing member of our society.

As a team, the DWI GUYS are committed to doing what is right by defending clients as strongly as possible, even when it may seem impossible, while still having the energy to reject the status quo that may come from any barriers when working for our clients. 

The DWI GUYS want to provide our clients with as many options as possible to ensure that their goals of representation are met and that any concerns they have are addressed. 

What are the Potential Defenses?

  • Improper Stop: The police did not have probable cause to stop you
  • Improper Detention: The police did not have probable cause to keep you
  • Improper Arrest: The police did not have probable cause to arrest you
  • Improper Performance: The police did not test your sobriety correctly
  • Un-timely Performance: The police did not time things correctly
  • Medical Issue: The police mistook your medical issue for alcohol impairment
  • Incorrect Judgment: The police concluded incorrectly 
  • Inflated Result: The BAC was not that high when you were driving
  • False Positive: The machine was tricked by something 
  • No Warnings: The police didn’t read you certain rights
  • No Refusal: You didn’t actually say no to taking the breath test


In the smallest of town and villages to the largest of counties throughout the entire State of New York, the DWI GUYS has attorneys in every County of New York.


You need the DWI GUYS on your side the moment you are accused of operating a vehicle under the influence of a drug or alcohol.


The DWI GUYS are intentionally built differently because the reality is, for most people needing a lawyer, the overall experience with most law firms are unpleasant.  Customer service is not a class in law school and attorneys are taught to focus on the law.  When it comes to a DWI charge, there are many factors outside the law that matter. Things like driver’s licenses, employment, and finances.  The DWI GUYS not only focus on the law, but also on what the client’s goals and concerns are.  As a result, the DWI GUYS intentionally try to be unique by striving to focus on the things that we can control.  We believe that when we care about our clients and control things like customer service and communication, we will obtain the best possible result with the legal side of the case.

Our loyalty is to our clients; we define loyalty as defending clients as strongly as possible even when it seems impossible with an unwillingness to abandon our clients, even during the worst of circumstances.  This starts from the moment a client contacts us, as we will only take a client’s case if we feel that we can help. If needed, we will even offer a payment plan so that someone doesn’t have to sacrifice the quality of a defense simply because of money.
