Summary

Hello! I'm Mike Cyr, an Ithaca DWI Lawyer at NEWMAN & CYR. We are a law firm based in Ithaca, NY and our practice focuses on DWI defense, criminal defense, and traffic-related matters. I hope you enjoy my blog and videos --you can always ask me a question. I represent people throughout the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY. I also represent college students at Ithaca College, Cornell University, and SUNY Binghamton with regularity. My personal defense philosophy is "past, present, and future" --i.e. minimize the charges, fight the case, and protect the future. Attorney Larry Newman (of counsel) and I work together to ensure our clients have the most complete and thorough representation possible. We believe in the big three C's. Communication, Collaboration, and Cooperation. I went to Ithaca College and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. Then, I attended law school in Boston. I enjoy trying cases and creating a story for the judge & jury. Storytelling is the most important part of trying any case. I'm licensed in Massachusetts, Maine and New York. I've been on both sides of the fence --so to speak. I've worked in the Boston prosecutor's office and I've defended people charged with crimes in both Massachusetts and upstate New York. My wife and I moved to Ithaca in 2013 and are loving every minute. I love what I do. If you have any questions about your situation, give me a call, shoot me an email or fill out the form on our website, and I'll be happy to talk to you.
