New Jersey DUI and DWI arrests are extremely serious cases. The penalties for a conviction can be severe. The driver’s license suspension ranges from a mandatory three month to 12-month suspension for a first offense to ten years for a third or subsequent offense. Each conviction may subject an individual to incarceration in the county jail – up to 30 days for a first offense, up to 90 days for a second offense, and a mandatory 180 days for a third or subsequent offense.
If you have received a summons for Driving While Intoxicated in New Jersey, you need an experienced NJ DWI Lawyer. Please contact my office immediately. I have been handling NJ DWI cases throughout NJ for over 17 years, and understand how to defend DWI cases in NJ in order to effectively protect your rights, your driving privileges, avoid interlock devices, and jail time. The penalties for DWI in NJ are some of the most serious in the country, and plea bargaining is not permissible. You need a serious New Jersey DWI attorney to properly defend against these charges.
An experienced attorney will recognize that there are many ways to defend against DWI charges in New Jersey, including challenging the reason for the motor vehicle stop in the first place, attacking the road side field sobriety tests administered by the officer, and examining whether the Alcotest machine was properly calibrated. Even more important, an aggressive attorney will be able to contest blood-alcohol content results from the Alcotest and can suppress the readings in certain situations so they cannot be used against you in Court. Only a NJ DWI attorney who is familiar with the numerous requirements laid out by the NJ Supreme Court for the admissibility of breath testing results can effectively challenge a DWI prosecution and represent you in Court to protect your driver’s license.
Do not sell yourself short by thinking, “I cannot afford a NJ DWI defense lawyer.” The price you pay for a DWI conviction exceeds hiring a NJ DWI attorney. The cost for an experienced attorney is far less than the fines, penalties, surcharges, insurance costs and collateral expenses for the suspension of driving privileges from a DWI conviction. The value of a qualified DWI attorney far outweighs the costs associated with a conviction. Please contact me immediately for strategy session so I can review your case and see if we can obtain a dismissal of your NJ DWI charges, or achieve a downgrade to a reduced license suspension, fines, penalties and surcharges.
Do not trust your case to any attorney. Just like you would not want a brain surgeon to operate on your heart, you do not want an attorney who does not specialize in NJ DWI cases to represent you in Court.
