DWI Drunk Driving

Experienced DWI Defense From The Beginning To The End Of Your Case

For those facing a DWI or DUI charge, there is a lot of concern about your future, your driver’s license and even the possibility of losing your job or serving jail time. It is one of the most serious traffic violations in New Jersey. As the anxiety mounts, it is important to remember that, in most cases, a drunk driving ticket in New Jersey is a traffic offense. You are entitled to due process and legal representation to defend yourself and have the ticket changed or nullified as appropriate. When you enter our office, we will go over your case, answer questions and outline expectations and evidence so you know what to expect.

The Evidence Is Not Foolproof

Like any other citation, you can contest drunk driving. Field sobriety tests, breath tests and officer observation commonly make up the evidence. These types of evidence are subject to failure or misinterpretation. Human error, biased or inattentive observation, and mechanical failure are a few common reasons why evidence gathered on the side of the road may not be admissible in court. Blood and urine tests are often requested in cases involving DWI and driving under the influence of drugs (DUID). The results of those tests can also be contested in court.

Different DWI Sentences

We will defend your DWI case and seek a result that meets your personal needs. DWI punishment varies significantly depending on the circumstances of the event. Depending on evidence and severity of a violation, the penalty may include jail time, monetary fines, a license suspension or community service. In addition to these consequences, New Jersey recently enacted a new law that requires the installation of an ignition interlock device in the vehicle of first-time offenders whose blood alcohol content (BAC) was .15% or more, and all repeat drunk driving offenders.
