Arrested for Drunk Driving? We Are Ready to Defend You
If you or a loved one has been arrested for drunk driving in NJ, you need to speak with an experienced DWI/DUI lawyer as soon as possible. A first conviction will result in the loss of your driving privileges for at least 3 months, and potentially as long as 1 year. Add to this the fines, costs, surcharges and insurance points that will be assessed against you, and the impact can be devastating to your employment and your family budget. When you are stopped for a DWI or DUI offense, you will be observed, tested, evaluated and potentially video-taped. All of these types of evidence will be used by the prosecutor in an effort to convict you.
Obviously, the first thing a person who is stopped does is talk to the police officer and try to explain their way out of the situation. Unfortunately, most persons stopped for these types of offenses are already in a confused and agitated state, and it is easy for them to say the wrong thing and provide the police with additional observations of 'slurred speech', breath alcohol and belligerent comments about how unfair the officer is being.
I've Been Arrested, Now What Can I Do?
There are things you can do after you are arrested to potentially improve your chances of either beating the DWI charge or reducing the impact of the conviction, but they need to be started as soon as possible, not a week or two later. To learn the potential steps that may impact your case, you need to become educated in how these cases are handled by the police and prosecutor, and you need the assistance of an experienced DWI defense lawyer. DWI defense is both a science and an art, and in addition to a thorough understanding of the law and the facts of your particular case, frequently involve issues pertaining to physiology, electronics and psychometric evaluations.
