Choosing The Right NJ DWI Attorney Is Your Best Option
Driving while intoxicated (“DWI”) charges are very serious whether your case involves alcohol or drugs. The primary reason is because New Jersey imposes stiff penalties for those who are found guilty for driving under the influence, including a driver’s license suspension, thousands of dollars in financial consequences, and jail. And given the fact that there is no plea bargaining of DUI cases in this state, the most important thing you can do to avoid a conviction is to select the very best dwi attorney you can afford.
Hire New Jersey’s Largest DWI Defense Firm
At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our statewide DWI/DUI defense team is the largest in New Jersey and also possesses exceptional credentials. At least three (3) of our defense attorneys are former drunk driving prosecutors, including one who was also the DWI instructor at the police academy. We are so serious about developing our DUI defense skills that we have purchased our own Draegar Alcotect 7110 (“Alcotest”), the machine that you probably performed your breath test on. Most of the attorneys at the firm are dual certified, meaning that they are not only among the fifty or so who are certified like the police on the Alcotest but are also one of the approximately ten who are certified in Field Sobriety Testing. Two of the lawyers are even certified as instructors in Field Sobriety Testing. The point of all of this is that there are very few in New Jersey that have the qualification to defend your DWI or refusal charge like the staff at our firm.
Skilled DWI Attorneys To Protect Your License & Freedom
You may be finding all of this stressful and/or intimidating. This is only understandable given the impact that a DWI conviction can have on your life. Irrespective of what is going through your head, we promise you that your sole mission right now should be identifying the most qualified lawyers to defend you. You will need skilled representation if you don’t want your license suspended or to be subjected to the other consequences that come with a conviction. Make no mistake about it, there will be no help from the police nor prosecutor in court as their obligation is to convict you and impose the penalties required under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. If you want to continue with your life without having to endure the penalties for refusing the breath test or driving while intoxicated, you will therefore need to successfully challenge the case against you. Our attorneys can help you contest whether there was:
- A valid traffic violation to support the motor vehicle stop
- Proper basis to conclude that you failed the roadside field sobriety tests (e.g. tests were those which are acceptable for use in court, there were proper instructions, and the scoring was accurate)
- Reasonable suspicion of intoxication to support an arrest
- Implied consent form and rights properly administered
- Protocol for breath test followed
- Probable cause and/or a warrant exists in the event of a blood draw
- Chain of custody supported
We know how to identify these and other issues in a DUI case and this is the key to an effective defense as the court cannot permit a dismissal or downgrade otherwise. The skilled staff of DWI/DUI attorneys have the training, knowledge, and time tested skills to achieve an acquittal. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall have over 100 years of collective experience and are prepared to battle for you.
