Evesham NJ DWI Lawyer

Mount Laurel DWI Attorney First Offense
Getting behind the wheel after having a few drinks can have devastating effects on your life. Whether you are a New Jersey resident or just visiting, the penalties for a DWI / DUI conviction can be more severe than many felony crimes. If convicted, even a first time offender will be facing a lengthy license suspension, ignition interlock device installation and possible incarceration. What is even more concerning for those individuals charged with drunk driving is the fact that DWI and DUI charges cannot be plea bargained. Unlike other traffic or criminal charges, the Municipal Prosecutor will not offer you a reduced penalty or downgraded charge simply by showing up. Instead, you will need the skills and expertise of a Burlington County DWI Attorney to find the weaknesses in the case. If you or a family member have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated, contact the Evesham DWI Lawyers at Proetta, Oliver & Fay. Our firm has handled thousands of DWI / DUI cases throughout New Jersey, including municipal courts like Bordentown, Burlington, Evesham, Medford, Mount Laurel, Southampton, Westampton and Bass River.

Medford NJ DWI Charges N.J.S.A. 39:4-50

If you are looking up the law for NJ Driving While Intoxicated, look no further than N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. Because the law is found under title 39, it is considered a traffic violation and not a criminal offense (certain other states treat drunk driving as a criminal violation). These cases rely predominantly upon two things (1) Proof of Operation and (2) Proof of Intoxication. For proof of intoxication, the Municipal Prosecutor will rely upon two things: (1) Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and/or (2) Breathalyzer/Alcotest Results. Each of these forms of proving intoxication are highly scrutinized and require that the officers be certified and trained in performing the tests. Our firm has had success in suppressing these pieces of evidence based on procedural defects and evidentiary issues. For more information and a complimentary case evaluation, contact our office at (609) 850-8284.
