DWI

How does the New Jersey DWI Law Work And How Can I Possibly Get Charges Against Me Dropped?

New Jersey DWI laws and statutes are complex and the penalties for a DWI conviction in New Jersey are among the harshest in the nation. You need a lawyer who will listen to your unique situation and make the proper decision about weather you should plead guilty or contest the charges.

If you are convicted of a DWI the penalties are mandatory, and plea bargaining (i.e. reducing the DWI charge to a lesser offense) is not allowed under New Jersey State Laws.

You have been through an embarrassing and demoralizing ordeal of being arrested. While a DWI is merely a motor vehicle violation, most people feel like they have been treated like criminals during their arrest and detention in jail. You may be stressed and worried about the consequences of your arrest. And you may be tempted to get this situation behind you as quickly as possible

We will look over the specific facts of your case to determine what your best options are. While it is often best to please guilty there are times when there is a good chance of having the charges dropped. You want to make sure you are not so anxious for a quick resolution that you give up your rights. A DWI charge is not a conviction. You are innocent until proven guilty. Some judges will take into consideration your current life situation that may have led to your DWI charges. You may have been experiencing stress from work, from a marriage, or you may be in recovery from alcoholism. This may be your first offence or there may be extenuating circumstances such as prescription drug interactions or a medical condition.

We prepare a defense that gives you the best possible chance of having the charges dropped or having the judge rule a not guilty verdict.

Most Defendants charged with DWI plead guilty or no contest. Before you decide to enter a guilty plea you need to be aware that you are forfeiting many of your rights as a defendant. Ultimately this may be the best course of action for you but many times its not the right solution. Often DWI lawyers will push you in this direction because they do not want to take the time and effort to defend you. A guilty plea is a quick way out but it may not be in your long term best interests.
