The Potential Consequences of a DWI in New Jersey
DWI convictions have serious, life-changing implications. Even a first offense DWI conviction can put you behind bars and cause you to lose your driver’s license. Without a valid license, you might find it difficult to get to work. Worse yet, with a drunk driving conviction on your driving record, you might not be able to secure gainful employment in the future. All of this is in addition to the social stigma that is often attached to drunk driving. In the Internet era, practically everyone has access to personal information such as arrest records and DWI/DUI convictions. Multiple DWI convictions can result in enhanced penalties, including up to six months in jail and suspension of your driver’s license for as long as 10 years. Moreover, when you finally are allowed to drive, you may be required to install ignition interlock devices on all of your vehicles.

Ways to Defend Against DWI Charges in New Jersey
Do not assume that you have no hope of fighting DWI charges simply because your breath test reading was over the legal limit of .08 percent. The breath testing machine is far from perfect, and police officers have been known to make mistakes when administering the test. A knowledgeable DWI lawyer who understands how the breath testing device operates may be in position to help you challenge your breath test results.
In addition to having former municipal and county prosecutors on staff, our legal team includes one of the only attorneys in New Jersey to be certified in the operation and maintenance of the Draeger Alcotest 7110. The Alcotest is the breath testing device used by all NJ law enforcement officers to measure the blood alcohol content of suspected drunk drivers. Our intimate knowledge of the mechanics of this device gives us a huge edge when it comes to contesting the results of your breath test. We’ve been successful in challenging the admissibility of breath test results in countless DWI cases, allowing our clients to beat their DWI charges and avoid losing their licenses.

Determining whether your constitutional rights were violated will require the assistance of a lawyer who understands the nuances of DWI law in New Jersey.
