When facing criminal indictable charges in the Superior Courts of New Jersey or petty disorderly persons and disorderly persons offenses in the municipal courts throughout New Jersey, you need a skilled attorney that is equipped to properly defend you. Our representation of our clients in the Superior Courts and municipal courts include:
.Criminal indictable offenses;
.Disorderly persons offenses and petty disorderly persons offenses;
.Refusal charges; and,
.Municipal court offenses and traffic violations.
When facing DWI charges, you need an attorney that has expertise in the
handling of your defense. We will review your case and determine if the
police had a legal basis to stop your vehicle and to arrest you. We will
also determine if the police had a legal basis to require you to submit to
the tests done at the side of the road and to the Breathalyzer tests done at
the police station. Because of our expertise in handling these DWI
charges, we routinely challenge the basis of the tests done at the side of
the road and challenge the Breathalyzer readings themselves. There are
many circumstances that may have been present at the time of the tests
being administered that serve as a basis to challenge the tests.
There are many legal issues that result in a challenge to the Breathalyzer
readings themselves, that includes the observations by the police officer,
the operability of the Breathalyzer machine and whether it is in working
order at present and whether it had been in proper working order
previously and whether it was deemed operable at the time that the
samples were taken of your breath. In addition, while the Supreme Court
of New Jersey previously determined that the Alcotest 7110 was reliable,
at present, there are legal challenges to be addressed as to the reliability
of the machine, based upon the data regarding the machines not being
properly maintained in theirdatabase.
If you are facing DWI charges as a result of drugs or other narcotics found
in your vehicle, you need an attorney that has the experience in being
successful in challenging the basis for charges of DUI based upon a DRE
evaluation and analysis. We will review and evaluate your case and
determine if the charges are warranted based upon the DRE evaluation
performed. We routinely challenge the findings of the police's DRE expert
and thus, challenge the basis for the DWI being issued to you.
