Rutherford Bergen County New Jersey DWI Attorneys
NJ Drunk Driving Lawyers
From the moment of the initial consultation right up until the conclusion of the case, we focus on getting the best possible outcome, oftentimes resulting in an acquittal. We get a complete background of our clients, including driving records, medical records, dental records and even mental health records if necessary. We demand from the prosecutor all reports, notes, audio and video tapes, Alcotest documents, officer training certificates, and (where applicable) laboratory case files, and conduct a thorough investigation of the matter.
We challenge the probable cause for the stop. We challenge the probable cause to administer standardized field sobriety tests and we challenge the probable cause for the arrest. We review all documents, scientific and otherwise, as well as the tapes with the finest experts in the field. We request that judges sign our prepared orders giving the prosecution time limitations for the production of those items to which we are entitled. We seek relief when those orders are violated and our client’s speedy trial rights are compromised. We challenge the validity of any prior DWI convictions and often convince the court to vacate a prior conviction, limiting our client’s potential loss of license. Those are just a few examples of the approaches that we take when defending a driver accused of driving while under the influence. We are very satisfied with our record of success, especially when we exhaust all avenues to achieve those results.

N.J. DWI Defense
In New Jersey, Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is against the law. In order for the prosecution to satisfy its burden of proof and convict you of DWI, the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the necessary and proper evidence that you were driving while under the influence.
If you are stopped while operating a motor vehicle for suspicion of drunk driving, the officer may compel you to participate in field sobriety testing and take a breath test on the Alcotest machine. Under the law, legal intoxication is established if your blood alcohol level is 0.08% or higher. Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) is more subjective, and relies upon the officer’s observations and interpretations of your psycho-physical state and your level of impairment. Our experts review and evaluate the manner in which the SFST was conducted and interpreted, and also analyze the procedure utilized by the police in obtaining breath, blood and/or urine samples. We leave no stone unturned in our effort to uncover critical flaws in the State’s case.
