DUI Lawyers In New Jersey

Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol / Drugs (DWI/DUI):

New Jersey DUI (Driving under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) arrests are highly serious matters. The penalties for a conviction can be devastating. The license suspension alone ranges from a mandatory 3-month to 12-month suspension for a first offense to 10 years for a third or subsequent offense.

Each conviction may subject an individual to incarceration in the county jail – up to 30 days for a first offense, up to 90 days for a second offense, and a mandatory 180 days for a third or subsequent offense.

What Qualifies As A DUI In New Jersey?

Under New Jersey’s DWI/DUI law pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, a charge for DWI/DUI is issued when a person operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of both. The state of intoxication in New Jersey is described as a “substantial deterioration or diminution of the mental faculties or physical capabilities.”

You can be convicted of DWI/DUI solely on the evidence gathered from the police officer observing your behavior and performance on any field sobriety tests that were administered.

It is for this reason that you may be given a ticket for a DWI/DUI even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is below the legal limit of .08.

Do You Need A DUI Lawyer?

An experienced DWI/DUI attorney can lead you through the complex issues involved in the process, including analyzing the police reports and other evidence from the pending prosecution to ensure that your legal rights are protected and reviewing your driving history to determine if relief is available to you from any prior convictions.

Hiring A DUI Lawyer

Many people believe — incorrectly — that “failing” a breath or a field sobriety test means that they are automatically guilty of a DWI/DUI. Studies have shown that these tests are not always reliable.

The DWI/DUI defense attorneys at Hoffman DiMuzio examine every piece of evidence gathered and all procedures used from the initial motor vehicle stop to the administration of the breath test or the collection of any blood or urine samples.

We fight to ensure that any errors or omissions made cannot be used against you. Issues with the calibration of the breath test machine will be addressed. In addition, challenges to the training and qualifications of the breath test operator as well as other challenges to the procedures used during the process will be closely reviewed and questioned.

We fight hard to suppress the breath/blood/urine test result obtained in your case in an effort to either completely avoid or significantly reduce any license suspension.

DWI/DUI charges are serious and can result in a loss of driving privileges. The DWI/DUI attorneys at Hoffman DiMuzio are here to examine the charges and evidence to protect your rights. Free consultations are available for all traffic and criminal matters, including DWI/DUI charges.
