Drunk Driving (DWI/DUI)

What is DWI, and What is Important to Know in New Jersey?

I am often asked as a New Jersey DWI Attorney if you can still drive if your license was suspended for DWI. You should, under no circumstances, be driving an automobile if your license is suspended. I advise clients as a New Jersey DWI Attorney that there are no hardship licenses in New Jersey. Penalties are enhanced, and can result in jail time and further suspension.

If you have had your license suspended for DWI, contact our experienced New Jersey DWI Attorney.

How Can a DWI be Proven in NJ?

I am often asked as a New Jersey DWI Traffic Stop Attorney how a DWI can be proven. A DWI can be proven from the readings of an Alcohol breathalyzer Test. They can also be proven through Psycho-Physical Tests. I advise clients as a New Jersey DWI Traffic Stop Attorney that these tests include an HGN Test, a Heal-to-Toe Walk Test, and a One-Legged Foot Raise Test. The HGN Test requires you to follow an object with your eyes, while your head remains in a fixed position. The HGN Test cannot be used to prove your guilt, but the other two tests can be used to prove your guilt.

If you have been arrested or charged with DWI, contact our experienced New Jersey DWI Traffic Stop Attorney.

I Blew Over a .08, I Must be Guilty, What Can We Do in NJ?

I am often asked as a Monmouth County DWI Attorney about what to do if you are pulled over and charged with DWI over .08. The police officer had to have stopped you for a legitimate motor vehicle violation. In terms of psycho-physical tests, the officer should be properly instructing you as to how to perform the tests. It will also be observed as to how well you performed these tests. I advise clients as a Monmouth County DWI Attorney that you will take an Alcohol Test at the police station to determine that your levels are accurate.

What Will Happen for a First Offense DWI for Alcohol and Drugs in New Jersey?

I was Pulled Over for Suspected DWI, Can They Give Me an Alcohol Test at Police Headquarters?

I was recently asked as a New Jersey DWI Attorney about having an alcohol test completed at police headquarters when being suspected of DWI. Just because an officer suspects that you were under the influence, that is not enough for him to take you down to the station in order to give you the alcohol test. In order for the officer to bring you down to the police station, he must have probable cause or a reasonable belief that you are under the influence of either alcohol or a drug. I advise clients as a New Jersey DWI Attorney that if you do not properly complete the psycho-physical tests given by the officer, they will have probable cause to administer the alcohol test.

If you have been arrested for DWI and are being given an alcohol test at police headquarters, contact our experienced New Jersey DWI Attorney.

What are the Penalties for Refusal of an Alcohol Test?

I am often asked as a New Jersey DWI Lawyer what goes on when refusing an alcohol test at a traffic stop. You have absolutely no right to refuse to take the alcohol test. You also don’t have the right to ask for an attorney prior to taking the test. It may be considered a refusal if you do not blow hard enough into the machine for it to take an accurate sample from you. I advise clients as a New Jersey DWI Lawyer that for a first offense, you are facing seven to twelve month loss of license plus monetary fines. You must also install an interlock ignition device in your vehicle. For a second violation of a refusal statute, you are facing a two-year loss of license, heavier fines, and the interlock ignition device. For a third offense, you are facing ten years loss of license, the interlock device, and heavier fines.

If you have refused a breathalyzer or alcohol test, contact our experienced New Jersey DWI Lawyer.
