DWI Defense Lawyers in Allamuchy, NJ

Fight a Drunk Driving Charge in Warren County, NJ

Fight Illegal False DWI Arrest Allamuchy NJ

Fight DWI Arrest NJ

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is among the most serious and complex kinds of cases heard in municipal courts in New Jersey. On a first offense, a defendant can face up to 30 days in jail, fines and financial penalties of almost $4,000, license suspension of up to 12 months, and the requirement of having an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle for up to 12 months. A person facing DWI charges should obtain an attorney well versed in the intricacies of New Jersey law related to these kinds of charges if they want to ensure that their rights are protected and that they do not face unnecessary penalties.

The attorneys at our law firm have extensive experience fighting DWI and similar charges. Our attorneys are certified in the operation of the Alcotest machine and Standardized Field Sobriety Tests that are used by the police in order to prove guilt in DWI cases. As such, our lawyers have the knowledge and experience needed to fight each and every case in order to ensure that our clients’ rights are safeguarded against any improper conduct by law enforcement.

Allamuchy DWI Conviction Avoided with Suppressed Breath Test Results

In a recent case, our client was charged with DWI after having been stopped for a minor traffic violation. Following field sobriety tests where our client did quite well, he was placed under arrest and required to submit samples of his breath for testing as required by law. The Alcotest machine found our client’s breath to be just over the .08% limit for blood alcohol, so he was charged with DWI.

If convicted, our client would have been dropped from his employer’s insurance, resulting in his inability to perform the duties of him employment and likely termination from his job. Attorneys from our office appeared with our client in court on several occasions, whereupon we were able to convince the prosecutor and judge that dismissal of the DWI was the appropriate outcome for the case. We were able to get the Alcotest reading thrown out, whereupon the field sobriety tests were not enough for the prosecutor to justify taking the case to trial. As a result, we were able to save our client’s job and keep him from having a DWI conviction on his driving record. This outcome was yet another tremendous win for our client and for the law firm.

DWI Charges Dropped with Illegal Blood Sample Defense in Allamuchy NJ

Travis Tormey recently represented a client who was charged with a first offense DWI in Allamuchy Township, New Jersey. The client hailed from Canada, and he had been driving for several hours when he apparently fell asleep at the wheel and drove off the highway onto the shoulder. It was a one-car accident, and no one was injured as a result of the crash.

State troopers responded to the scene to make sure that everyone was alright. The driver was bleeding from his nose because his face had hit the steering wheel. Although the driver declined medical attention, the police and first aid responders insisted that he go to the hospital. The video evidence showed that at no point was there any discussion about alcohol consumption or being under the influence of alcohol. In fact, while the driver sat in the back of the trooper’s car to stay out of the rain, he chatted with the officer about his life, work, the weather in Canada, etc. It was clear from the evidence that the officer did not suspect Mr. Tormey’s client of being under the influence of any alcohol or drugs. Beyond that, the officer did not conduct any field sobriety tests, did not ask him to submit to a breath test, and declined to place him under arrest.

Later, when Mr. Tormey’s client was at the hospital, the hospital staff determined that he may have been under the influence of alcohol. At that point, they took samples of his blood for testing. This was an illegal search. The police had no right to force Mr. Tormey’s client to go to the hospital and then submit samples of his blood for testing because there was no probable cause to suspect that he was under the influence of alcohol. The video evidence made it very clear that, in fact, the state trooper did not suspect in any way that Mr. Tormey’s client was under the influence or that there was anything suspicious about the accident.

Based on the illegal search and the illegal taking of the client’s breath sample, Mr. Tormey filed a motion to suppress the blood evidence and to have the case thrown out. The prosecutor agreed with the motion, and the DWI charge was dismissed altogether. This case represented a major victory for our firm.
