DWI Defense Lawyers in Sparta New Jersey
If you have been arrested and issued a traffic summons for driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence in Sussex County or Warren County, you have options to fight your case. The first and most important step should be to call the knowledgeable DWI/DUI attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm to learn about the different types of DWI/DUI offenses, potential consequences, defense strategies, and collateral issues. For example, our clients are shocked to learn that there are no exceptions to a license suspension in New Jersey due to a second or subsequent DUI. In other words, whether it’s a first offense, second offense, third offense, or subsequent offense, your license may be suspended completely and there is no exception whatsoever to “just drive to work” or “just drive to school” during the suspension period. For a first offense, the rules have changed so the suspension applies until you install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle at your own expense. Additionally, charges for a first DWI with higher blood alcohol concentration entail enhanced penalties. Repeat offenders also face more punishments, including higher fines, longer license suspensions, and lengthier jail terms.
The DWI and DUI defense attorneys at our firm have handled literally thousands of DWI/DUI cases in municipal courts throughout New Jersey, including Warren and Sussex county. Additionally, we have attorneys on staff who are licensed operators of the Alcotest 7110 machine and certified to administer field sobriety tests. In other words, we know how to analyze DWI/DUI cases to determine if the police had probable cause to stop your vehicle in the first place, whether or not the field sobriety tests were conducted appropriately, and if the Alcotest 7110 machine was calibrated and used properly when you provided your breath sample.
DWI’s are considered traffic offenses in New Jersey and are not classified as criminal offenses. Despite the distinction, a DWI conviction can completely overturn your life and leave you with significant repercussions that could influence your social and professional livelihood. Aside from these effects, a conviction remains on your driving record and leads to other issues down the road, including significant fines and assessments owed to the State and Court.
