Contact Carteret NJ DWI Defense Lawyers to Discuss Your Case

New Jersey has some of the toughest DWI laws in the country. What makes NJ DWI laws so tough is that the state does not offer any plea-bargaining for DWI charges. Also, if convicted, you will lose your license for a mandatory period of time up to 12 months even for a first-time offender. You can face additional mandatory penalties such as the installation of an ignition interlock device and mandatory drunk driving classes through the IDRC. These are all factors pointing to the importance in seeking out and retaining an experienced DUI defense attorney to represent you. The only way to beat the serious charges is to challenge the state’s case against you. At the Law Offices of William Proetta Criminal Law we meticulously comb through the state’s discovery to uncover technicalities and problems with the evidence against you. For example, we often succeed in getting our clients’ Breathalyzer readings suppressed by showing the police officers did not follow proper protocol when administering the Breathalyzer. This victory leads to dramatically lowering the suspension period and can contribute to a not guilty finding. Whether you are facing a New Jersey out of state DWI, first or second offense DUI, or Refusal charges in Carteret, contact our office at (732) 659-9600 for a free initial consultation with an experienced Carteret DWI defense lawyer.
