Cranbury DUI Attorney
Cranbury writes up a significant number of Middlesex County DWI tickets each year. If you or a loved one has been pulled over and subsequently failed or refused to submit to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test or Alcotest issued by a Cranbury or NJ state police officer, then you should understand that a DWI ticket in New Jersey is a serious and complicated matter. It is important that you educate yourself about the penalties and consequences while putting yourself in the best position to beat the charges that you face. New Jersey has among the strictest DWI and DUI laws in the nation. Contributing factors to the severity of NJ DWI laws include 1) That the state does not offer any plea-bargaining for DWI charges; 2) If convicted, you will lose your license for a mandatory period of time up to 12 months even for a first-time offender; and 3) You can face additional mandatory penalties such as the installation of an ignition interlock device and mandatory drunk driving classes through the IDRC. Experience is paramount when it comes to properly defending and beating drunk driving charges in NJ. William A. Proetta is one of a handful of lawyers in the entire state that holds dual-certification in the operation and maintenance of the Alcotest 7110 machine (the very mechanism used by police to gauge BAC) as well as instructor certification in Standard Field Sobriety Testing in accordance with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This places the attorneys at William Proetta Criminal Law in a powerful position to defend DWI cases because we utilize our expertise in focusing upon the small technical mistakes often made by officers when they engage in DWI arrests.

DWI Arrests in Cranbury, New Jersey
The only way to beat the serious charges you face is to challenge the state’s case against you. At William Proetta Criminal Law we meticulously analyze the prosecution’s discovery to pinpoint technicalities and inconsistencies within the evidence against you. For example, we have gotten many clients’ Alcotest readings suppressed by following that the police did nor follow proper protocol when administering the test. Such a suppression of results in dramatically lowering the suspension period and can even lead to a “Not Guilty” ruling. Whether you are facing your first Cranbury DWI charges, second offense, or third offense, contact our office at (732) 659-9600 for a free initial consultation to lay out a customized case strategy for your specific needs.
