Irvington DUI Attorney

Its sounds crazy but police in Irvington normally have more important things to do than look for suspected drunk drivers because the city has some of the highest crime rates in the entire state. However, like most large cities, Irvington is home to several major highways that feed into the city such as I-78, the Garden State Parkway, Rt. 124 and Rt. 509 and these highways are heavily patrolled by New Jersey State Troopers who are constantly on the look out for drivers suspected of driving while intoxicated. If you have been ticketed for DWI in Irvington, New Jersey the most important decision you will make is the attorney you choose.
