DWI Laws in New Jersey
In New Jersey, an officer may use the following observations and indicators during a DWI traffic stop to conclude whether or not you are intoxicated while driving:
- Driving patterns
- Physical appearance
- Field sobriety tests
- Chemical tests
A refusal to comply with sobriety tests may also be reason enough to place an individual under arrest for DWI. New Jersey law states that anyone with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or more is presumed to be driving under the influence.
Whether this is your first DWI arrest or you have prior DWI convictions a lawyer from our firm has the experience necessary to achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Contact our New Jersey firm and speak with a DWI lawyer free of charge regarding your legal options.
DWI Defense – How Can a Lawyer Help?
A New Jersey DWI lawyer from our firm may be able to negotiate the fines and penalties relating to the charges. He or she may also be able to get your charges entirely dismissed depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your arrest. Conditions under which your DWI lawyer may be able to dismiss your charges include:
- The traffic stop was executed illegally – The arresting officer must have a valid reason for initially pulling you over
- Inaccurate test results – This can be due to a rising BAC (blood alcohol content), improper interpretation of field sobriety tests and blood, urine, or breathalyzer tests
- There is a lack of evidence – The arresting officer’s assumptions regarding intoxication must be based in fact such as blood alcohol content or the officer’s subjective field observations based on experience.
Our attorneys will also take into consideration any prior DWI charges, past criminal charges or arrests when preparing your defense. Though not a certainty, those individuals with a clean record are usually in a better position to negotiate with the court regarding fines, jail time and other penalties resulting from a DWI arrest. However, our New Jersey attorneys have had extensive experience representing clients with prior legal incidents, and in every case strive to provide these clients with as many options as possible.
