Alcotest® and Breathalyzer Trained DWI Lawyers

New Jersey law enforcement has moved away from the former Breathalyzer and now uses the Draeger Alcotest® 7110, which is designed to detect blood alcohol percentages more precisely.

Understanding the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST)

The standardized field sobriety test (SFST) is not a scientific process and is not usually enough evidence to charge someone with operating a vehicle intoxicated. However, it can provide reasonable cause for a police officer, which requires the use of a blood alcohol test. Mistakes do take place even with training to conduct standardized field sobriety testing. If the test is administered wrong, it can refute the readings of a breath test and lead to charges being dropped.

Drug-Related DUI Arrests

The amount of drug-related driving detentions are rising in New Jersey. If you have been take into custody on suspicion of DUI, hiring a lawyer trained in drug recognition evaluation (DRE) is important to your case. Mr. Villani undertook the same training as New Jersey police officers in drug recognition evaluation (DRE), giving him exceptional insight into New Jersey DUI/DWI laws and how best to fight them.

How to Challenge Charges With an attorney

If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated, you will face the suspension of a license as well as a maximum fine of $1,000. Interlock ignition devices are also a common requirement for a DUI conviction. Multiple DUI convictions and a high blood alcohol percentage will lead to more severe consequences.
If your blood alcohol concentration reads above the legal limit, it is crucial to have a DUI lawyer on your side. A quality attorney knows that the Alcotest® reading is not always accurate.

Breath Test Refusal

The implied consent law of New Jersey means that you cannot refuse a breath test if there is reasonable cause. Refusing to submit to a breath test creates tough penalties in NJ, with a first offense of breath test refusal resulting in a minimum license revocation of seven months. Drivers found guilty of turning down a breath test can be subject to harsher penalties than people convicted of a DWI with a BAC reading of 0.10% or more.
Probable cause has to be established by a police officer prior to a breath test can be administered. An experienced DUI attorney can help assess if probable cause was founded or determine whether extenuating circumstances, such as a medical condition played a role in your refusal.

How DWI Checkpoints Work in NJ

Did law enforcement recently stop your vehicle at a DWI checkpoint? Officers might have asked you to hand over your license and ask you questions regarding who you are and where you live, which is in their prerogative. If they wanted to know more information, you did not have to respond.
The behavior of the officer who arrested you at a DUI checkpoint may be part of your legal strategy during a trial. A conviction might not occur if the police officer was not operating in agreement with the law.
