Charged With driving drunk? A NJ DWI Lawyer Will Help
Are you facing a NJ DUI charge? Tough New Jersey laws and punishments for DUI can change your life. However, you do have multiple options allowed to you by the state. A NJ DUI lawyer will get you back on the right track.
There is hope for avoiding a DWI conviction. Even though DWI laws in NJ are strict, a good lawyer will be able to identify when police have not respected appropriate procedure. A DUI attorney can be a large advantage to you during the process of fighting DUI allegations.
Knowing NJ DWI and DUI Regulations
When somebody is stopped for suspicion of drinking and driving in NJ, law enforcement has the ability to conduct a standardized field sobriety test (SFST) to check the driver for a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit of 0.08%. and a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or above. A reading that is 0.08% or higher means a DWI charge.
Defense attorneys from Villani & DeLuca have been protecting clients from illicit DWI claims since 1996. Partner and founding member of Villani & DeLuca, Carmine Villani, Esq. will make sure you develop a case against the charges thanks to his experience handling DUI charges in NJ. Mr. Villani has been fighting for clients with DWI charges since the law firm opened its doors in 1996.
Studied in Alcotest® and Breathalyzer
just a small number of lawyers in NJ have been trained in the Draeger Alcotest® 7110, but Mr. Villani is one of those attorneys. The Alcotest® is the only breath test permitted by police in New Jersey.
Standardized Field Sobriety Testing
A field sobriety test should not be the only evidence taken to ascertain if someone was inebriated beyond the legal limit. But, it can provide reasonable cause for a police officer, which leads to the use of a blood alcohol test. Mistakes do take place despite training to conduct standardized field sobriety testing. You will have a quality case against DUI charges if law enforcement did not perform a field sobriety test correctly prior to arresting and charging you.
Understanding Drug Recognition Evalutation
The number of drug-related driving arrests are rising in New Jersey. Your attorney should be specifically educated in drug recognition evaluation (DRE) in the event of a DUI that was not related to drinking. Mr. Villani is extremely acquainted with the correct procedure of the DRE and will use any wrong steps taken by law enforcement to help you win your case.
Charges and Penalties NJ DUI Lawyers Will Dispute
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 frequent requirement for a DUI conviction. Your blood alcohol concentration and number of DWI arrests will factor heavily in the penalties you receive.
False DWI charges have been known to happen. If you think that you were charged without cause, look for a DUI law firm that serves Beachwood, New Jersey. Our lawyers will help you strategize your defense.
Breath Test Refusal
The implied consent law of NJ means that you cannot refuse a breath test if there is reason to believe that you have been drinking and are now operating a vehicle. Refusing to submit to a breath test creates harsh penalties in New Jersey, with a first offense of breath test refusal resulting in a minimum license revocation of seven months. Breath test refusal can even end in a poorer outcome than a DWI conviction.
Law enforcement needs to have probable cause in order to ask people to complete a breath or blood test. Your Villani & DeLuca DWI attorney will be able to demonstrate whether probable cause was in fact established and whether a medical issue stopped you from accepting a breath test.
Did law enforcement recently stop your vehicle at a DUI road block? You would have been required to answer questions about your identity and home address. If they wanted to know more information, you did not have to respond.
Were you abused at a DWI road block that led to charges for driving under the influence? There are a few restrictions on representatives of the law and procedures that have to be followed.
