DWI / DUI
New Jersey is one of the few states where a first offense for drunk driving is a traffic violation, rather than a criminal offense. This does not mean that the consequences are not serious. Fines and driver’s license suspensions are common for drunk driving convictions. At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in Bergen County, New Jersey, we are committed to helping people minimize the consequences of DUI / DWIs.Informed DUI Lawyers
One of the greatest risks that people charged with driving under the influence face is losing their driver’s license. A conviction for a DUI results in a mandatory driver’s license suspension, and New Jersey does not issue work permits in DUI cases. In addition, a DUI conviction can result in stiff fines, surcharges, jail time, and increased insurance premiums. While fighting a DUI may seem expensive, not fighting a DUI can be devastating.
We do everything that is allowed under the law to minimize the consequences of a DUI. We challenge every aspects of the prosecutor’s case, from the initial stop to the results of the breathalyzer. We regularly work with a former New Jersey State police officer to investigate the circumstance of the stop and the procedures the arresting officer followed. We also investigate the results of the on-site breathalyzer, as well as the results of any blood samples that were taken.
Our attorneys understand how police handle and, in some cases, mishandle DUI/DWI cases. We are dedicated to protecting our client’s interests. In cases where the initial stop and breathalyzer were preformed accurately, we work with prosecutors to have charges reduced to a non-alcohol related offence. We are committed to ensuring that the affects on our clients of a DUI stop and arrest are as minimal as possible.Contact Our Bergen County DUI Lawyers
