If you have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) you, unfortunately, are subject to some of the most severe and rigidly imposed penalties of any of the many driving offenses in the State of New Jersey. Statewide mandated plea bargaining restrictions prevent Prosecutors from allowing individuals charged with DWI/DUI and related offenses to receive the benefit of reduced or negotiated plea arrangements in their case. It is therefore essential that you hire an experienced and reputable Attorney who practices primarily in the area of Driving While Intoxicated matters to handle your case in order to explore all possible defenses that may be available to you in your matter. Penalties for violations of DWI pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 carry extremely severe penalties even for a first time offender. The particular blood alcohol level (BAC) associated with your matter may lead to driver’s license suspension up to 12 months, 30 days in the county jail and/or possible installation of an ignition interlock device in any vehicle that you own or operate. With former Municipal Prosecutors from 25 towns throughout New Jersey, The Attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan Marshall possess the experience and expertise to provide you with a thorough and insightful assessment of your DUI matter.
