Mullica Township includes many different parts of southern New Jersey, including Sweetwater, West Egg Harbor, Weekstown, Elwood, Indian Cabin, Nesco, Amatol, Colwell, Dacosta, Devonshire, East Hammonton, New Columbia, Pleasant Mills, Speedway, Wescoatville, and Woodland. Additionally, part of Route 30, which connects Philadelphia, PA and many areas and southern New Jersey to the Atlantic City area and other popular New Jersey short points, also runs through Mullica Township. Therefore, even though much of Mullica Township is made of Pine Barrens lands, this area well traveled, especially in the summer. Throughout Mullica Township, local township police and NJ state police both patrol the roads and highways. With so many travelers passing through the area, DWI and DUI arrests occur quite frequently. If you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence, you could be up against charges that carry serious and expensive penalties. Even first-time offenders convicted of DWI or DUI charges are subject to harsh penalties in New Jersey, and N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 dictates that many of the applicable penalties are mandatory. Potential penalties include a driver’s license suspension as long as one year, requirements to install and maintain an ignition interlock device, and even jail time for as long as 30 days. Convicted offenders are also subject to considerable fines. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we are accessible 24/7 to review the facts of your case.

Arrested for DWI in Mullica NJ
Before arresting a driver for Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence, the authorities must have probable cause to believe the suspect was driving while intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance. If the authorities believe that you may be intoxicated or under the influence, you will probably be asked to undergo a set of Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’s). As you complete the tests, an officer will watch for clues that you might be intoxicated or impaired, in order to establish probable cause for a DWI or DUI arrest. The tests most frequently used to detect alleged impairment are the “Walk and Turn” test, the “One Leg Stand” test, and the “Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus” test, all of which are governed by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our powerful legal defense team boasts two attorneys trained as SFST instructors, a certification which only a handful of defense attorneys throughout New Jersey have achieved. With this unique qualification and our extensive knowledge of how the authorities will build their case against you, our defense team is well positioned to expertly guide you through the legal system and help you build the best possible defense against DUI or DWI charges. Another weapon frequently used against alleged drunk drivers is the breathalyzer test, which produces a reading indicating a driver’s alleged blood alcohol content, or BAC, at the time of the arrest. A driver’s alleged BAC is calculated by the Alcotest 7110 machine, which processes a breath sample from the driver in order to provide the BAC reading. While this can be a powerful tool and difficult to defeat in court, with years of experience defending DWI matters and handling BAC evidence issues, our powerful defense team is well prepared to pursue every available legal strategy on your behalf. With a winning combination of experience, training, and legal knowledge, our attorneys are often able to not only minimize the impact of a BAC reading on the outcome of your case, but even get this dangerous evidence, or your entire case dismissed.
At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, many of our attorneys have also served as municipal prosecutors throughout more than 25 New Jersey towns. This experience provides our powerful defense team with in-depth knowledge of how the New Jersey legal system works, which we will carefully and strategically apply in building your defense.
