Although most individuals are aware that there are serious penalties for those convicted of DWI in New Jersey, they fail to realize just how severe the consequences can be until they have already been arrested. It can also be shocking to learn that there is no provision for work licenses or any other ability to maintain your privilege to operate a motor vehicle if you plead or are found guilty of DWI. This is the primary reason why it is so fundamentally important to hire a skilled DWI attorney to defend you. The lawyers at our firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F.

Mt. Laurel Municipal Court DUI Charges
Mount Laurel is one of the busiest municipalities in Burlington County when it comes to DWI charges. Over the last one year period reported by the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts, over 200 DUI offenses were filed by members of its police department and State Troopers patrolling the approximately 7.5 miles of the NJ Turnpike surrounding Exit 4, including the Fenimore Cooper rest area. If you were arrested anywhere within the township on suspicion of drunk driving your charge will be heard in the Mount Laurel Municipal Court. Both the prosecutor and judge will be limited in what they may allow in terms of resolution of your DWI case as plea bargaining is strictly prohibited. You will have to present a genuine issue of material fact concerning the state’s case in order for the court to allow anything other than an outright plea of guilty.
DUI Attorneys in Mount Laurel, New Jersey
It is all too frequent for individual like you to assume that there is nothing that can be done to eliminate a DWI, DUI or driving under the influence of drugs offense. In reality, however, our firm is successful in a significant percentage of cases in our efforts to dismiss a violation. Results like these are not commonplace for all attorneys because the training and commit we possess is actually rare among those who hold themselves out as potential representatives for your case. Our certification on the Alcotest, something which is probably shared by as few as fifty other lawyers in the state, allows us to identify shortcomings in terms of the breath test. Similarly, since our lawyers are certified instructors in DUI field sobriety tests they almost always possess far superior training than the arresting Mt. Laurel police officer who administered the roadside tests. This allow us to exploit technicalities in the administration of those tests to invalidate an arrest or, alternatively, use of the results as a secondary basis for proving a DWI. The combination of these skills and our commitment to achieving results translates into a success rate that is typically much higher than the norm.
