Former New Jersey DWI Prosecutors
The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall has experience representing individuals charged with a DWI, DUI or refusal, while having a minor in their vehicle. This fact is really just common sense when you consider that we are the largest and most credentialed DWI defense team in the State. Three lawyers on our defense staff possess dual certification, having been certified on both the Alcotest Breath Test Machine, as well as in the other basis for providing a driving while intoxicated offense—Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. There are probably less than 10 attorneys in the state that have dual certification and at least half of them are at our firm. We are also former prosecutors in over 25 municipalities, including high volume courts like Wall Township NJ. We are highly experienced and undertaken specialized training because we take defending drunk driving charges very serious. Our New Jersey DWI defense attorneys will insure that your interests are protected and that the best possible outcome is reached.
Defense Attorneys for DUI with Minor in Vehicle
A drinking and driving charge involving operation while a minor is present is typically accompanied by a separate disorderly persons charge under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.15. This is a rare exception that a motor vehicle violation is actually considered a criminal offense. This charge carries an additional six month drivers license suspension in the event of a finding of guilt to driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence while a minor was present in the vehicle. There are also additional fines, community service, surcharges, and jail exposure, which are triggered when a drunk driving offense is committed with a minor in the vehicle.
Our office can effectively defend you and provide every opportunity to mitigate any negative result, for example, convincing the court to run any license suspensions concurrent when a conviction cannot be avoided. Please contact the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall for a free initial consultation and one of our DWI defense lawyers will assist you.
