Five municipalities in Morris County have entered into a shared services agreement to have all their DWI charges heard in the Dover Joint Municipal Court. If you have been charged with DUI in Dover, Rockaway Borough, Mine Hill, Mount Arlington or Wharton, this is where your offense shall be heard. Your course of action is the same irrespective of which of these communities you were arrested, namely, to find the most skilled DWI lawyer you can find. It will not come down to political juice or similar factors as plea bargaining is outlawed in resolving tickets and summonses filed under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. Your attorney will have to have the tools to persuade the judge that the case against you is fatally defective and cannot be proven otherwise there is no avoiding the mandatory penalties for DWI. The knowledge and experience possessed by your representative is therefore a huge factor in whether you are convicted or acquitted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
