DUI Attorney in Fort Lee, New Jersey
Fort Lee Township is located in Northern New Jersey and is within very close proximity to New York City. In fact, many of its residents enjoy the short car ride over the George Washington Bridge to New York City on a daily basis. However, because of its location, cops often wait in anticipation of suspected drunk drivers traveling back from New York City. For this reason, Fort Lee makes more DWI and DUI arrests than many of the towns in New Jersey, and takes this offense extremely seriously. If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated or refusing to submit to breath test then you need an experienced attorney to protect your rights and help you obtain the best possible outcome for your case. This is important due to the fact that DWI penalties in New Jersey can result in large fines, loss of your license, loss of insurance, community service or even jail time.

Fort Lee Municipal Court
The Fort Lee Municipal Court is located at 309 Main Street, Fort Lee, NJ 07024. The telephone number is (201)-592-3575 and the fax number is (201)-585-1232. The court is open from Monday- Tuesday; Thursday through Friday 8:30am-4:00pm and Wednesday 8:30am- 7:30pm. If you are charged with or arrested for a DUI or DWI in Fort Lee, you will appear before the Honorable Judge DeSheplo. The Fort Lee Municipal Court system handles many types of offenses, but mostly motor vehicle violations, including about 150-200 speeding tickets a court session. Many times these DWI cases become more complicated as drivers can tack on additional charges including reckless or careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident or driving with a suspended license. Sometimes drivers can even end up with criminal charges related to driving under the influence such as possession of alcohol underage, keeping an open container in a vehicle, or resisting arrest. Appearing in court can be very nerve wracking experience, and it is not easy for someone without a legal background to successfully handle a DWI case without professional assistance. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall have successfully defended persons charged with all types of drug and alcohol related offenses, and have the experience that you need to protect your permanent record and future.
