Charged With DUI In Pequannock Township New Jersey
A conviction for DWI in Pequannock results in serious penalties that can only be avoided if you successful defend the charge. There is no plea bargaining of a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 (“Driving while intoxicated”) offense in New Jersey so you will have to mount an effective defense in order to avoid the penalties on your Pequannock DUI charge. A skilled attorney is an absolute imperative in our view in achieving this goal. The lawyers at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall are highly qualified to serve you in this role. We are the largest DUI defense firm in the state, have several former prosecutors on our staff, and have been defending drunk driving charges for over 100 years between our eight attorneys.
