Rockaway has one of the lowest population densities in Morris County yet is historically near the top when it comes to arrests for DWI. The high incident of charges is attributable to both a concentration of major highways and aggressive law enforcement. If you have been charged with DUI in this Rockaway Township, it is pivotal that you select the right lawyer to handle your case. Forget about trying to find the attorney who is the most politically connected in the community since plea bargaining is totally illegal in resolving a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 offense. The only way for the court to relieve you from mandatory penalties that include a license suspension is by your DWI lawyer convincing the court that the violation is flawed and cannot be proved. All of this must be placed on the record in open court and endorsed by the judge. Your best option in meeting this threshold is to hire the most skilled counsel that you can find.
