Franklin is the most populated municipality in Somerset County with 62,300 residents and is understandably also a major source of DWI. If you were charged with DUI in the township, you are among over one-hundred facing this offense each year. This is an extremely high volume of charges given that the community has no major roadways to speak of other than a small stretch of Interstate 287 in northern corner of the town and county highways like NJ Route 27. Irrespective of where within the 48.84 square miles of Franklin Township you were stopped and arrested, you will need to hire a NJ DUI Defense Lawyer with the skill to overcome the violation on its merits.
Attorneys With The Experience & Training You Need To Effectively Defend Your DWI
An error made way too often by individuals in your position is to target an attorney based on the location of his or her office. The logic behind this strategy is that a lawyer who is geographically close to the court will have the most influence. This is a totally preposterous approach as there is no ability to plea bargain a DWI in New Jersey. Political favor and coziness have no part in a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 case as it is impossible to secure a downgrade or dismissal without a legitimate defect in the charge that prevents the prosecutor from proving the offense.
Our firm, The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, has the qualifications to reach this threshold. We are a team of former prosecutors and knowledgeable attorneys that have over 100 years experience defending charges in Franklin and surrounding municipalities. The lawyers on staff are also some of the most highly trained that you can find anywhere with three who are dual certified on the Alcotest and as instructors in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing.
