New Jersey has some of the strictest DWI laws in the nation so it is foolish to take this charge lightly in North Plainfield or anywhere elsewhere in the state. The offense is taken so seriously that lawmakers have made plea bargaining of DUI charges illegal. You will have to come up with a legitimate legal basis to dismiss your ticket or face serious penalties that always include a license suspension and thousands of dollars in financial consequences. The characteristics of this area of law make it imperative that you hire a lawyer with the ability to dismantle the prosecutor’s case.
