Different considerations come into play when someone licensed in Pennsylvania, New York or somewhere other than New Jersey is arrested for DWI in a municipality such as Bound Brook, Somerville, Clinton or Sparta. The twist that arises in this context is that since the driver holds a license in another state and NJ only has jurisdiction over licenses it has issued, its only course is to impose penalties for the violation. A judge has no authority to limit the use of an out-of-state license in this state and communicate the outcome of the DUI case to the licensing state. Our attorneys have considerable experience representing motorists from New York and Pennsylvania, as well as a long list of other states, who have been arrested and charged with DWI in Somerset and other counties. We can frequently eliminate or limit the collateral consequences of a charge. Our skills come from decades in practice, including years serving as prosecutors, and top flight training in this area of defense. To speak to an attorney at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall about an out of state license that is the subject of a driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence offense, call our Bridgewater Office at 908-722-1011.
Pennsylvania Driver Charged With DWI
The law in Pennsylvania is much different when it comes to DWI. There is a diversion program known as ADR that allows an individual to escape any record of a conviction in many instances and also an ability to avoid a license suspension. An attorney can help you insure that you have the benefit of these programs following an arrest in Vernon, Branchburg, Bernards, Bedminster or another town. This allows an out of state driver to escape any limitations on his ability to drive in Pennsylvania. Our attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of cases involving Pennsylvania drivers just like you.
New York Driver Arrested for DWI
New York is among the majority of states that provide for conditional licenses, as well as other relief, that allow an individual to avoid a revocation of their driving privileges even when they are 100% guilty. This option does not exist under New Jersey law. It is therefore crucially important that a defense attorney make sure that this recourse is not prejudiced irrespective of the outcome of the NJ case. The lawyers at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall are extremely acquainted with this dynamic and how to provide our clients with maximum insulation against a license suspension in New York.
