Interstate 78 runs east to west directly across all of Warren New Jersey and is patrolled by the State Police. Warren also has many local roads that serve as arteries through and around the township including Mountainview Road and King George Road. This means that not simply one department is on the lookout in Warren for DWI offenses, but two separate law enforcement agencies. This circumstance creates a greater risk of being arrested and charged with DUI than the majority of Somerset County municipalities. When someone like you or your loved one is faced with a DWI in Warren, it is important to appreciate that the offense carries significant penalties if you lose your case. In addition, the prosecutor like discretion to simply downgrade or dismiss the charge as there is a strict bar against plea bargaining a driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs violation. The result is that unless your attorney can convince the court to dismiss the offense based on a bona fide legal issue, you must be subjected to large fines, a license suspension of between three months and ten years depending on whether its your first, second or third offense, and a jail term if you are a repeat offender. For that reason, your biggest concern needs to be identifying the most skilled lawyer to defend you. The attorneys at our firm have handled thousands of DWI matters over their 100 plus years in practice, including time as prosecutors, and are prepared to fight for you.

Warren Township DUI Charge
If you were arrested for DUI by either a state trooper or a member of the Warren Police Department, you will have to appear at the Warren Municipal Court located at 44 Mountain Boulevard, Warren, New Jersey 07059. It is in your best interest to consult with an attorney prior to your initial court date as this is not the type of offense to be handled on your own. In addition to stiff penalties, the law is uncompromising and complex in this area. Honorable Mark Adler, the judge of the municipal court, has no authority to impose anything less than the mandatory minimums set forth under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, including a revocation of your privilege to drive for even a first offense. The prosecutor, Brent Bramnick, Esq., is also limited in what he can offer in terms of a resolution as it is illegal for him to show any favor absent a legitimate legal basis for his actions. The Warren Township Municipal Court conducts day sessions on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesday of the month at 9:30 a.m., and evening sessions on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. The phone number of the Warren Municipal Court is (908) 753-8000.
