Exploring defense options for drunk driving charges

If there is a way out of your drunk driving charge, wouldn't you want to find it? With the help of a New Jersey criminal defense attorney, you may be able to do just that. An experienced attorney may be able to identify flaws in the drunk driving case against you, increasing the likelihood of a positive outcome in your criminal defense proceeding.

Our team of legal experts knows that there are three main ways to defend against a DUI charge. First, the arresting officer's motive, or probable cause, may be questioned. That is, the officer's reason for pulling you over in the first place may be dubious, which means that your case could be dismissed.

Next, the arresting officer's reason for arresting you could also be called into question. Officers may have observed that the driver was intoxicated through field tests. In those cases, the officer's discretion may be questioned, leading to a positive outcome for the person accused of driving while intoxicated. Finally, defense attorneys may question the validity of Breathalyzer and blood test results -- along with the procedures used to obtain samples from the defendant.

These defense strategies are critical when considering the potential consequences of a conviction for a DUI charge. Even if you are convicted of a first-offense DWI, you may spend up to 30 days in jail, pay thousands of dollars in fines and insurance increases and lose the ability to drive for several months. Repeat offenders' penalties are even more severe.

Do not allow a drunk driving charge to ruin your personal and professional life. Protect your finances and your future by enlisting the help of our qualified team of legal experts. A customized and aggressive defense could be the key to a positive outcome in your criminal case.
