As New Jersey drunken driving defense attorneys, I and my staff of experienced DWI lawyers make it our job to represent motorists who have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, prescription medications or other potentially intoxicating substances (such as cocaine or marijuana). This, however, does not mean that we do not understand the dangers associated with driving while intoxicated by alcohol, doctor-prescribed meds or even controlled dangerous substances (CDS).
Having worked in the past as a municipal prosecutor for many years, it was my job to obtain convictions against those drivers who had been arrested for DWI, drug DUI and breath-test refusal. Using that experience, I and my legal team can better understand the strategies and legal approaches used by New Jersey state prosecutors against drivers who may or may not have been legally drunk at the time of their arrest.
Of course, the first step in any New Jersey DWI/DUI case is the initially arrest. As anyone who reads local news reports already knows, drunken driving is a common offense here in the Garden State. Whether one lives in Bergen, Ocean, Passaic or Monmouth County, there are dozens of traffic stops every week that result in drunken driving summons being issued against drivers.
