Experienced Flemington DWI Attorney
Ensuring that You Are Treated Fairly Under the Law
In New Jersey, individuals charged with drunk driving are losing the presumption of innocence. Courts and juries are eager to convict and hand out stiff punishments. In fact, you can serve more prison time for DWI than for robbery. To make certain your rights are protected, you need a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in defending people charged with drunk driving.
Our firm's founder, Stephen D. Williams, is chair-elect to the State Municipal Court Committee and is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations on DWI legislation. That means he is up-to-date and familiar with all laws and procedures relevant to your case and can ensure that you are treated fairly under the law. Contact us online or call locally at 908-284-0074 or toll free at 888-536-8349 to discuss your DWI defense in a free initial consultation.
Defending Your Driving Privileges and Your Freedom in Drunk Driving Cases
Through the committee, we are at the forefront of determining whether appropriate police procedure has been followed. If you were improperly stopped or administered an Alcohol test, we will work to have the relevant evidence thrown out and your charges dropped.
We pay close attention to detail, because in DWI cases, the stakes are high. These are the mandatory punishments for DWI conviction:
1st Offense: Depending on blood alcohol level, a first conviction carries a suspended license for three to seven months, fines approximating $500 and additional insurance surcharges of $1000 a year for three years.
2nd Offense: A second conviction is punished by two year loss of license and higher fines.
3rd Offense: A third conviction receives ten year suspension of license and mandatory 180 days in jail.
Contact our firm by e-mail to discuss your DWI case. Our office, located one block from the Hunterdon County Courthouse, is open weekdays from 9 am until 5 pm. For your convenience, we offer free initial consultations, in-jail visits, and evening and weekend appointments. We also accept credit cards.
