New Jersey Drunk Driving Defense and Traffic Violation Defense
Most traffic tickets are worth fighting in court, because a conviction could cause your car insurance to skyrocket and could cause you to lose your license or land you in jail. Those are:
- Possession of CDS in a motor vehicle
- Driving without insurance
- Drunk driving (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol)
- Underage drinking and driving
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Numerous speeding tickets
If you have been charged with any of these or other traffic violations, contact a defense attorney at the Toms River law office of the Fuggi Law Firm before you go to New Jersey municipal or criminal court. Having a defense attorney on your side can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of your case. It could mean the difference between keeping your license or losing it, or spending a few weeks or months in jail.
Drunk Driving and Underage Drinking and Driving
New Jersey drunk driving law sets different standards for adult drivers and for underage drivers. An adult pulled over on suspicion for DWI must have a blood alcohol content of .08 or more to be convicted. A person under 21 can face charges for a “kiddie DWI” if they have even a trace of alcohol in their system.
If your son or daughter was pulled over and failed the breath test, the State has the option of charging him or her as an adult. If they do, the young person faces major fines and surcharges, loss of their driver’s license, and a criminal charge on their record that will follow them into adulthood (unlike a juvenile crime). It pays to fight for dismissal or to have charges filed for “kiddie DWI.”
The DUI defense lawyers at the Fuggi Law Firm have more than a decade of experience representing clients in criminal, municipal and traffic court for DWI/DUI charges involving alcohol or drugs. We know how to challenge the evidence against you and will work hard to help you keep your driver’s license.
Contact us as soon as possible after a DWI arrest.
Driving While License is Suspended or Revoked
Far more people face this charge than you can imagine. Many of our clients were surprised to find themselves pulled over by the police because they were on the revoked list, and they didn’t even know it. If you failed to pay an insurance surcharge or forgot to pay a parking ticket or two, the court will act to revoke your license automatically.
Work with a lawyer immediately. You may face heavy fines and penalties, and quite possibly the loss of your driver’s license. With a lawyer on your side in court, we can often work out much more reasonable conditions and save your drivers’ license.
