If you have been accused of driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence (DWI/DUI) in New Jersey, you need experienced and competent legal counsel.
The Law Offices of John J. Zarych is here to provide that skilled counsel and to aggressively represent your rights and interests. Our DWI/DUI defense attorneys serve clients throughout all of South Jersey, including drivers arrested on the Garden State Parkway and the Atlantic City Expressway who are in danger of license suspension or revocation. Our DUI/DWI lawyers are particularly prepared to serve the needs of out-of-state clients who are arrested for drunk driving in New Jersey. We take special care to handle those cases in a way that will minimize the impact in their home states.
Our DWI/DUI Attorneys Are Prepared To:
1. Challenge the legality of the stop.
A driver cannot be stopped for a violation unless the police officer has probable cause to make the stop. We can file motions to suppress, challenging the legality of DWI stops. When successful, these motions result in dismissal of DWI/DUI charges.
2. Challenge the legality of the administration of breath tests.
The police may administer a breath test only if they have a reasonable belief that a driver has been driving under the influence. A successful motion to suppress will prevent the state from using the breath test findings at trial.
3. Challenge the use of blood evidence.
If a skilled defense lawyer provides the appropriate notices and demands proper documentation, it can be extremely burdensome for the state to prove a DWI/DUI case based upon blood analysis. We make every legal demand and provide all proper notices. Consequently, we are successful in many DWI/DUI cases that are based upon blood tests.
4. Examine prior convictions.
If you have one or more prior DWI/DUI convictions in New Jersey or any other state, our lawyers will research your history to see if there were past constitutional violations that might affect your present case and minimize drunk driving penalties.
5. Challenge the results of the Breathalyzer test.
New Jersey uses an AlcoTest 7110 MK III. Like any other machine, it is susceptible to error. Our DWI/DUI lawyers work with experts who will review the data to determine whether or not the results are accurate.
6. Take the case to trial.
If the charges are not dismissed, our lawyers are willing to try the case in court. Our willingness to try the case can make the difference between a conviction and no conviction, or between losing your license for a few months versus a few years.
