East Hanover DWI Defense Attorneys

East Hanover DWI ChargesIf you’re like most people, a New Jersey DWI offense is probably the most serious charge you will ever face in your life. It often starts innocently enough with a few too many drinks at a party, suddenly you’ve been arrested and are looking at the loss of your driving privileges, jail time and extensive fines. The fact that you “felt fine” or “weren’t that drunk” mean absolutely nothing if you’ve failed field sobriety tests, have registered a .08 or higher blood alcohol concentration or police had reason to believe you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have been charged with a DWI in East Hanover, NJ, the attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm have the highly effective defense strategies that you need to achieve a successful outcome. Now is not the time to compound a lapse in judgment by making the mistake of not protecting yourself with legal representation. Our skilled DUI defense attorneys have helped countless people in your exact position and we are ready to help you next.

DUI Arrests in East Hanover, NJ

With a population just under 12,000 and a median household income of $116,528, East Hanover is an affluent small suburban township located in Morris County, New Jersey. Because of its small size, East Hanover shares a regional high school with students from Florham Park, Hanover and Whippany, creating a lot of extra thru traffic from these neighboring communities. Its close proximity to Route 10, a major shopping area and a state highway that connects multiple towns in Northern New Jersey, makes it ripe for DWI checkpoints and drunk driving arrests by local and state police.

Individuals pulled over by police on suspicion of drunk driving in East Hanover, NJ are usually asked to take a breathalyzer test. If your breathalyzer test shows that your BAC was at a .08 or above, you will be arrested and charged with a DWI. For first time offenders, this will subject you to a license suspension, $250-$400 in fines and multiple other fees and surcharges under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50(a). While this is a harsh penalty for anyone, things are worse if your BAC is over .10 or if it is determined that you are under the influence of drugs.

  • Fines increase to $300-$500
  • Ignition interlock installation period increases

In either case, you may be forced to install an ignition interlock device on your car, requiring you to pass a breathalyzer test in your car before operating it.

The worst part of all may not be the punishments, but how they affect your life. Losing your license may prevent you from earning a living if you have to use a car to get back and forth to work or drive for a living. The fines, fees and surcharges may prove too burdensome for you and your family to manage. Additionally, a DWI conviction will expose you to more jail time and fines if you make the same mistake within the next 10 years.

Defense for East Hanover DWI Charges

Quite obviously, it’s in your best interests to avoid an East Hanover, NJ DWI conviction. Plea bargains are not allowed in NJ DWI cases, so your best defense strategy is to challenge the prosecution’s evidence and the way the police handled your stop. There are several avenues to explore and questions to ask:

  1.  Are the field sobriety tests reliable?
  2. Was the police stop legal?
  3. Was the person who administered the breathalyzer test licensed?
  4. Were there any problems with the administration of the breathalyzer test?
  5. Did another substance influence your failed breathalyzer test?
  6. Did police follow exact procedure?

When you enlist the DWI defense lawyers at The Tormey Law Firm, we comb through every facet of your case to identify areas that we may be able to exploit to get the charges dismissed. With thousands of DUI dismissals behind us, we know what to look for and how to undermine the prosecutor’s arguments. We also have a former Morris County DWI prosecutor on staff who uses her extensive knowledge of DWI prosecutions to strengthen our clients’ defenses.
