Madison DWI Defense Attorneys

Countless people make the mistake of believing that refusing a breathalyzer test when stopped by police for suspicion of drunk driving will prevent them from being charged with a DWI. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. If you were pulled over by police for driving under the influence in Madison, New Jersey, not only will you be charged with DUI, but you will also face an extra charge for refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test. According to N.J.S.A. 39:4:50.4a, all drivers must submit to a chemical test if they’ve been lawfully pulled over by police and are suspected of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

If you find yourself arrested for driving while intoxicated and/or breath test refusal in Madison, you need to seek immediate legal counsel from an experienced DWI defense lawyer.

DWI and Breathalyzer Refusal in Madison, NeMadison DWI Lawyers Best Defensesw Jersey

Known as “The Rose City,” Madison is a suburban borough located in Morris County. Partially because of its affluence, traffic violations like DWI are taken very seriously and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If you have been charged with drunk driving, you can expect the Madison prosecutors to try to make an example of you.

Assuming that this is your first offense, your Madison DWI charge could lead to a license suspension, up to $400 in fines, over $1,000 in surcharges and fees, the possibility of an ignition interlock device for up to a year and a maximum of 30 days in jail. Any sentence you receive as a result of your failure to submit to a breathalyzer test charge will be added to the aforementioned DWI penalties. That’s only for a first-time offense. Subsequent DWI’s and refusals could lead to an 8-year license suspension. As you might expect, more DWI or refusal convictions in your past significantly increase your exposure to penalties.

Your first instinct may be to simply accept the charges and face whatever consequences the judge hands down. But you should consider the implications before you do anything. You may have more options than you realize. Did the police have probable cause to stop you? Did they correctly follow all procedures? Were you made aware of the penalty for refusing a breathalyzer test? There are countless mitigating circumstances that may influence the outcome of your case. Before you do anything or agree to anything, it is critical that you immediately speak to a knowledgeable DWI attorney who has your best interests in mind.
