The consequences associated with drinking or getting high and driving are objectively bad. DWI/DUI convictions carry severe consequences for our clients including fines, license suspension, and secondary effects to employment and one’s lifestyle.

The good news is that we’re here to help.

Due to the In re Clark decision, I cannot represent any criminal defendants in Atlantic County or Camden County. My criminal practice is limited to defending clients accused of crimes and traffic offenses outside of Atlantic County and Camden County.

However, our firm’s other attorneys continue to represent those charged with crimes and traffic offenses throughout New Jersey.

We’ve discussed the nuances of DWI/DUI checkpoints before here at our New Jersey legal blog.

DWI ArrestIn a majority of U.S. states including our own state of New Jersey, rightly or wrongly, motor vehicle sobriety checkpoints do not automatically constitute illegal “searches or seizures.” That said, the police are obviously bound to abide by certain procedures mandated by both statute or the U.S Constitution. The first step in mounting a successful DUI/DWI defense always involves examining the constitutionality of the initial stop itself.

DeMichele & DeMichele attorneys will closely evaluate the circumstances surrounding your DUI/DWI stop to ascertain whether the police had cause to pull you over in the first place. We will then proceed to analyze the state’s case, point-by-point, to protect your rights and hold the state to its proofs.

Before you plead guilty to a DWI in New Jersey and lose your driving privilege, pay a substantial fine, pay surcharges, pay increased automobile insurance premiums and possibly go to jail, contact the DWI defense lawyers at DeMichele & DeMichele. Our lawyers have worked as municipal court prosecutors and public defenders in several South Jersey towns.

A confidential free consultation with an experienced DWI attorney is just a call (856) 546-1350 or click away!
