NJ traffic stop.The DUI lawyers at DeMichele and DeMichele are proud of our reputation for mounting aggressive defenses for our clients charged with Driving While Intoxicated – DWI (NJS 39:4-50).

The Penalties for a DWI Conviction are severe, so you should never just plead guilty.

Just because you were charged with a DWI does not mean you will automatically be convicted.  We have helped numerous clients with beating or minimizing the penalties associated with a New Jersey DWI.  Our lawyers regularly represent individuals who been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated throughout South Jersey; including, Pennsauken, Haddonfield, Cherry Hill, Washington Township, Vineland, Mt. Laurel, Marlton, Waterford, Evesham, Gloucester Township, Collingswood, Waterford, Voorhees, Winslow Township.

A skilled DWI lawyer who is current on the law, with a solid knowledge of the facts, and the help of experts, can assert the right defense to win your DWI case.  Whether the prosecutor seeks to use the Alcotest reading (breath test), field sobriety testing observations, or blood test results to get a conviction, you need a skilled attorney to challenge the state’s evidence.  The defenses to the state’s evidence vary and can be complex.   Mounting a legal defense to the Alcotest is quite different to defending a blood draw case.

Just because the breath test machine gave a reading above the legal limit does not mean you are guilty.  The lawyers at DeMichele & DeMichele know the issues and problems with the Alcotest breath test machine. In New Jersey you can be found Not Guilty of DWI if the Alcotest breath test machine:

New Jersey Breath Test DUI1         was not working properly,

2         was not properly certified,

3         was not properly calibrated,

4         was not administered properly,

5        was not given by a qualified operator.


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, shouldn’t you 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 away (856) 546-1350.
