Lakehurst NJ Drug DUI Attorney

For such a tiny borough in the middle of Manchester Township, Lakehurst writes up a significant number of Ocean County DWI tickets each year. If you or your loved one has been pulled over and subsequently failed or refused to submit to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test or Alcotest issued by a Lakehurst or NJ state police officer, then you should understand that a DWI ticket in New Jersey is a very serious and complicated matter. It is important that you educate yourself concerning the penalties and consequences of drunk driving charges while putting yourself in the best position to beat the charges that you face. New Jersey has among the strictest DWI and DUI laws in the nation. Contributing factors to the severity of NJ DWI laws include:

1) That the state does not offer any plea-bargaining for DWI charges;

2) If convicted, you may lose your license for a mandatory period ranging from 4 months to up to 8 years; and

3) You can face additional mandatory penalties such as the installation of an ignition interlock device and mandatory drunk driving classes through the IDRC.

Refusal to Submit to a Breath Test Charges in Lakehurst NJ

Despite its tiny size, Lakehurst’s location off of Route 70, Route 37, and Route 547, along with the fact that it borders the Lakehurst Naval Air Station explains its active police presence in prosecuting criminal and traffic violations. Experience is paramount when it comes to effectively defending and beating DWI charges in New Jersey. William A. Proetta is one of a handful of lawyers in the entire state that holds dual-certification in the operation and maintenance of the Alcotest 7110 machine (the very mechanism used by police to gauge BAC) as well as instructor certification in Standard Field Sobriety Testing in accordance with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This places the attorneys at the Law Offices of William A. Proetta in a unique and powerful position to defend DWI cases because we utilize our expertise in focusing upon the small technical mistakes often made by officers when they engage in DWI arrests. Feel free to stop by our office conveniently located off of Route 9 in Toms River to discuss the details of your case or call us at (848) 238-2100. Our attorneys are available 24 hours a day to answer your calls.

DWI Arrests in Lakehurst New Jersey

The best (and only) way to beat the serious charges you face is to challenge the state’s case against you. At the Law Offices of William A. Proetta we  meticulously analyze the prosecution’s discovery to pinpoint technicalities and inconsistencies within the evidence against you. For example, we have gotten many clients’ Alcotest readings suppressed by proving that the police did nor follow proper protocol when administering the test. Such a suppression of results in dramatically lowering the suspension period and can even lead to a “Not Guilty” ruling. To learn more about how we can help you, contact our Toms River office at (848) 238-2100 for a free initial consultation to build a customized case strategy for your specific needs.
