DUI cases are often difficult uphill battles. However, the consequences of accepting the penalties are so grave that it is usually worthwhile to consult with a seasoned DWI defense attorney who can truly provide your greatest opportunity to avoid the penalties that you face. New Jersey courts do not allow plea-bargaining in regard to a defendant’s driving while intoxicated charges. Additional difficulties surrounding a Toms River DWI include the fact that a sole municipal court judge governs your fate rather than a jury of peers. Also, the municipal court is under pressure by the administrative office of the courts (AOC) to resolve DWI cases within 60 days of the arrest, which is a relatively short period of time. To make matters worse, New Jersey courts do not offer “hardship” or work license for individuals who have had their licenses suspended due to DWI. Ultimately, the best way to confront the state’s aggressive prosecution is to hire a tough DWI defense attorney with the experience and knowledge to challenge the state’s proofs and methodology in administering your DWI charge. At the Law Offices of Proetta & Oliver, we take DWI defense very seriously and have the tools you need to win. To speak with an experienced Ocean County DUI attorney about skillful and passionate representation, contact our Toms River office around the corner at (848) 238-2100.
