Morris County Traffic Laws

DWI Defense in New Jersey has developed into a complex, highly technical field that combines aspects of criminal defense with aspects of science and procedures unique to the area of DWI/DUI. You can visit the Motor Vehicles Website for a summary of the associated penalties. People often misunderstand that you do not need to be impaired or "intoxicated" to be convicted of DWI—it is a violation of the law to operate a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or above, regardless of the level of impairment.

Penalties for a DUI or DWI can include:

  • Fines between $250-1,000 depending on whether this is your first offense
  • License suspensions ranging from three months to ten years
  • Jail sentencing

To successfully defend DWI charges, you must first challenge the results of any blood alcohol test—usually the Alcotest which calculates BAC from breath samples. Only when the blood alcohol results are suppressed or undermined does the focus shift to actual impairment. Another possible defense strategy is to plead what is known as a “wet reckless,” reducing the charge from a felony down to a misdemeanor. The Law Office of Joseph S. Scura has successfully defended a number of DWI cases where the odds seemed to be stacked against the accused.
