Every year, thousands of law-abiding New Jersey residents find themselves facing criminal charges related to drunk driving. If you were pulled over and subsequently arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, it's important to know that you have options and that there are effective defense strategies to DUI charges.
At Hartstein & Hartstein, we understand that DUI cases are often complex and that several questions must be thoroughly investigated and answered, including:
- Was a traffic stop valid?
- How and by whom was a field sobriety test administered?
- When and by whom was a Breathalyzer or blood alcohol test administered?
- Were you informed of your legal rights?
The consequences of a DUI can be life-changing. If convicted, you may lose your driver's license, be forced to pay steep fines, see your insurance rates skyrocket and even spend time behind bars. Given the high stakes associated with a DUI conviction, you should always talk with a defense lawyer before you even think about pleading guilty.
