During my time as a criminal defense attorney I have worked tirelessly to defend my clients. In a recent case I defended a client charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) while under the influence of narcotics. I successfully fought to have all driving and drug-related charges either reduced or dismissed.
The defendant was arrested for DWI but was also charged with possession of various controlled dangerous substances, further complicating the case. I was able to use my legal knowledge and experience to have the charges reduced drastically. Drug DWI cases typically carry a mandatory minimum driver’s license loss for 7 to 12 months, along with hefty fines, mandatory community service, and a prison term of up to 30 days. However, I was able to convince the prosecutor to offer a “Tier 1” suspension, resulting in a short 90-day New Jersey driver’s license loss.
In addition to reducing the DWI charges I was also able to get all drug-related charges downgraded or dismissed to loitering. DWI and drug crimes often result in serious, lasting repercussions, but with a solid legal defense, your charges may be dropped or significantly reduced.
