Clark NJ DWI Lawyer

Welcome sign upon entry to the Town of ClarkNew Jersey has some of the most stringent DUI laws in the nation and things aren’t any different if you were arrested in Clark Township NJ. There is a license suspension for even a first offense and there is no provision for driving conditionally. If the conviction is for a second offense or, even worse, a third offense, there is mandatory jail term. Beyond these significant penalties, the state has abolished plea bargaining altogether in DWI/DUI cases to insure full enforcement of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. Hiring a knowledgeable DWI lawyer with the ability to effectively analyze and contest the prosecutor’s case is therefore your lone option if you want to escape a conviction.

Our firm, The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, possesses an exceptional record in DWI cases, having successfully defended thousands of cases. A major factor in achieving these favorable results is the training and experience of our driving while intoxicated team. Most of the lawyers are former prosecutors who know how the courts and police work all too well, and who also happen to comprise the handful statewide who are dual certified in Field Sobriety Testing and on the Alcotest Breath Test device. These truly unique qualifications equip our attorneys with the skills necessary to not only spot but, in some cases, create viable legal issues to allow for a result that does not include a DWI offense. We encourage you to contact our Union Township firm for a free initial consultation at 908-272-1700 if you are facing a DWI in Clark.

DUI Arrests in Clark

Whether your case arose out of an encounter with a state trooper near Exit 135 on the Garden State Parkway or on a local roadway like Raritan Road, your charge will be heard at the Clark Township Municipal Court. DWI sessions are conducted on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. This court hears an exceedingly high number of driving while intoxicated cases, particularly when you consider that it only measures about 4.49 square miles. For more detailed court information, you can refer to its official website by clicking here. There is a Supreme Court directive that requires that all cases be resolved within sixty days of issuance of the summons, so it is important that you act swiftly to allow your attorney to gather all of the necessary information and prepare your defense.

Clark DWI Defense Attorneys

Our years of experience have taught us many things when it comes to DUI charges but most importantly that there are no shortcuts if your objective is results. We are a firm that is committed to investing whatever it takes to secure the best resolution of your offense and this is because history has told us that this is the only way to regularly earn dismissals. Indeed, although people often think things like being most tightly connected to the prosecutor or judge in a town is what is most important in selecting a DWI defense attorney but this certainly is a fallacy. You need the most skilled and committed lawyer you can afford because the only way the court can even permit a deviation from conviction in a NJ drunk driving case is by creating an issue of reasonable doubt concerning the stop, arrest, or proof of intoxication. We are one of very few firms that can regularly provide this opportunity. Call us 24/7 at 908-272-1700.
