If you were among the over 100 drivers charged with DWI in Hanover NJ in the last twelve months, you need to hire an attorney immediately. A primary reason is since there is a directive that your DUI offense be concluded within sixty days of the arrest. This does not give you much time to prepare especially when you consider the high stakes involved. A conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (e.g. marijuana, prescription pain medication, etc.) will cost you thousands of dollars and result in a license suspension of up to 12 months for a first offense, 2 years for a second offense and 10 years for a third or subsequent offense. Our firm, Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver is not only possesses the largest DWI defense team in the state but also includes numerous former prosecutors and attorneys who exceptionally trained in this area of law. Five of our defense lawyers are among the 50 or so in the state who are certified on the Draeger Alcotest 7110 breathalyzer and three are even qualified as instructors in field sobriety testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a credential held by less than 8 in the state. An attorney who knows what it takes to successfully defend a Hanover DWI is available immediately at (973) 309-7050 or to discuss your case online. Initial consultations are free of charge.
