Although Riverdale NJ is a relatively tiny municipality at 2.0 square miles and 3,559 residents, it is consistently in the top half for DWI charges in Morris County. The disproportionate number of DUI offenses is an obvious sign that Riverdale police are extremely serious about apprehending those who violate N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 in the borough. You need have the same mindset if you want to overcome the mandatory penalties that apply for this violation. Unless you can raise an issue which raises reasonable doubt concerning the offense, for example, the validity of your being stopped on Interstate 287, Mathews Avenue, or Route 23, you stand no chance of avoiding a driver’s license suspension, as much as $10,000 in financial consequences or jail for a second or third offense.

Being arrested for driving under the influence of drugs (a.k.a. “DUI”) or alcohol can be an alarming experience, particularly when you start thinking about how a negative outcome can effect your life. This is why your decision as to who to hire to represent you is so crucial.

You will also obviously have to overcome any efforts of the prosecutor to convict you.
