Dover Criminal & DWI Lawyer

Experienced Criminal Attorney Represents Clients Charged with DWI Offenses and Traffic Offenses in Dover, NJ

The NJ criminal justice system can be difficult to navigate, especially for someone facing serious criminal charges that carry penalties such as prison time and significant fines. Beyond that, a conviction will result in you having a criminal record that could make it extremely difficult for you to secure a job in the future. The good news is that a qualified criminal lawyer can potentially challenge the evidence in your case, including the legality of your arrest and any subsequent searches & seizures by police. This is very important because many criminal cases in Dover Municipal Court and Morris County Superior Court turn on the underlying facts.

Were you recently arrested in Dover, New Jersey? Experienced Dover criminal attorney James M. Porfido and his skilled legal team will examine the evidence, review police records, talk to the prosecutor, and seek the best possible outcome to your case.
