New Jersey Authorities Are Tough on Drunk Drivers: You Need to Respond with an Equally Tough Defense Lawyer

DWI, DUI, or drunk driving charges can all result in the loss of your license, significant fines, and serious penalties that include jail time. When you have been arrested for drunk driving, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and minimize the consequences. At James Porfido, Attorney at Law we offer strategic and aggressive advocacy aimed at protecting your rights and interests. 

Begin your case evaluation by calling us at (973) 370-9788 today. 

Types of DUI Cases We Handle

The firm handles a wide range of DUI/DWI cases, including:

  • Accidents with injury
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Refusing to be tested
  • Underage DWI
  • DWI on federal land
  • Drug-related DWI
  • High blood alcohol content (BAC)
  • Court-ordered ignition interlock devices
  • Issues involving vehicle operation
  • Observation versus BAC challenge — use of drug recognition expert (DRE)

Even a first-time offender may face loss of license or jail time in some instances. If you have been convicted of DUI/ DWI before, you need aggressive and experienced counsel because the penalties will be enhanced. Contact us to assert your rights and challenge the administration of field sobriety tests and other circumstances of the traffic stop. 

Strategies Tailored to the Unique Facts of Your DWI Case

If you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), it is critical that you hire a lawyer who can assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case to minimize the repercussions of the drunk driving charge. At James Porfido, Attorney at Law, we have successfully represented many clients charged with drunk driving. We have the skill and experience needed to spot and exploit deficiencies in the prosecution’s case, such as an illegal vehicle stop or arrest, improper administration of the standardized field sobriety test (SFSTS), and unreliable Alcotest and breathalyzer results. 

We are familiar with the New Jersey Supreme Court’s ruling as to the proper administration of the Alcotest and we know how to defend you and challenge the sobriety testing. Our firm can help you get the best possible results in your case. We frequently appear at Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) hearings to get suspended licenses reinstated. 

We have extensive experience and will take the following actions in your case:

  • We will examine the basis for the stop and make sure that officers had a legal reason to pull you over
  • We will thoroughly examine the charges and challenge any evidence illegally obtained
  • We will examine and challenge sobriety tests, including the basis for administration of the test
  • We will review police reports, contact witnesses, and, when necessary, use expert testimony to build your defense
