If you plead guilty or are found guilty of a NJ DWI and have a FL license FL will suspend you for at least 6 months and as much as what ever NJ would suspend you for.See question
I am a permanent resident here for more than 10 years and was pulled over for a DUI a month ago. This will be my second offense. My first offense was 2 years ago and resulted in a 7 months suspension and about $750 in fines and a $3000 insurance s...
Yes. This means you should hire both a DWI lawyer and an immigration lawyer. Not every lawyer is suited to handle both, so be careful in you hunt for good representation. Remember good lawyers aren't cheap and cheap lawyers aren't good!See question
I was arrested for DWI,first time,no prior convictions,clean record,breath test result 0.13%BAC.I am 58 father of 2.
Based on your BAC of 0.13%, you are looking at:
7 to 12 mos license suspension
$300 to $500 in fines
$389 in assessments
12 hours in the intoxicated drug resource center (IDRC)
Up to 30 days in jail (highly unlikely)
A good DWI lawyer may be able to find defenses that you might not know exist. Those defenses can result in exclusion of breath test evidence or even a complete dismissal.
Look for a lawyer who:
- is Certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Municiple Court Trial Lawyer
- is trained in field sobriety testing, preferably an instructor.
- is a certified Alxotest operator, or if your case was blood, someone trained in forensic chromatography
And I was waiting at least a minute ...he acted like he was parking ....I made the turn and as I was parking in front of my home he pulled up to me and told me get back in the vechile and walked up to me and put me in cuffs..detained....I got hit ...
No, it's not entrapment. Entrapment occurs when the police get you to do something you wouldn't normally do, then arrest you. Seven years? Did you plead guilty or did you not show up for 7 years and the case is still pending?See question
I was pulled over with a suspended license for my second DUI. While driving, I was sober and not speeding or performing any other traffic violations. Is there anyway to request excessive fines or community service in lieu of jail time? I've also n...
The only way to avoid jail is to fight it and win! There creative ways to attack a charge like this. But if you plead guilty, or are found guilty, you are looking st 6 months minimum, and up to 18 months maximum in jail or prison. STOP DRIVING!See question
My first boyfriend is telling me that if I do a court order for a DNA test he would not appear
If he fails to comply with a court order, he will be arrested and brought before the court and they will get their DNA test.See question
So the other I got stopped and I was under the influence of marijuana. I didn't know you could get charged a dwi with marijuana. I need a good lawyer that's good in DUI cases. But money is a problem
Good lawyers are not cheap and cheap lawyers are not good. Any lawyer can handle a DWI but the good ones are few and far between. Look for a lawyer who has training in SFSTs (fleld sobriety tests) and is an Alcotest operator. Those are the minimal skills needed. A certified lawyer is the next best thing.See question
I have a VA driver license, but I got a DUI in NJ. The first DUI offense for NJ is loss of license for 3 months, but the VA first DUI offense is 1 year. Do I need a NJ or VA lawyer and which offense would I receive?
If you are convicted in NJ, you will be suspended for 3 months only if your BAC was between a 0.08 and 0.10. If your BAC was 0.10 or greater it will be for 7 to 12 months. In addition if your BAC is 0.15 or greater, you will have to install an ignition interlock device. NJ will report this to VA, and VA will take some action. However, in VA, I believe they have limited use licenses for work and school.
The best way to avoid a DWI suspension in VA, is to have a lawyer in NJ who has specialized training in DWI defense. First look and see if they are a Certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Municipal Court Trial Lawyer, very few are. This is important because it means that attorney has experience trying cases, has been peer reviewed by prosecutors and judges, and has passed a rigorous test. Second, look and see what type of training they have. Are they trained in Field Sobriety Testing? Are they trained in Drug Recognition? What about breath testing? Did they avail themselves of the Draeger Alcotest Training (less than 60 of 80,000 have). These are important skills needed to properly fight a DWI.See question
A friend of mine went to see a DUI attorney regarding a DUI they got and the attorney started talking about family law and having my friend removed when his father was complaining about his lifestyle even though he told the court during their arra...
If this lawyer is acting as an adversary against his client, then that would be an ethical violation. The operative word is IF. If this is the case, he should probably fire the lawyer and report him for an ethics violation.
The fact that your friend is using a family lawyer to handle his DWI, while not unethical, also concerns me. It's hard to be good at DWI, which is extremely technical and scientific, as it is. But when a lawyer is doing other practice area, it's doubtful that the lawyer has any training in field sobriety testing, breath testing, drug DWI. Etc.See question
