New Jersey Refusal to Submit to a Breathalyzer Lawyer
Morris County Criminal Defense Attorney
Drunk driving charges are extremely serious and the penalties are severe and automatic under the revised statutes. They may result in significant fines, insurance surcharges, long term suspension of your driver’s license and even jail time. This is also true when you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test. If you are charged with DWI or Refusal to take the test, you should immediately consult with an experienced attorney to protect your rights and develop your best defense. At the Law Office of John Tierney, we are tactically proficient, aggressive, and experienced.
We will immediately take strong and aggressive action to determine the basis for the police stop of your vehicle, the basis for their request that you perform the field sobriety tests, assess and confront their conduct in instruction to you regarding the tests, attack the legitimacy of the stop, field tests, breathalyzer or refusal, and zealously protect your Constitutional Rights under the United States and New Jersey Constitutions.
At the Law Office of John Tierney, we have extensive experience. We will demand adequate discovery and police reports from the State, contact witnesses, examine the evidence, and even obtain an expert to confront the technical administration of the tests, instruction and results of those tests.
When you plead guilty to DWI or Refusal without adequate representation, you lose opportunities to attack the charges against you, to assert the defenses to those charges, and lose the ability to minimize the potential consequences of such a violation. Also, if you are convicted a second or third time within ten years, the penalties and suspensions are enhanced. So for this reason alone, you must have competent representation to minimize future risks from the current offense.
Please contact John Tierney to schedule an immediate consultation.
