As the 20th most populated municipality in NJ with 64,000 plus residents, East Orange has more than the norm when it comes to driving while intoxicated (“DWI”) offenses in Essex County. This status certainly isn’t hurt by the fact that major roadways for DWI/DUI arrests like Interstate 280 and the Garden State Parkway are within its borders. Whether you were on a highway like these or driving on a street in one of the 5 wards of East Orange (i.e. Ampere, Greenwood, Presidential Estates, Elmwood, or Doddtown) our lawyers have the specialized training and qualifications in DWI defense that few in the entire state enjoy. There are 4 former DWI/DUI prosecutors on our staff, 5 who are certified on the Alcotest Machine, and two of our lawyers are among the approximately five instructors in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. We also happen to be one of perhaps 2 or 3 firms in the entire state, none of which are anywhere near Essex County, who own their own breath test machine. If you are looking for top flight credentials and the best opportunity to avoid a conviction, you should definitely take advantage of a free consultation with our driving while intoxicated defense firm. An attorney is available 24/7 at 973-710-1520.
DUI Lawyer in East Orange NJ
You might be surprised to learn that the City of East Orange usually ranks third in the number of DWI violations issued in Essex County each year, with Newark Driving Under the Influence and Bloomfield DWI charges ranking higher. There is little doubt that the Garden State Parkway is a major factor in the high amount of DWI cases in East Orange, as the roadway falls within the 3.924 mile boundary of the city from mile marker 146.93 to 148.44. The Judiciary of the State of New Jersey reported 164 East Orange DWI/DUI violations from July 2013 through June 2014, which is certainly well above the state average for a municipality. The adjacent municipality of Glen Ridge, for example, only had 38 DWI cases over the same time period, which demonstrates the extraordinarily high volume of drunk driving heard violations heard in East Orange Municipal Court.
East Orange NJ DWI Attorney
The biggest hurdle in a driving under the influence case is unquestionably the New Jersey Law prohibiting plea bargaining in a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 case. In order to avoid an alcohol or drug DWI an individual must present a genuine issue that raises reasonable doubt concerning the state’s ability to establish guilt beyond reasonable doubt. This is the primary reason, in our estimation, why it is imperative to retain an attorney who has considerable experience in the defense of driving while intoxicated and operating under the influence of drugs. Our firm leaves little doubt when it comes to knowledge and skill in defending drunk driving charges under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. We are not only the largest DWI defense team in NJ but also possess a combination of training and certification in this area of law that cannot be replicated. The attorneys at our Newark Office are prepared to invest all of their experience and assets in order to obtain the best outcome on your first, second or third charge. Call us any time of day or night for a complimentary initial consultation at 973-710-1520.
