Arguing Down a DWI Charge in Kearny, New Jersey

Kearny, New Jersey is a popular Hudson County town. A suburb of Newark, Kearny has a population of just over 40,000 residents. The state of New Jersey is one of the strictest in the nation when it comes to pulling over and prosecuting DWI’s. A DWI conviction can have a devastating and lasting impact on your personal and professional life, not to mention the major financial toll it can have on your pocketbook!

As with any New Jersey traffic ticket, just because you have been charged with an offense does not mean you will be convicted. And when it comes to something as serious as a Kearny DWI, this is something you should get in touch with an experienced attorney to help fight immediately. There are a variety of defenses to a Kearny DWI with the ultimate goal of reducing or eliminating the serious charge against you. The difference between having a DWI and a reckless driving charge on your driving record can make a huge difference and help you avoid many of the permanent consequences that come with a DWI conviction. Here’s a look at some of the defenses used to reduce or eliminate a DWI charge:

  • Challenge the tests: from the field sobriety tests to the blood or urine tests that the prosecution has against you, challenging the method and collection of these tests is always part of a comprehensive defense strategy. Often the only piece of evidence the police have against an individual, if you are able to successfully call into question the reliability of the tests, you call into question the entire charge.
  • Challenge the situation: Where were you and where were the police when you were pulled over and charged? Was there a DWI checkpoint and was it a legal stop? Do you have a witness that can help with your defense? Were you read your rights? The circumstances surrounding a charge are always looked into when it comes to defending against a DWI charge.

As you can see convicting a driver of a DWI is not always easy and there are a variety of defenses available depending on the specifics of your case. The Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt can help.
