HUNTERDON COUNTY, NEW JERSEY RESTRAINING ORDER ATTORNEY

I represented a client on a motion to dismiss an old final restraining order. The client no longer lived here in New Jersey and had not had contact with the plaintiff in several years. After discussions with the plaintiff's attorney, the plaintiff agreed to consent to the dismissal. The final restraining order was dismissed, and the client could move forward in life without any encumbrances. If you are seeking to vacate an old Final Restraining Order, call the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt at 877-676-7729 to schedule your free consultation.

SUSSEX COUNTY NEW JERSEY DWI LAWYER

I represented an out-of-state client on DWI, Refusal to Take a Breath Test, and other motor vehicle charges. The client did not take the Alcotest, and due to the client's medical issues at the scene, field sobriety tests and officer observations were inconclusive. After exhaustive negotiations with the municipal prosecutor and a discussion with the arresting officer, the DWI charge was dismissed, as the prosecutor could not prove the DWI beyond a reasonable doubt. The client was convicted of only the Refusal, resulting in no suspension of the client's out-of-state license. If you have been charged with DWI, Refusal to take a Breath Test, or other traffic violations, call the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt at 877-676-7729 to schedule your free consultation.

DWI TICKET BLITZ TO BEGIN IN 110 NEW JERSEY TOWNS ON AUGUST 16, 2019

Beginning Friday August 16, 2019 and running through Labor Day Weekend, 110 New Jersey Towns and Police Departments will be using $540,00 in overtime grants from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety to conduct Drunk Driving ticket blitzes throughout the state. Several towns in each county have received funds to conduct the crackdowns as part of New Jersey's annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign. Approximately 300 other law enforcement agencies, including the New Jersey State Police will also be taking part in the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, despite not receiving overtime funding. During last year's campaign, police set up 20 DWI checkpoints throughout the state, and made 1,196 DWI arrests. If you have been charged with DWI, Refusal to take a Breath Test, or other traffic violations, call the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt at 877-676-7729 to schedule your free consultation.

"RED FLAG" GUN CONTROL LAW TO GO INTO EFFECT IN NEW JERSEY SEPTEMBER 1, 2019

New Jersey's new Red Flag gun control law, signed by Governor Murphy in June, goes into effect on September 1, 2019. Under this law, N.J.S.A. 2C:58-20, individuals will be able to file gun violence restraining orders against persons believed to be a significant risk of harming either themselves or others. This law gives judges the authority to review evidence presented by the petitioner and order that individuals determined to be at risk of harming themselves or others be required to remain away from firearms for a period of up to one year. Additionally, if the individual in question already owns a gun, these extreme risk protection orders would allow law enforcement officers to confiscate firearms for the duration of the order. New Jersey is the tenth state to enact this type of gun control legislation. If you are the subject of an extreme risk protection order, call the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt at 877-676-7729 today to schedule your free consultation.

JUDICIAL PANEL TO REHEAR OVER 20,000 DWI CASES IN NEW JERSEY

On Monday, August 5, the Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court created a 4-judge panel to hear Post Conviction Relief Applications in over 20,000 DWI cases that were prosecuted using botched blood alcohol readings. The panel will consist of retired Judges Robert Fall, Linda Baxter, Stephan Hansbury, and Robert Reed, who will sit as Municipal Court Judges with statewide jurisdiction. In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in State v. Cassidy that the blood alcohol readings in 20,667 DWI cases were inadmissible, after accusations came to light that Trooper Marc Dennis had calibrated Alcotest machines in several counties in New Jersey using an incorrect thermometer. Defendants who pled guilty to DWIs based upon Alcotest readings from these machines are entitled to withdraw their previously entered guilty plea, and have the case heard anew.
