 Wayne NJ DWI Lawyers

While many individuals take a DUI charge lightly, a drunk driving conviction can have very serious consequences. When facing charges of driving while intoxicated, driving under the influence or refusal to submit to a breath test, the guidance of an experienced lawyer can be invaluable in helping you defend yourself from unnecessary harm stemming from a conviction. In this regard, our defense team is unparalleled in Passaic County, possessing 3 of the 5 non-law enforcement field sobriety instructors in the state, as well as 5 attorneys certified on the Alcotest breath test device (approximately 50 lawyers hold this designation statewide). Our lead paralegal even possesses this certification to better assist our clients. We also happen to have the benefit of two former drunk driving prosecutors on our defense team. If qualifications and experience is what you are looking for, there truly is no other firm like ours for handling your DWI.
