Lacey NJ DWI Lawyers

Arrested for DWI in Lacey Township New Jersey? Contact Its Former Prosecutor For A Free Consultation

The Township of Lacey is one of the higher volume municipalities in Ocean County for driving while intoxicated (“DWI”) charges. While the town, which is also referred to as Forked River, only ranks seventh in population in the county, it is the home to about 5 miles of the Garden State Parkway. This tends to inflate the number of DWI, DUI and refusal offenses as there are two law enforcement agencies targeting drunk drivers in the town, namely, the New Jersey State Police and the Lacey Township Police Department. If you were arrested and charged in Lacey with DWI or driving under the influence of marijuana, heroin or prescription medication, we can help you. Our law firm possesses the largest DUI defense team in the state and includes lawyers who are former prosecutor of Lacey Municipal Court. The defense lawyers also happen to have what may be the most extensive training in the New Jersey when it comes to defending DWI cases including certification on the Alcotest machine and in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”). We are also one of very few practices in the state with its own Draeger Alcotest machine. Call us 24/7 at 732-286-6500 to speak to Matthew Dorry, a former prosecution in Lacey Township, or another lawyer equipped to represent you. The consultation is free of charge.

Experienced Lacey Township DUI Defense Attorneys
There is no plea bargaining of your DUI charge in Lacey whether you are facing a first offense, second offense or this is a third or subsequent offense. The prosecutor nor judge have any ability to dismiss or downgrade your summons unless they believe you have presented a bona fide issue that prevents the state from proving a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 violation. There is no substitute for training and experience when it comes to presenting a legitimate impediment and this is why someone retains a firm like ours. Our attorneys are some of the most highly schooled DWI defense lawyers in the state and even include the former prosecutor of Lacey, Matthew Dorry. They will do what is necessary to sift through the discovery in your case and pull on each an every thread so that all possible defenses are fully explored. It may be that there is something blatantly wrong with the proofs of the police or, as is more often the case, something very subtle that requires skill to develop on behalf of a client. Irrespective of where your DWI or DUI charge falls, you will have the comfort of knowing that your case is being handled by attorneys with top notch skills. This will insure that you have every opportunity to avoid a conviction, a mandatory driver’s license suspension, thousands of dollars in financial consequences and other significant penalties.
