Our Experienced Ocean NJ DUI/DWI Lawyers can Help You Avoid a License Suspension & Other Penalties Being arrested for DWI in Ocean Township or anywhere else can be a shocking experience. The aftermath can often be just as alarming once you start thinking about the mandatory driver’s license suspension that always applies in the event of conviction, not to mention the thousands of dollars in financial costs that arise. But all is not bleak. Our lawyers are victorious in many more DUI cases than most individuals envision. There is no substitute for training and experience when it comes to defending driving under the influence (e.g. marijuana, cocaine, heroin, Ambien, opiate pain medication, etc.). Whether it is alcohol or drugs which forms the basis for a N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 arrest, there is nothing that can be done to avoid a conviction unless you convince the prosecutor and judge that there is a real legal issue that prevents the state from convicting a defendant. Skill on the part of your attorney in identifying shortcomings in the case of the state police or Ocean Township Police Department are key in this regard. The attorneys at Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall possess the qualifications necessary to ensure that you have the best opportunity of avoiding penalties that include a license suspension of 3-12 months for a first offense, 2 years for a second offense and 10 years for a third or subsequent offense. These are consequences that can be life changing and the stakes get even worse when you consider that there is 2-90 days and 180 days in jail for a second and third conviction.
