The public has spoken out against intoxicated drivers. The police and the courts in New Jersey strictly enforce these laws and the consequential penalties that can include large fines, loss of license and possibly jail.
Although you may have been arrested for DUI/DWI, that doesn't mean you're a criminal. When you reach out to us at the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we are not here to judge you; we are here to defend you.
Our offices are located in Manalapan, and we advise and represent clients throughout Monmouth County and Middlesex County.
You Don't Need Someone To Judge You. You Want A Strong Defense.
Principal attorney, Jack Stillman, has more than 25 years of experience handling traffic violation and DUI/DWI defense matters. By taking a comprehensive, hands-on approach, Jack will review the details of your case and aggressively defend your interests.
Although DUI/DWI may seem relatively minor, the truth is that in addition to fines, probation and possible jail time, a conviction will have numerous collateral consequences that may affect you personally and professionally. Some possible consequences include the suspension or revocation of your driver's license, an increase in your insurance premiums, and if you drive for a living, the potential loss of your professional license and your job.
When you obtain our services, hours of research and investigation will go into finding issues in the prosecution's case that are defective. Determination will be made concerning the authenticity of the traffic stop. Was there proper protocol followed in a roadblock stop? Was there probable cause to believe you were intoxicated?
Regardless of the circumstances, we will put our knowledge, experience and tenacity to work finding any possible defects in the prosecution's case that may result in a reduction of charges or a dismissal.
Take Action And Obtain Representation From An Experienced Attorney
After being stopped, the police must have probable cause to believe the driver is intoxicated prior to making an arrest and performing a Breathalyzer test. Failure to agree to this test carries a mandatory loss of license on top of a possible additional loss if the state can prove your intoxication in other ways, including the following:
- Alphabet test
- Finger to nose test
- One leg balancing test
- Counting backwards
- Walking a line
- Horizontal gaze nystagmus test
