Free Case Evaluation

If you face charges for driving under the influence, please read on, then contact an experienced Mercer County DUI lawyer to learn what you should know about defending against a DUI charge in New Jersey.

How do you defend against a DUI charge in New Jersey?

The first thing you need to understand is that you simply cannot afford to defend yourself against a DUI charge. Doing so is detrimental and will likely result in your spending time behind bars, facing high fines, and more. The second thing you should understand is that the defense your lawyer uses will depend largely on the circumstances of your arrest. In some cases, your attorney can argue the breathalyzer test results are inadmissible in court due to law enforcement’s failing to follow proper procedure. In other cases, your attorney can argue that field sobriety tests were improperly administered. We can even argue that you have a medical condition that caused you to fail the breath or field sobriety test.

In any case, the most important thing you can do is retain the services of a seasoned criminal defense attorney as soon after you’re charged as possible. The Law Office of Douglas Herring has extensive experience handling DUI cases in New Jersey, and it is prepared to fight for you as well.


Here at the Law Office of Douglas Herring, we believe that everyone accused of a crime is entitled to due process.
