Secaucus NJ DWI Lawyer

The roadways and highways that run through Secaucus, New Jersey are heavily patrolled by a combination of State Troopers and Secaucus Police which has resulted in an increase of DWI arrests. Even though DWI charges are actually considered motor vehicle violations in New Jersey they are often tougher than some criminal charges and carry very harsh mandatory consequences for even first-time offenders. This is because our state does not allow any type of plea negotiations for drunk driving cases and if you are found guilty or plead guilty the loss of your driver’s license is mandatory and there are no “hardship” or work licenses available in New Jersey. This makes hiring an experienced DUI defense attorney all the more important. At Proetta & Oliver we have successfully handled literally hundreds of driving under the influence charges. Moreover, the firm’s founding attorney, William A. Proetta is one of a handful of lawyers in the state that holds dual certification as Instructor level for Standard Field Sobriety Testing in accordance with NHTSA and for the operation and proper maintenance of the Alcotest machine – New Jersey’s breathalyzer. These certifications allow us to analyze our client’s cases with specialized knowledge that most other law firms do not possess. If you would like to discuss the details of your case further please contact our Jersey City office at (201) 793-8018 to talk to an experienced DWI attorney.
