East Brunswick NJ DWI Lawyers
If you have been charged with DWI in East Brunswick, New Jersey, the penalties you face can impact every part of your life. Despite the fact that DWI charges are classified as motor vehicle violations in the state of New Jersey, the associated consequences are tougher than some criminal penalties. This is because, unlike criminal cases, NJ courts do not allow for any type of plea negotiations for DWI cases. Additionally, while criminal cases are tried before a jury of peers, which leads to a high threshold of proof, DWI cases are tried before a municipal court judge. This leads to a significantly lower threshold of proof that must be met in order for the prosecution to gain a conviction. This is one reason why it is absolutely critical to retain an experienced East Brunswick DWI lawyer to handle your case.

DWI Charges in East Brunswick NJ
Every year, East Brunswick issues among the highest number of DWI summonses in Middlesex County as well as in the entire state of New Jersey. This is likely due to its convenient location and inclusion of major roadways within its borders, as well as an active state and local police presence. These roadways include Route 18 and Routes 1 & 9, the New Jersey Turnpike and close proximity to the Garden State Parkway. If you have been charged with drunk driving within the town limits then you will have to report to East Brunswick Municipal Court where the case will inevitably be adjudicated. DWI cases may last for several months and in some cases, even over a year. This can be due to the very serious penalties and the voluminous discovery that can often take months to retrieve and analyze. It is important to remember that it is the state’s burden to prove the case against you.
