Defense Strategies for Your DUI/DWI Defense
When charged with any DUI/DWI, there are various legal strategies to employ to properly defend you in these matters. At Kalavruzos, Mumola, Hartman, Lento & Duff, LLC, we have the experience and resources to research and develop a strong defense tailored to serving your particular legal needs. Some common examples of defense strategies include:
- Constitutional violations: Our lawyers will investigate to determine whether the circumstances by which the police made their stop, whether the police had probable cause for the traffic stop, probable cause to require sobriety testing, and whether your rights were violated on arrest or questioning.
- Alcotest errors: The Alcotest breathalyzer is a nuanced piece of equipment that must be properly maintained and used. If the police failed to properly calibrate the machine or were not trained to administer the test properly, we may be able to have the BAC reading excluded from evidence.
- Field sobriety testing errors: Law enforcement is required to administer field sobriety testing in accordance with the specified protocol. Errors in field sobriety testing can also diminish the state’s case against you.

What Are The DUI Laws in New Jersey?
Under New Jersey Statute 39:4-50, a driver containing a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or greater can be charged with DWI/DUI. The potential penalty varies and is dependent on a number of factors, including if it’s a first offense or repeat offense, other traffic convictions, the BAC level, and circumstances the led to the charge.
Drunk driving, known as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI)—is one of the most serious traffic offenses for drivers in New Jersey. In addition to possible jail time, a conviction for drunk driving can impact insurance rates, employment, and many other aspects of a person’s life. A person under the age of 21 years old may be convicted of a DWI with any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her blood while driving behind the wheel of a car.
A DWI conviction can remain on your permanent record for future employers, loan applications, college administration officers, and others through the course of a background check. For these reasons, it is critically important to have a qualified lawyer handle your defense with zeal and care. Our attorneys have experience in handling the unique issues that arise in connection with potential DUI/DWI charges.
