Southern New Jersey DUI Lawyer
A drunk driving charge can seriously impact your ability to get to work, school or simply run household errands. It is our goal to shield you from these consequences and preserve your ability to live your life.
I am Joseph J. Rodgers, a DUI attorney with decades of experience defending clients against a broad range of charges. I understand that the consequences — loss of driving privileges, jail time, fines, addition of an ignition interlock device on your car, increased insurance premiums — can be devastating. These penalties can have serious ramifications across nearly all aspects of your life. I will fight to get your charges reduced or dismissed or defend you in court if trial litigation becomes necessary.
Drunk Driving Defense Attorney In Southern New Jersey
By carefully examining all aspects of your charge, a skilled lawyer can uncover certain facts that will help create a strong defense. In many situations, I can challenge the validity of the initial traffic stop, or the breath test results. A breath test can be challenged by asking numerous questions, including:
- Was the officer properly trained on the machine’s operation?
- Was the machine properly cleaned and stored between uses?
- Was the machine properly calibrated before testing?
- Did any outside factors influence the machine’s results?
By thoroughly investigating the factors surrounding your charge, I will fight to keep points from being added to your driving record and limit your exposure to the other severe consequences. If necessary, I can even consult with experts to fight the charges against you.
