As New Jersey drunk driving defense attorneys, my colleagues and I are dedicated to helping those individuals who have been accused of DWI or operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of prescription drugs or illicit substances (drug DUI). While we do not condone the act of driving while impaired, we are nonetheless committed to assisting motorists who believe that they were unjustly or erroneously charged with a serious alcohol- or drug-related traffic offense.
As many people may understand, some defendants in DWI-DUI cases also have the complication of a roadway accident to contend with. Since every person has the right to legal representation under the law, we are ready to act in our clients' best interests. Having said that, we must from time to time question the choices that some individuals make when they mix alcohol and automobiles; setting oneself up for potential injury or death is one scenario that comes immediately to mind.
Regardless of one's stance on drinking and driving, it can be assumed most people know that adding an injury-related or fatal traffic accident to a drunk driving arrest is not the best situation. We do not intend to come off as preachy, but when speaking with friends and colleagues, we often recommend prudence when going out for a drink or two. Quite simply, when it comes to drunk driving and other DWI-DUI violations, we highly recommend that people not make things worse on themselves by pulling another person or persons into their mistake.
