Experienced New Jersey Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys

If you’ve recently been charged with a DWI or DUI, you likely already know that you are in serious trouble. NJ’s drunk driving laws are among the strictest in the country, and you could be facing a license suspension, points on your license, fines and/or jail time. The law is very clear, and the prosecuting attorney will not have any mercy on you. The state is going to pursue the maximum punishment for your offense – so you need to make sure that you’re protected. Your first and immediate action after being charged with driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated should be to contact an experienced NJ criminal defense attorney.

The decisions you make following your DUI arrest may change the course of your life. Many people assume that a DWI/DUI charge is an open and shut case, but nothing could be further from the truth. NJ criminal defense lawyer Frank T. Luciano has built a near four-decade career fighting for clients charged with drunk driving in Bergen, Passaic and Hudson counties. He explores every possible defense, from challenging the administration of the breathalyzer test to the validity of the police stop and every procedure in between. If you can’t afford to face jail time, hefty fines and a suspension of your license, then you can’t afford to choose any other defense lawyer than Frank T. Luciano.

New Jersey’s Drunk Driving Laws

A person is charged with a DWI/DUI if it is determined that he or she was operating a vehicle while having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. For people under the age of 21, a 0.01% BAC or higher will lead to a DUI charge, while a CDL driver is charged with a DWI/DUI in NJ if his or her BAC is 0.04% or higher. Penalties for your DWI/DUI offense will vary based on how high your BAC was and how many previous drunk driving offenses you’ve been convicted of.

Potential Penalties You Could Be Facing:

  • Thousands of dollars in fines and surcharges
  • Loss of license from several months to multiple years
  • Mandatory community service
  • Up to 6 months in jail

A DWI/DUI conviction will hurt you financially and potentially compromise your livelihood. DUI defense lawyer, Frank T. Luciano has helped keep dozens of clients charged with DUIs avoid jail time, minimize fines and stay on the road. He is prepared to do the same for you.

Fight Your New Jersey DWI/DUI Arrest with Frank T. Luciano, P.C.

There are two ways Mr. Luciano helps clients charged with drunk driving. First, he can negotiate a plea deal where the offender would enter a guilty plea in exchange for a lenient sentence.

In order to find flaws in their case, Mr. Luciano needs to examine it from every possible angle and explore multiple defense strategies. The more time he has to do this, the better your defense strategy will be. The time to act is now. Don’t delay any longer. Contact Frank Luciano for an initial consultation at 973-471-0004.

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
