What You Need to Know About DUI Charges in Elmwood Park, New Jersey

How Much Trouble Am I In?

New Jersey has some of the harshest DWI penalties in the country. Even if this is your first offense and your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was under .10, you will still be subject to jail time, loss of driving privileges, hundreds of dollars in fines, points on your license and mandatory drunk driving education at your expense. These DUI penalties only get harsher with each offense and with higher levels of intoxication.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

The state’s prosecutors will not have any mercy on you. You can expect to receive the maximum punishment possible or to be bullied into a plea bargain. Choosing to face a DUI/DWI charge without experienced legal representation could prove to be a devastating and irreparable mistake. An experienced lawyer gives you the best possible chance to have the best possible legal outcome.

How Much Will It Cost?

The cost of your legal representation will depend on the specifics of your case but will pale in comparison to the potential consequences you’ll face if convicted of a DUI/DWI. In addition to jail time and fines, you must also consider the financial fallout of losing your right to drive, points on your license and any professional consequences that may result from a conviction. The real question is how much will it cost if you don’t seek legal counsel?

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 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."
