Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges

New Jersey imposes harsh penalties for those convicted of drunk driving. Your driver's license will be automatically suspended after your first offense. When you get it back, you may have to install an ignition interlock device on your car, at your expense. Penalties get worse with any repeat offenses, and you will serve mandatory jail time after a third offense.

These penalties are just the beginning of the way a DUI conviction can hold you back.

You can defend against drunk driving charges. However, it is crucial to your chances of success that you have help from a skilled lawyer.

At the Law Office of Khari Moore in Newark, New Jersey, we have experience defending clients in cases involving issues such as:

  • DUI
  • Out-of-state DUI
  • Traffic violations
  • Open containers
  • Ignition interlock devices

We develop the strategies to bring our clients the best results, and advocate forcefully for them in court.

Attacking The Evidence

In many cases, the strongest defense is to attack the credibility of the evidence used by the prosecution. The authorities often rely upon breath tests that are meant to measure blood alcohol content. However, these tests are less reliable than many people believe. In some cases, we call an expert witness to testify about the problems with these tests, which puts a hole in the prosecution's case against our clients.

When we represent you, we investigate the circumstances of your arrest, looking for signs when the police might have exceeded their authority. If they conducted an unlawful search or arrest, the evidence gathered must be suppressed from court.

Even when the evidence against you is strong, we help you find alternatives and accommodations that will reduce the points held against your licenses and lessen the damage these charges can do to your personal and professional life.
