It is not uncommon for the arresting police officer or the police evidence lab to violate the defendant’s rights or fail to follow proper protocol - and this may be grounds to suppress evidence or dismiss charges. The officer must have a legitimate reason for pulling you over and for initiating a sobriety test, and must conduct the test properly. The police lab must handle evidence in a safe and proper manner and perform the testing correctly, and the testing equipment must work properly and be properly certified and tested. We review all the facts and scour the records for police mistakes, weaknesses in their case and defenses. We talk to you and get your side of the story. We evaluate the need for expert witnesses and use them as needed. There are many ways to beat a DWI charge. We are serious about finding holes and errors in the police department's work that could result in throwing out evidence and undercutting the prosecution.
In your Internet search you will come across websites claiming to specialize in DUI. Many are not law firms but referral services that deal your case out to contract attorneys. You won't know who you are getting or what their qualifications are. You will also come across lawyers not located in Cape May County who may end up sending other lawyers to cover for them in court. If no office location is listed on the website it should be a red flag. We actually are located in Cape May County. You can meet us face-to-face and the lawyer you meet with will be the lawyer standing next to you in court. When you use a local attorney you get all the benefits of the 'home team.' We are members of the Cape May County Bar Association and we appear regularly in the Cape May County courts.
