Refusal of breathalyzer
The police officers took me to the station for a breathalyzer test they told me taking the test was optional and never informed me of the consequences of refusal is there anything I can do. I'm not from New Jersey I'm from Virginia so I'm unaware of what I can do
In NJ, motorists are required to give samples of their breath. The Police are required to read a statement to...
How can I find/prove there is a DUI conviction on ex spouse?
Ex has attendance records for attending the Intoxicated Driver Program. He states AA documents his time by using those certificates. The IDRC told me the program is for a DUI. How can I get the DUI record on my own? I am Pro Se. I need to show judge proof of a DUI in order to protect my children from traveling with him. If ex postpones court date, does that stop the DUI from showing on his record?Any information about DUI and IDRC would be helpful.
You need to get a driver's history abstract from the DMV or the local police/municipal court. If there is a divorce...
I was pulled over and passed the field sobriety. I was still arrested and at the jail I failed the breathlyzer. Any options
Made a illegal u-turn. Officer 1 gives me a field sobriety test and I pass and he lets me back into my car. Backup officer still arrests me. Do I have any options?
They can based on observation
NJ job application asks if I have ever been convicted of or pled guilty or no contest to any crime or criminal offense? DWI
I got a DWI a couple of years ago. Pled not guilty, charges were reduced to 3 months license suspension vs the usual 7 months due to a technicality (cop forgot to read me something when I refused the breathalyzer). Do I need to disclose this information on a job application? Is it considered a crime or criminal offense? It says not to include minor traffic offenses, but DWI is hardly considered a minor offense. Thanks.
In New Jersey, DWI is a traffic offense. It is not a crime.
Took an ASAM-PPC-2R assessment after refered by IDRC for a 1st time DUI offence. Am I doomed for treatment?
After attending a 12 hour IDRC course following a DUI conviction and stupidly answering the questionaire completely honestly (marijuana within the past month), I was refered for a follow-up evaluation. I am not a big drinker by any means (a couple times a month, tops), but I blew a .23 the night of my arrest. I quit smoking after that because I got a job that preforms random drug tests, as well as not wanting to risk it anymore. Not knowing what to expect, I took a supposedly reliable cleanser 2 days prior, and another 2 hours before the eval (I wouldn't have passed). The interviewer seemed suspicious of how long my urine took to reach the right temperature. He told me that if I tested positive for thc AT ALL I would have to attend treatment. Do i have any chance to not qualify?
You are not looking at this right. I have been practicing law for 18 years and have represented hundreds of people...

Monmouth county, NJ attorney needed to help me with a DUI charge.
I need an attorney familiar with the Monmouth county NJ court system to help me extricate myself from this situation: I received a DUI about a year ago, and I had two previous, but only one within 10 years (7 years old) - the other was over 15 years ago). I failed to appear for this case though, and am living out of state now, with that warrant outstanding. I have some funds now and would like to get this cleared up. My question is, can someone familiar with the players in that area help me through this, and give me a (rough, of course) estimate of how much it would end up costing me, and also what the odds are of evading jail time, or at least limiting the time to 3 months or less (I lose SS disability benefits if incarcerated more than 3 months). Thank you!
Thank you for your question. Your best course of action contact a local attorney, either by email or phone, who will...
