In addition to being the capital city of New Jersey, Trenton is close to both Philadelphia and New York City. This makes it a hub for commuters and tourists. As a result, many people are stopped for driving while intoxicated (DWI) while traveling on a Trenton roadway. A conviction on a DWI charge can carry severe penalties, such as hefty fines, a mandatory license suspension, and jail time in some cases. Hiring a knowledgeable and aggressive Trenton DWI lawyer at Levow DWI Law to fight for you is important to protecting your future.
Our firm concentrates solely on DWI defense, keeping up-to-date on changes in the laws, as well as police and courtroom procedures that affect our clients. We thoroughly examine the basis of each client's arrest, as well as the events that unfolded during and after the stop, in order to present a comprehensive defense. We are not here to help you plead guilty - that is not what our law firm does. We rigorously fight for our clients. By aggressively fighting charges, we have obtained thousands of dismissals and acquittals for clients across New Jersey who have registered a BAC above the legal limit.
Award winning attorney, Evan Levow, the managing partner of Levow DWI Law is considered a breath testing expert and is renowned for his knowledge on breath testing equipment and the procedures used in New Jersey breath testing. Mr. Levow challenged the reliability of the Alcotest in groundbreaking litigation before the New Jersey Supreme Court, State V. Chun. Evan's work in this case shaped the rights and protections of drivers accused of DWI in New Jersey, and he was recognized by The National College for DUI Defense for his groundbreaking work here. As a result of his expertise in breath testing, other DWI lawyers frequently consult Evan for advice on their own cases and how best to defend a New Jersey DWI charge.
Our law firm also owns the actual breath testing machine used in New Jersey, the Draeger Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C, and each of our attorneys has participated in the Draeger manufacturer training to become certified in the operation and maintenance of this equipment. These qualifications allow us to comprehensively identify all of the problems that can arise in a breath test so that we can properly defend you. The Alcotest machine is full of flaws, and we know what to look for and how to compel the state to provide the discovery we need to effectively challenge the charges against you. All of our DWI attorneys pride themselves on providing Trenton drivers with knowledgeable and zealous legal representation during what is often a trying time in their lives.Fighting a DWI Charge in Trenton
Trenton is located in Mercer County, bordering Hamilton Township, Ewing Township, and Lawrence Township. According to the 2010 United States Census, Trenton had a population of 85,000 people, with many of them traveling to nearby cities for work as well as recreational activities. The 168 miles of roadways in Trenton are maintained by the municipality, as well as Mercer County and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Major roads in and around the city include the Trenton Freeway, which is a section of U.S. Route 1, as well as Routes 129, 31, and 33. Interstate 195 connects the city to the New Jersey Turnpike.
When you are stopped for DWI on any of these roads, an officer must follow certain protocols. First, the officer must have a reasonable suspicion to believe that an offense was committed. This means, at a minimum, that you were operating the vehicle in a manner suggesting impairment. Speeding is not considered an indication of impairment by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If you have been arrested for DWI by a police officer and believe that they lacked a proper basis for the stop, our Trenton DWI attorneys will assist in evaluating your case. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding your charges, and we will bring motions to suppress the stop or arrest, if applicable.
If you are charged with DWI in Trenton, your case will be heard at the Trenton Municipal Court, which is located at 225 North Clinton Avenue. The court holds 22 sessions per week. In New Jersey DWI cases, there is no option of a plea bargain. This means that if you plead guilty, you are subject to the mandatory penalties that attach to your offense. These consequences can have a lasting impact on a person's everyday life, including their ability to work and take care of their children. Having a seasoned legal advocate on your side gives you a better chance at success.Hire Our DWI Attorneys to Fight Your Charge
