Because of New Jersey’s Implied Consent law, the police are not obligated to offer you help from an attorney until you have either submitted to chemical testing like an Alcotest, or refused to do so.
Refusal carries its own separate charge, and does not mean you can’t still be charged with DUI/DWI.
Once you’ve submitted or refused, you may request a lawyer for advice in how to proceed.
Consider this step carefully, because an experience DUI/DWI attorney can act promptly to push back against the allegations that police make, and can question various elements of the evidence against you before a strong case has been built.
The more doubt about the outcome, the less likely prosecutors are to take a given matter to court.
Protect yourself with an experienced New Jersey DUI/DWI lawyer.
