Can’t I Just Represent Myself In My New Jersey DUI Case?

As with any legal case, you have the right to defend yourself in a New Jersey DUI prosecution, but you should know ahead of time what you’re up against.

First, there are the basics of court rules and procedures.

Prosecutors know how to make motions, enter evidence, use the discovery process, and prepare witnesses.

Perhaps more importantly, prosecutors have access to a variety of sources of evidence with which to build their cases, from dashcam footage from the police car, to the officer’s testimony, to Alcotest results, and even to witness statements that can indicate that you had been drinking.

Building an appropriate rebuttal and challenging the evidence against you is not easy.

An experienced DUI lawyer knows which evidence to fight and on what grounds, how to challenge witnesses, and whether police procedures were followed when it came to administering Alcotests or Field Sobriety Tests.

While it is possible to successfully represent yourself in a New Jersey DUI case, your odds of prevailing improve dramatically when you work with an experienced DUI attorney.
