DWI Defense Lawyers in Bridgewater, New Jersey
Drunk Driving Attorneys Help Clients Facing DWI/DUI Charges in Bridgewater, NJ
In New Jersey, a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher constitutes Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). A breathalyzer test may be used to determine a driver’s BAC. However, a breathalyzer test is not necessary in order to be convicted of DWI. A driver is required by law to submit to any chemical tests. Therefore, refusal to submit to a breathalyzer can also result in a suspension of license.
If you or a loved one is charged with DWI or DUI, it is very important to retain an experienced New Jersey criminal attorney to assist with the case.
The Bridgewater Municipal Court regularly handles DWI cases that arise out of the Township of Bridgewater. The Municipal Courthouse is located at 100 Commons Way in Bridgewater and the Honorable William T. Kelleher Jr. presides over the court.
