DWI Attorney in Clifton New Jersey
Although the largest percentage of DUI charges in Clifton involve a first offense, there are also many repeat offenders who are facing a second or even third offense. Irrespective of what number offense your are facing or whether the charge involves driving under the influence of drugs like marijuana, prescription medication or alcohol, there is no plea bargaining of your violation. You will have to come up with a genuine issue that raises reasonable doubt concerning the charge against you. The police officer and prosecutor lack authority to simply downgrade or dismiss a DWI without a valid legal basis.
