What to Do If You’re Arrested

If you’re ever accused of a crime, it’s important to do the following: #1: Stay silent. Recognize that it’s your legal right not to answer questions at this time. Police want you to converse and hope you’ll admit the crime. In this scenario, tell the officer you’re invoking the right not to speak and that… Continue Reading

Ocean County DWI/DUI Attorney

Ocean County is known for its many fine beaches and relaxed lifestyle. Unfortunately, police issue many DWI citations to visitors and residents of the area.

If you have been arrested for DUI, the first thing you need to know is that the citation you have received is more than a simple traffic ticket. If you are convicted, you will lose your driver’s license for a period of time, you may have to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle, and you may even go to jail. In addition, your DWI conviction will stay on your record. A subsequent DUI conviction in New Jersey or any other state will result in harsher penalties.

There are many potential defenses however. With an experienced advocate on your side, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a nonalcohol driving offense.

I am John W. Tumelty, a criminal defense attorney with 30 years of experience handling DWI cases. I aggressively defend the rights and freedom of my clients, working hard to obtain the best possible outcome for every client.

Aggressive Defense of DWI Charges

In a DWI case, there may be one or more ways to overcome the charge. The police must have probable cause to stop your vehicle. The officer must follow proper procedures when investigating you and performing field sobriety tests. The breath test machine must be in proper working order and the tests must be administered correctly.

At my law firm, I aggressively defend people arrested for DWI in Ocean County, Atlantic County, and other parts of South Jersey. I will work tirelessly to obtain positive results for you.
