Out-of-State DWI Convictions

Arrested for DWI in Atlantic County or Cape May County?

While each state has its own DWI/DUI laws, all states have reciprocity when it comes to drunk driving convictions. This means that if you are a resident of another state, a DWI conviction in New Jersey can result in the suspension of your driver’s license. Likewise, a New Jersey resident who is convicted of DWI/DUI in another state will have his or her license suspended in New Jersey. And convictions in any state will stay on your record, meaning that a subsequent drunk driving conviction in your home state can result in enhanced penalties.

I am John W. Tumelty, a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience defending people accused of DWI in South Jersey, including many visitors to Atlantic City, the Jersey Shore and Cape May County. I have compiled a successful record in such cases, having obtained numerous dismissals and acquittals, even in cases that seemed open and shut at the time.

When you retain my law firm to represent you, I will work diligently to defend your rights and freedom, and to obtain the best possible outcome for you.

You Deserve a Strong Defense

If you have been arrested for DWI in New Jersey, the stakes are too high to settle for anything less than a strong and effective defense effort.

There are dozens of ways to win a DWI case, and I will consider them all. As your lawyer, I will undertake a comprehensive review of the events leading up to your arrest, looking for flaws in the state’s case. If I can show that the police did not have probable cause to stop your vehicle or that the Alcotest results are not reliable, it could result in a dismissal of the charge or a reduction to a non-DWI driving offense. If your case goes to trial, I will use my experience and trial advocacy skills to vigorously defend your rights and freedom.

An out-of-state DWI conviction will have the same effect as a conviction in your home state. Don’t take your case lightly — get legal help today.
