Camden County, New Jersey, DWI Lawyer

A DWI conviction can have consequences that are far more serious than a fine, driver’s license suspension and possible jail time. The costs of high-risk insurance, driver’s license reinstatement and surcharges can add up to thousands of dollars. If you need to drive as a part of your job, having a DWI conviction on your record can be a job-killer. Considering what is at stake, it’s important to put your case in the hands of an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.

My name is John W. Tumelty, a lawyer with more than 25 years of experience in DWI cases, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. I handle cases in Camden County regularly, including municipal courts in Haddonfield, Voorhees, Waterford, Bellmawr, Haddon Township, Gloucester Township, Cherry Hill, Pine Hill, Audubon and Winslow Township.

Protecting Your Rights and Your Future

When preparing a defense against DWI charges, I will undertake a comprehensive examination of all relevant issues in your case. Potentially successful defense strategies include:

  • Lack of reasonable suspicion to pull you over
  • Lack of probable cause to administer the Breathalyzer test
  • Improperly administered field sobriety tests
  • Inadmissible Alcotest results

My law firm has earned a strong reputation for defending people accused of DWI and other crimes in Camden County in South Jersey. I will use my extensive experience and knowledge in the defense of your rights and liberty.
