Paulsboro DWI Attorney

Police make frequent stops for DWI on County Route 44 and Highway 130 in Paulsboro, New Jersey. If you have been charged with drunk driving as a result of a DWI stop in Paulsboro, call me at 609-390-4600 for a free case evaluation. I can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

My name is John W. Tumelty, a local criminal attorney with 30 years of experience defending people charged with DWI. I handle cases throughout Gloucester County, including Paulsboro and Woodbury. The honorable William Golden is the judge for the Paulsboro Municipal Court, and John Alice is the prosecutor. The court hears primarily DWI, traffic and petty criminal offenses such as disorderly persons and ordinance violations.

Defending You Against a Serious Charge

Many people who face DWI charges are in a state of shock and denial. While the response is understandable, it can keep you from taking needed action. There are defenses to a DWI stop. However, the longer you wait, the less time your attorney will have to prepare your defense.

Even if you failed a Breathalyzer test, there is always something an experienced defense attorney can do to improve your situation:

  • Depending on the facts of your case, it may be possible to negotiate a plea bargain to a less serious offense.
  • If the police did not have a valid reason for stopping you, the DWI charge may be dismissed.
  • If the police made mistakes in administering the Alcotest, the results may be inadmissible.

As a former prosecutor, I know how the state handles DWI cases. I also know how to identify and exploit weaknesses in the state’s case.
