Woodbury DWI Attorney
Police officers in Woodbury, New Jersey, regularly make DWI stops on County routes 45 and 47, I-295, and other local highways. If you have been arrested for DWI as the result of a traffic stop in Woodbury, 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 DWI defense attorney with 30 years of experience defending people accused of drunk driving. I handle cases throughout Gloucester County, including Woodbury and Glassboro. The Woodbury Municipal Court is located on Broad Street. The honorable William Golden is the judge, and Timothy Chell is the prosecutor. The court hears primarily DWI and traffic cases.
Defending You Against a Serious Charge
DWI or driving while intoxicated is a traffic offense rather than a criminal charge in New Jersey. Nonetheless, a conviction can have serious consequences on your life. In addition to a fine and potential jail time, you face suspension of your driver’s license and the necessity of paying for high-risk auto insurance. If you need to drive for your employment, you may lose your job.
Even if you think you are guilty of the charge, there is always something an experienced defense attorney can do to improve your situation:
- If the stop was illegal, the charges may be dismissed.
- Alcotest results may be inadmissible due to mistakes made by the police.
- The prosecutor may be willing to accept a favorable plea bargain rather than face the expense and uncertainty of a trial.
As a former prosecutor, I know how the state handles drunk driving cases. I also know how to identify weaknesses in the state’s case.
