Tuckerton DWI/DUI Lawyer

Tuckerton is a borough in Ocean County and was a port of entry in the United States during the 15th century. Tuckerton is a small community with an approximate population of 3,500 people. The borough is surrounded by Little Egg Harbor Township, but it is politically independent. What was probably New Jersey’s first summer resort was on Tucker’s Island offshore from Little Egg Harbor. The Tuckerton Seaport, which is located in the center of town on Main Street (U.S. Route 9), is a working maritime museum and village. Along Main Street in Tuckerton are several shops and stores. South of Route 539, Main Street (U.S. Route 9) is bounded by Lake Hopatcong. Ocean County Route 539 extends 53.49 miles (86.08 km) from Main Street ( U.S. Route 9) in Tuckerton to U.S. Route 130 in Cranbury Township.

The New Jersey State Police and Tuckerton Police Department issue a lot of DWI tickets to motorists who are stopped for traffic violations on the Garden State Parkway and other roadways in Tuckerton. A DUI ticket in New Jersey is a traffic offense, not a criminal offense. However, the fines and penalties are substantial. They include a mandatory loss of license, potential jail time, potential installation of an ignition interlock device, community service, alcohol education classes, and mandatory fines. If you have been issued a DWI ticket in Tuckerton, you need an experienced and aggressive DWI defense attorney.

Attorney John W. Tumelty represents persons charged with DWI in Tuckerton. John W. Tumelty is a former state prosecutor and former assistant Atlantic County prosecutor and has been handling DWI cases for 30 years.
