Atlantic City DUI Defense Lawyer for Fatal Accidents

Aggressive Defense of Vehicular Homicide Charges

Potential penalties for a DWI related vehicular homicide in New Jersey are exceedingly harsh. If you face such a charge, you need an aggressive and experienced DUI lawyer on your side as soon as possible.

I am John W. Tumelty, a defense attorney and former prosecutor with 30 years of experience in criminal law. I have extensive trial experience, and I am certified as a trial attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court. When defending you, my law firm will work tirelessly to get the desired outcome.

You are facing the biggest challenge of your life. I will stand by you during this difficult time, fighting for your rights and freedom.

Contact me today to schedule your free initial consultation.

A Comprehensive Defense Effort

As your attorney, I will examine every aspect of your case, looking for flaws in the state’s case. This could include investigations by an accident reconstruction professional, a toxicologist or forensic chemist, and other professionals. In particular, I will review the blood, urine or breath test results, as well as other evidence.

The standards for conviction in a vehicular homicide case are similar to those in a DWI accident involving injuries. The state must show that you were not only drunk, but also “reckless” in your driving behavior. I will leave no stone unturned when representing you.

New Jersey Alcohol-Related Accident Attorney

Before entering private practice, I served as an Assistant Prosecutor in Atlantic County. In that position and as a defense attorney, I handled numerous drunk driving accident cases. I aggressively defend people accused of DWI-related charges throughout South Jersey, including Ocean County, Cumberland County, Gloucester County and Cape May County.

I will fight for your rights and freedom, every step of the way.
