Union Township writes some of the most DWIs in all of Union County, which should be no surprise given the amount of major roads and highways that crisscross through the town. If you are ticketed for a DWI then you will be summoned to appear in Union Township municipal court. Although a charge of driving while intoxicated is considered a motor vehicle violation, the consequences can be extremely harsh. A conviction for DUI will result in a mandatory loss of license, and possibly an ignition interlock device, thousands in fines and surcharges, community service, and mandatory drunk driving classes. Hiring the right attorney may be the most important decision you make during this entire process. Founding attorney, William A. Proetta, has successfully represented hundreds of clients against DUI charges throughout New Jersey including Union Township. He knows the courts and he knows how the system works. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you. If you would like to discuss the details of your case and our firm’s potential representation contact our office today at (908) 838-0150 for a free consultation with an experienced defense attorney.
Major Roadways for DWI Stops in Union Township
Union is traversed by a network of local and regional roadways including:
- Garden State Parkway
- Interstate 78
- U.S. Route 22
- Route 82 (Morris Ave)
These roadways are patrolled by combination of Union Township police, New Jersey State Troopers, and Union County police which contribute to the large amount of DWI tickets in Union each year. However, no matter which agency stops you, if you are arrested in Union Township for driving while intoxicated, you will have to appear in Union Township Municipal Court to address your charges.
Union New Jersey DUI Attorneys
New Jersey municipal prosecutors are under strict guidelines from the administrative office of the courts (AOC) to prosecute DWI charges to the fullest extent and not offer any plea negotiations. For obvious reasons this can make getting a “good deal” very hard for the average defendant. That is why at the Proetta & Oliver we concentrate in pinpointing technicalities in the state’s case and exploit the weaknesses so the prosecution cannot establish the elements of the statute. This allows us to often work out extraordinary results for our clients. Will Proetta pulls from his expertise as a certified instructor for Standard Field Sobriety Testing and as a certified operator of the Alcotest machine – credentials that few attorneys in the entire state of New Jersey share.
