Drunk Driving Accidents

For many clients who come to Sutnick & Sutnick Attorneys at Law, drunk driving represents a lapse in judgment. That lapse can lead to serious criminal charges with even more severe — if not life-changing — consequences. While most drunk driving-related arrests start with an initial stop, more serious criminal matters involve motor vehicle accidents where one driver was allegedly under the influence.

The Need For Immediate Legal Representation

Cases involving vehicular assault and homicide due to impairment by alcohol at the time of the accident are complex and require skilled and savvy legal representation. Our legal team of experienced New Jersey DUI/DWI defense attorneys comprises former prosecutors who possess insight into the opposition. They need to prove not only that the driver was legally intoxicated at the time of the accident, but also that the impairment specifically caused injuries or death.

We get to the facts by reviewing physical evidence at the accident scene, including photos, street markings and other measurements. Many cases require the expertise of accident investigators and reconstructionists.

Even with the cleanest of driving records, a driver's supposed impairment that resulted in injuries or death casts them as the villain in the court of public opinion. The earlier we get involved in such a serious criminal case, the better we can represent you, protect your rights and fight for the best outcome.

The stakes are high and go beyond just prison time: They include significant fines, the loss of a driver's license, increased insurance rates and a permanent criminal record affecting professional and educational pursuits. Even finding a place to live is challenging.
