As a former New Jersey Municipal Prosecutor and a former New York City Prosecutor I am fortunate to have unique experiences that few other criminal defense attorneys, DWI attorneys and DUI lawyers can claim because I have viewed cases from both sides of the fence. And because of this experience, your chances of receiving a positive outcome can be greatly enhanced. I understand how the prosecutor will proceed against you and how the case makes its way through the criminal justice and court system. I am able to analyze your case to determine where the weaknesses are in the State’s case based upon my prior experience with cases like yours. I will explain to you how I will exploit the weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case and how I will combat their strengths.
