Cranford, New Jersey has a vibrant downtown with shopping, river vistas, parks and many great restaurants and bars. Unfortunately, there are times when the police are forced to pull people over and charge them with drunk driving.  In this scenario, it is important to remember that you do not have the right to refuse a breathalyzer.  Refusing a breathalyzer is also a serious offense.  It is also important to consult with an experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney.

Anyone driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher is guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI).  However, a driver whom the police believe is impaired by alcohol can also be found guilty of DWI / DUI.  Police officers are trained to detect driver impairment as a result of alcohol and a person can be convicted based upon an officer’s observations alone.

The penalties for driving while intoxicated/driving under the influence are severe.   Those convicted of drunk driving face stiff fines and surcharges, loss of driving privileges and possibly incarceration.  Subsequent DWI / DUI convictions may result in even higher fines and mandatory jail.

DWI/DUI charges are handled by the Cranford Municipal Court.  Cranford Municipal Court is located at 8 Springfield Avenue.

I received a ticket for an illegal left. I left Court with no points on my license and a small fine thanks to Dan Sloan. Dan kept me informed the entire time and supported me even with this minor incident. I have recommended Dan to friends and family who have also had successful outcomes with Dan by their side.

I received a moving violation, and was very nervous to go to court and face the penalties. Dan assured me not worry- his confidence and well-rounded knowledge of the law are why I walked out of the court very happy. I highly recommend Dan Sloan and will only call him for any other issue I should face.
