The police in Gloucester Township write more DWI charges than almost any in Camden County. This makes sense given that it ranks fourth in size and third in population. The presence of a major highway like the Atlantic City Expressway also helps inflate the number charged with DUI in this municipality. If you were stopped and arrested for violating N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 (“Driving while intoxicated”) in Gloucester Township, you need to mount a thorough defense or face severe penalties. There is no plea bargaining of your charge so avoiding a mandatory license suspension, thousands in financial consequences, and even jail for a second offense or third offense, will hinge on convincing the judge that state’s case is unprovable. There is no weapon more valuable than a skilled DWI lawyer in achieving this goal. At our firm, Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver, we have decades of experience representing individuals on DUI charges in Gloucester Township and other communities in the area. Three of the attorneys, Jonathan Marshall, Colin Bonus, and William Proetta, are even among a group of less than ten in the state who are certified as instructors in Standard Field Sobriety Testing and also by Draeger on the Alcotest breathalyzer.
