Point Pleasant, NJ (PRWEB) December 10, 2014
Representatives with Shamy Law Firm, LLC, today warned New Jersey motorists of the dangers and consequences of driving while under the influence during the holidays, and also announced that the firm is offering initial consultations at no cost to potential clients in New Jersey.
“Working with an experienced DWI defense attorney is crucial because when you are charged with DWI you face issues other than the criminal charges,” said Jason E. Shamy, Esq., spokesman for Shamy Law, said
Shamy, who has received the highest rating level from his peers by achieving a Martindale-Hubbell AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rating from direct feedback from local judges and attorneys, explained that after receiving a DWI the motorist license may have been automatically suspended, and they may need to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within a very short time frame, in order to get their license back while fighting the criminal charge, or to get permission to drive back and forth to work.
“We can help fight these charges,” said Shamy.
The firm’s offer of consultations at no cost could prove to have perfect timing.
According to statistics from Mothers Against Drunk Driving(MADD) drunk driving in New Jersey account for 28 percent of all total traffic deaths.
Shamy, has over 20 years of legal experience, noted that in many cases it is possible to beat DWI charges, especially with the heavy handed enforcement tactics that are encouraged but are not always legal.
Prosecutors, he stressed, will try to compound the DWI with other charges to escalate the charge to a felony from a misdemeanor.
Shamy added that many do this inappropriately in the hopes that those charged with a DWI will accept a plea agreement to the lesser charge out of fear, improving their conviction rate.
However, when there is no accident, injury, or other crime involved, a first offense DWI is usually a misdemeanor, but it takes very little for the charge to be elevated to a felony.
“Even as a misdemeanor, the consequences of DWI are disproportionately harsh when compared to other types of criminal charges,” Shamy said, before adding, “If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance in Point Pleasant and Wall, call The Shamy Law Firm at 732-800-1090 or submit an online questionnaire.”
