Franklin Lakes New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyers

What is the difference between a DUI, and a DWI? Well the answer to that question really depends on the state in which the infraction took place. Some states will use the term DUI as a way to describe the violation committed by an individual operating a motor vehicle who has their senses impaired either by alcohol or drugs. However, in states where both the term DUI, and DWI are used a DUI is going to refer to an individual who is driving while they are under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. The term DWI is going to use to describe an individual who is driving while they are intoxicated with alcohol. In the state of New Jersey, both driving while intoxicated, and driving under the influence are serious infractions of the law. An individual who is charged with this crime, while they are in Franklin, New Jersey, is going to need the assistance of a Franklin driving while intoxicated lawyer. The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall has been defending individuals charged with driving while intoxicated in Franklin NJ for over fifteen years.
