If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), you want an experienced attorney to protect your constitutional rights. A conviction for drunk driving can lead to substantial fines and penalties, as well as jail time. You can also face the loss of driving privileges, higher auto insurance premiums, and disqualification for certain professions.
At the law offices of Keith, Winters & Wenning, L.L.C., we bring decades of experience to people in New Jersey who have been charged with drinking and driving. Attorney Michael Wenning, a former Monmouth County prosecutor, knows how the state prepares these types of cases, and he can use his knowledge to protect your rights. Attorney Wenning is also a Certified Criminal Defense Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court, a designation held by less than three percent of lawyers statewide.

New Jersey DUI Attorneys
We handle all matters related to a drunk driving charge, from the administrative proceeding to determine the status of your driving privileges to the criminal hearing to set penalties. We work with people facing their first criminal charge as well as repeat offenders. We defend local residents as well as out-of-state travelers through the area, including individuals carrying a commercial driver’s license (CDL).
When you hire us to defend you against a DUI or DWI charge, we will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest. We will review police records to determine whether there was probable cause to pull you over, and whether law enforcement officials notified you of your rights before you made any statements. We will question witnesses to verify that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were correctly administered. If your rights were violated, we will seek the exclusion of evidence and/or the dismissal of all charges.
If acquittal is not a realistic option, we will use our experience to help minimize the consequences of a plea or conviction. When appropriate, we can help get your sentence reduced through diversionary programs, including substance abuse counseling or driving school programs.
