Shrewsbury is a municipality which our attorneys are extremely familiar with as it is where our office was previously located and is just about a mile from our main office in Red Bank. While this Monmouth County community is not the busiest for criminal charges or traffic violations like DWI, it has far more than a handful of offenses. Whether its a stop along New Jersey Route 35 that results in someone being charged with fifty grams or less of marijuana, a domestic incident Sycamore Square resulting in a simple assault offense or any other scenario, a violation is Shrewsbury in nothing to take lightly. Virtually any criminal case results in a record upon conviction and, in many instances, you can be sent to jail for up to six months. These are two good reasons why you need to secure representation from an attorney skilled in defending charges in Shrewsbury New Jersey.

Shrewsbury DWI Attorney
Shrewsbury is a town that we would definitely describe as a sleeper when it comes to DWI charges. Both the Borough and Township have much more action under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 (“Driving while intoxicated”) than anyone other than an experienced Shrewsbury DWI Attorney would appreciate. If you were arrested for drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs, you face serious penalties in the event you plead or are found guilty. A conviction will absolutely result in a suspension of your driver’s license and other significant consequences. It is therefore important that you obtain representation from an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Our attorneys are ready to assist you by calling 732-450-8300.
