For a town spanning 1.24 square miles and having 750 residents, the Borough of Deal has quite a bit of DWI, DUI and breath test refusal charges. In the typical year, more than fifty (50) drunk driving offenses are filed by the police in Deal. And unless the accused was able to come up with a genuine issue that Prosecutor Shamy and Judge Basen bought into, the individual was convicted. There is no plea bargaining of DWI or DUI cases so this was the only way to achieve a not guilty. This is precisely the reason why it is imperative that you do your research and hire an attorney skilled in defending driving while intoxicated/under the influence charges in Deal Municipal Court. The lawyers at this firm possess this level of qualification as former DWI prosecutors who are Alcotest certified and field sobriety certified. It also helps that we have appeared in this court many times on DUI cases.
