Attorneys for DUI & DWI Issues
Park & Caporrino is the team of attorneys with the ideal skills and expertise to handle DUI & DWI charges for our clients. DUI and DWI translate to the same charge, and our attorneys have assisted countless clients facing legal repercussions for DUI charges in New York and New Jersey to resolve their issues. DWI stands for “Driving While Intoxicated,” and DUI stands for “Driving Under the Influence.” They both refer to a driver operating a motor vehicle while they are under the chemical influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. This influence impairs the driver’s mental faculties and driving while in this impaired state is illegal. Make sure that your legal rights and interests are sufficiently advocated by an attorney with experience in handling DUI and DWI charges like those at Park & Caporrino.
What Constitutes a DWI Charge
A driver is found guilty of DUI or DWI when their drug levels or blood-alcohol levels surpass the legal limit. Each state has its own specific legal limit to which their state laws adhere. Obtaining a conviction does not always require the results of a breathalyzer test. The observations of the defendant by a qualified police officer or the results from conducting a field sobriety test will suffice for a DWI conviction. The penalties for a DUI or DWI vary from state to state, just like their accepted blood-alcohol legal limit. Factors like your blood-alcohol concentration level, driving history, and the circumstances of your DUI arrest affect the determined fines or sentences. Contact our attorneys immediately if you get arrested for a DUI, and we’ll clarify the applicable state laws and your legal options.

Getting a DWI in New Jersey
When you operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of a chemical or controlled substance or alcohol that impairs your mental faculties, it’s known as a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). Depending on an individual state’s standards, if your drug levels or blood-alcohol levels are above the legal limit, then the state can find you guilty of a DWI. The penalties for a DWI vary from state to state, just like the maximum levels of blood-alcohol concentration. Your driving history, the circumstances involved in your DWI arrest, your blood-alcohol concentration level, and other factors impact any fines and sentences. The sound decision for getting arrested for a DWI is to contact our attorneys immediately, so we can better explain your legal options and the state laws.
