If you have been arrested in Belmar, there is a good chance you have been charged with one of the following:
- DWI in violation of NJSA 39:4-50
- Simple Assault or fighting
- Public Intoxication
- Underage Drinking
- Resisting Arrest
This list is not exhaustive, but during the many years that I have been representing people charged with offenses in Belmar and other shore towns, it is clear that these are the most common.
Most of my clients I have represented in this capacity are charged with a crime or DWI for the first time and are just realizing that the one night could impact them for the rest of their lives.
It is important to realize that a conviction for any of the above-listed offenses will result in a criminal record that will remain there for at least five years.
If you are a teacher, your employer will be notified that your name has been entered into the State database and you will receive a notice. You could potentially lose your job.
If you are charged with DWI you could lose your license for up to a year for a first offense, two years for a second, and ten years for a third. A third offense carries a mandatory 6 month jail sentence.
The point is this…. you have to give yourself a chance to succeed and hiring a lawyer that not only has experience, but experience in that court is important. I have extensive experience appearing in Monmouth and Ocean County municipal courts and a high success rate.
A free consultation will quickly and comfortably give you the information you need to make good decisions going forward.
If you are facing an offense of any kind in Belmar, don’t compound the situation. Take a deep breath and a little time to educate yourself on your case and make a good decision when it comes time to hire representation.
