First Time DWI
Tough DWI Defense in Cherry Hill
Most people who are arrested for DWI are not career criminals—they
are normal, everyday people who simply made a mistake. Many of these people
incorrectly assume that if they plead guilty to DWI charges, the judge
will “go easy” on them due to their clean driving record and
lack of criminal history. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. If you’re
facing any type of DWI charges, it’s crucial to retain an attorney
who can build a tough defense on your behalf.
