Municipal Court and Traffic Violations including DWI and DUI

Municipal courts handle all traffic summons (like DWIs, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Speeding) and Disorderly Persons Offenses.  The sentence for a Disorderly Persons Offense and certain motor vehicle summons (such as DWIs, DUIs, Reckless Driving, Driving While Suspended) can involving incarceration in the county correctional facility for up to six (6) months for a disorderly persons offense and thirty (30) days for a petty Disorderly Persons Offense.  Even if you are not facing a sentence exposure, a guilty plea to Disorderly Persons Offense or a motor vehicle summons can have a lasting negative impact on your financial situation and potential future employment.   

At Purcell, Mulcahy & Flanagan we will present the best possible defense to any alleged municipal court offense and motor vehicle violation including, DWIs and DUIs.  DWIs and DUI prosecutions have evolved with the implementation of the Alcotest device manufactured by Draeger.  The increased complexity in the system used to determine a motor vehicle operator’s blood alcohol content creates the need for a more exacting search of not only the legal merits of the DWI or DUI allegations but the validity of the scientific proofs and processes used to generate those proofs.   At Purcell, Mulcahy & Flanagan we will ensure that everyangle of your defense is explored and considered.
