At Barry, Corrado & Grassi, we are your dedicated team of Cape May criminal lawyers serving all of Cape May County. Many of our clients are young people who find themselves in a frightening situation, often through a moment of poor judgement or guilt by association. If you are facing charges for DUI, drunk and disorderly conduct, or a felony offense, we can fight to protect your freedom and your future.
In the state of New Jersey, criminal offenses have two categories: disorderly misdemeanors and indictable felonies. In either case, the state must prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Your Constitutional rights matter when you are charged, and arresting officers are required to stay within procedural boundaries established by the state.
You should be aware, however, that fighting DUI charges is very difficult. A person operating a boat or vehicle who is discovered to have a Blood Alcohol Content of .08% or greater at the time of arrest is considered to be legally intoxicated. For a BAC of .10% or greater, the penalties are even more severe. A defendant who is charged is required to take a breathalyzer test, and can be charged with refusal to take the test.
In all cases, you have the right to seek legal representation, and to choose Cape May criminal lawyers that protect you from unfair charges or reduce the severity of punishments. Our own Joseph C. Grassi is a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney in New Jersey, and he represents his clients zealously against unfair or overly severe charges. Grassi has years of successful experience, both in fighting cases and in having arrests expunged from the public record.
