DWI Probable Cause

Some people might think that the smell of alcohol on a driver who is pulled over by police is the smoking gun indicating that he or she was drunk. However, the odor of alcohol alone actually does not prove much of anything. Why? Because smell that we associate with alcohol does not actually come from the alcoholic content of the drink; rather, it comes from the flavoring that is added to the drink that gives

New Jersey DWI Limit

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently recommended that states should lower the DUI/DWI limit from 0.08% to 0.05%. While some people may tout this as public safety measure, the reality is that lowering the BAC limit will do little—if anything—to make our roads safer. One of the main concerns with this measure is the poor way the current laws are being enforced. We constantly hear of blood and breath testing scandals from all over

Breath Test Error

Truth be told, the results of breath tests are not suitable evidence to be used for DWI prosecutions. Breath testing is inaccurate, error prone and subject to numerous calibration issues. These machines use outdated 1970’s technology to produce results that are used to convict people of a serious offense. Because of numerous issues, state police over in Pennsylvania have decided to halt the use of breath tests for drunk driving. This stems from a ruling

Checkpoints

New Jersey Field Sobriety Test

Knowing your rights can help protect you from a wrongful DWI arrest. One of the rights you may not be aware of is the fact that you are not required to perform the field sobriety tests. No matter how much the officer insists, you are under no legal obligation to do so. As someone who has been practicing DWI law for many years and has extensive study and knowledge about field sobriety tests, I do

When I had the unfortunate experience of getting a DUI, I hired Steven immediately. I was very worried for what might happen. He said that I would not be going to jail and not to worry. He requested all of the relevant evidence and was able to get me a plea that dismissed the charge. I can't thank Steven enough for his help and would recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice.read more

Mr. Hernandez was able to take my case and achieve an outcome better than any other DUI Attorney I spoke with. I was so impressed by my initial meeting with him that I hired him on the spot, left and fired my existing attorney right after the meeting. He was responsive, trustworthy believed what happened to me and really was concerned with helping me out of a very bad situation. Everyone expected me to lose my license for at least six months but he was able to do his magic and I walked away with only a 2 point violation and no suspension of my license. Thank you so much for everything! You are truly the best!!!!!read more

Mr. Hernandez is the best! When I got arrested, I was very afraid. I thought my case was a real loser. Mer Hernandez showed me that I was wrong. He was there for me every step of the way. He really cared about my case, but more importantly, he cared about me. I wish he did more than DWI because I would refer everyone to him for any type of legal matter. He was awesome. read more
