Drug Charges While in a Motor Vehicle

Lawyers practicing traffic violation and municipal court defense law since 1975

Do you face charges of driving under the influence of drugs? Have you been accused of drug possession or drug trafficking because illegal drugs or unauthorized prescription drugs were found in a car you were alleged to be driving?

You may feel that, once you are "in the hands" of local law enforcement officers, a conviction, a criminal record, and legal penalties are sure things. In fact, prosecutors likely have a long way to go before a conviction is assured.

At the Basking Ridge, New Jersey, law firm of D'Alessandro & D'Alessandro, LLC, we have handled hundreds of traffic violation, DWI/DUI and other municipal court defense cases, and can provide experienced legal help in fighting your drug/motor vehicle charges and charges of driving under the influence of drugs. Have you been charged with possessing or driving under the influence of:

  • Marijuana?
  • Cocaine?
  • Meth/methamphetamines/methadone?
  • Illegally obtained or unauthorized prescription drugs like Oxycontin, Valium, Vicodin or Percocet?

We have successfully fought for numerous drug and driving charges to be dismissed or reduced based on a range of factors. For instance:

  • Can the state prove you knew drugs were in the car?
  • Were the drugs really in your possession?
  • Who was really operating the vehicle in charges of driving under the influence of drugs?
  • Did police officers have probable cause to pull you over?
  • Was the search and seizure of your vehicle legal?

If you face charges involving driving and drugs or drug paraphernalia, it is important that you fight for your rights-motor vehicle statutes demand a two-year license suspension in many instances.
