DUI & Traffic Violations

Experienced DWI And Traffic Violations Defense

The law firm of Morris, Downing & Sherred is the oldest and largest law firm in Sussex County. We have been providing attentive personal service and dedicated representation to clients in northern New Jersey for more than 100 years.

Our attorneys defend clients charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), driving while license suspended (DWLS) and a full range of traffic violations in municipal courts throughout North Jersey. We fight to help our clients avoid the serious consequences of conviction in these cases.

A conviction for DWI may result in jail time and a lengthy license suspension. A conviction for DWLS carries a mandatory jail sentence. Convictions for serious traffic offenses such as reckless driving or fleeing the scene of an accident may result in serious legal consequences such as increased insurance rates or loss of driving privileges.

You simply cannot afford to take a DWI, DWLS or traffic offense lightly. It is vitally important to seek experienced counsel in these cases. Contact our offices in Newton today to speak to an experienced traffic violation and DWI defense lawyer.
