Being charged with a DUI / DWI is a serious matter. The police and prosecution will be doing everything within their means to convict you. You need an attorney who will make sure that the police and prosecution are kept in check through every step of the legal process. Leckerman Law promises to aggressively and creatively defend the rights of each client.
Effectively defending DUI and DWI cases requires having technical knowledge and skills that the general criminal defense attorney usually lacks. Often, the prosecution uses the resources of new breath testing technology and forensic laboratory testing in order to prove its cases. Typically, these new technologies and laboratories go unchallenged by an attorney who is unfamiliar with the scientific intricacies involved. It takes constant education and training concerning these varied methods of breath, urine, and blood testing in order to expose the flaws of a prosecutor’s DUI / DWI case. That is why I have exclusively dedicated my legal practice to the area of DUI / DWI defense.
Over many years, I have received training in the methods of forensic testing of blood and urine for the presence of drugs and alcohol, including headspace gas chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. During my career, I have defended over a thousand DUI and DWI cases involving blood and breath testing devices. The DUI / DWI breath testing devices utilized included the Breathalyzer and Alcotest 7100 MK III-C. I have received training from the manufacturer of the Alcotest 7110 MK III-C in its operation. This DWI breath testing machine is used exclusively throughout the State of New Jersey. Additionally, I am a member of the National College for DUI Defense and other DUI / DWI attorney groups that routinely meet throughout the country in order to discuss innovations in defending our clients.
Finally, all of my clients can be assured that I will personally handle each case from beginning to end. Having a number of attorneys handling your DUI / DWI case will usually result in confusion and poor communication. A DUI / DWI prosecution can be one of the most traumatic and stressful events of a person’s life. That’s the time when you need the attorney you hired to be there with you every step of the way. It is also the time that you want an attorney who is going to fight for you every step of the way.
For all of these reasons, I am well-suited to meet the needs of all of my clients and provide the services required to effectively defend them.
