Point Pleasant DWI, Disorderly Conduct, Public Intoxication Attorneys
Point Pleasant, New Jersey is a popular beach community that becomes very busy and crowded during the summer months. The beach, boardwalk and bars draw large crowds making it the perfect opportunity for the Point Pleasant Police to write tickets and make arrests. If you’ve been arrested and charged with a crime or traffic offense in Point Pleasant it is imperative that you speak with a knowledgeable attorney. At the law offices of LS&P Lawyers we have handled hundreds of DWI, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and many other cases in Municipal Courts throughout the state, including Point Pleasant.
A carefree day at the beach or night out at the shore can turn into more than you bargained for if you’ve been issued a summons or arrested for committing a crime. Convictions for many offenses such as DWI have mandatory penalties. This means the judge does not have discretion when it comes to sentencing. A DWI can result in steep fines, jail time, installation of an ignition interlock device, loss of license, and community service. At LS&P Lawyers we have one of the few lawyers in the state to be certified in the Field Sobriety Tests and Alcotest that are used by the police in making DWI arrests. This knowledge allows us to understand and anticipate the prosecutor’s tactics in order to build a strong defense on your behalf.
Disorderly conduct is another common offense at Point Pleasant Beach. Police often charge people with disorderly conduct for fighting, threatening violence, creating a dangerous condition, or using abusive language in a public place. The beach and boardwalk are the perfect place for the often overzealous police to hand out disorderly conduct charges. However, the New Jersey Disorderly Conduct Statute is actually very vague and leaves room for challenging the state’s case. Our attorneys have had great success in defending clients charged with disorderly conduct and receiving favorable dispositions on their behalf.
Other common offenses that occur at Point Pleasant Beach are:
- Public intoxication
- Urinating in public
- Indecent behavior
