Fight To Save Your License Now

New Jersey’s Award Winning DWI / DUI Lawyers

We Defend DWI Charges Throughout New Jersey.

The law makers and the courts are notoriously tough on those arrested for drunk driving.

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you face a mandatory license suspension and at least $6,575 in fines and surcharges if you are convicted. Your insurance company will likely discover the conviction, and will surcharge you thousands of dollars over the next three years.

Unlike other states, New Jersey does not have a work or restricted driver’s license, regardless of how essential the destination is to you, your job or your family.

For these and other reasons, it’s imperative that you hire an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable in DWI law, and who is aggressive and innovative in defense strategies. You’ve come to the right place.

Don’t Hire Us If You Want to Plead Guilty. Hire Us To Fight Your DWI Arrest.

Levow DWI Law is a group of highly qualified and experienced DWI trial attorneys exclusively devoted to DWI defense. All we do is DWI and the related charges.

We travel the entire state representing individuals in all 21 New Jersey counties, in all 500-plus Municipal Courts.  We are known north to south as DWI lawyers who will thoroughly challenge your stop, arrest, and all testing.

Make no mistake – we are extremely aggressive. Do not hire Levow DWI Law if you want an attorney to walk you into court and plead you guilty. That’s not what we do. Hire Levow DWI Law to aggressively fight the charges against you.

People mistakenly think that nothing can be done to defend against a DWI charge. That’s incorrect. There are many challenges that can be made to your stop, arrest, and breath, blood or urine testing. In the vast majority of our clients’ cases, we get positive results. We leave no stone unturned in defending our clients, and we won’t stop fighting unless you tell us to.

Our trial attorneys will thoroughly assess your case and all possible defenses. We know how and where to compel the state to provide the discovery we think we need to be successful in your case. Although most of our cases resolve without a trial, we prepare our cases as if we are going to trial.  Prosecutors and Judges know that we will try cases when our client does not want to accept what the State is “offering”.  We believe this is why our law firm has such an excellent track record of success.  We fight.

We Have Qualifications That No Other Firm In The State Shares.

Your choice of DWI lawyer can have a great impact on your case. Lawyers throughout New Jersey and across the country frequently seek our firm’s advice regarding their own cases.

This is partly due to our work in State v. Chun, where Evan Levow represented the lead defendant, Chun, in the most important DWI case in New Jersey history. That case challenged the reliability of the Draeger Alcotest® 7110 MKIII-C breath testing machine, and set the standards for DWI defense and prosecution in New Jersey.

State v. Chun: New Jersey’s Guiding DWI Case

Levow Recognized By National College for DUI Defense

Evan Levow represented 6 of the 21 defendants in the Chun litigation.  During the Chun litigation, Mr. Levow sent an Alcotest machine to an engineer in New Zealand. Through the experiments managed by Mr. Levow, it was established that the machine is in fact susceptible to “RFI,” radio frequency interference. This resulted in several concessions made by the State during litigation, and depending on the circumstances of your case, this interference can result in suppressed breath testing and even dismissal of your DWI.

Evan Levow’s cross examination of the vice-president of Draeger, the maker of the machine, resulted in establishing failure rates on the machine.

Mr. Levow’s constitutional argument before the New Jersey Supreme Court was instrumental in obtaining the computer source code for the machine. This is the first time anywhere in the United States or abroad that a breath testing company was compelled to provide the source code for a breath testing machine. This resulted in a remand of the case to the lower court so that Mr. Levow, the defense team, and the experts that Mr. Levow hired could analyze the Alcotest machine.

It was through this analysis that the Supreme Court ordered the State to fix 9 issues with the machine software, to make the machine scientifically reliable.

Through further litigation, Evan Levow was ultimately able to get the breath test results in Chun’s case dismissed.

The Chun litigation has been going on for more than 10 years, now.  Mr. Levow recently argued that the State failed to comply with the Supreme Court’s order to fix flaws in it’s programming.  Without the changes, which were ordered 6 years ago, by the Court’s own language, the machine is not accurate.  Instead, the court ignored the State’s failure to comply and once again said that this flawed machine is good enough for government work.

And that’s why we are the law firm to assist you in this matter.  Based on our involvement in the Chun litigation, we know the machine, it’s processes and the best ways to have the machine results suppressed.

Challenging Blood Tests

Mr. Levow has taught judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys the forensic science of blood testing.  All of the lawyers at Levow DWI Law study the science and attend continuing eduction seminars and training in blood, urine and drug testing

Evan Levow also represented the lead defendants in State v. Kent and State v. Renshaw, the most significant recent blood testing cases in New Jersey.

Mr. Levow’s work changed how the state is required to present evidence and witnesses, whereby the state is now required to produce live testimony to establish how blood was drawn, handled and tested.

A Respected Legal Expert

Evan Levow was recently named the President of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association (DUIDLA), a national bar association. Learn more about Evan’s distinguished appointment here.

Evan Levow is a keynote speaker on national panels and at seminars, where he teaches the latest defense strategies to DWI attorneys all over the county.

Mr. Levow has taught breath testing, blood testing and urine testing, as well as field sobriety testing and DRE – Drug Recognition Evaluation.  Evan is consulted by lawyers locally and across the country.

Field Sobriety Testing Qualifications

Every lawyer at Levow DWI Law has been trained and qualified in field sobriety testing by the same agency that trained the police officer who administered your road-side exercises, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Additionally, Evan Levow was the first attorney in New Jersey to be qualified as an instructor in field sobriety testing, back in 2004. In other words, Evan Levow is qualified to teach the Field Sobriety Testing Course to the police officer who administered your road-side tests. Mr. Levow became an instructor in field sobriety testing so he could understand the tests as well as or better than the officers. As a result of our training, we are going to know if something was done incorrectly with your field testing. This may be one way to weaken the state’s case against you.

Breath Testing Qualifications

We are the only law firm in the state of New Jersey to own both the original breath testing machine, the Draeger® Breathalyzer 900, and the newer and currently used Draeger Alcotest® 7110 MKIII-C. All of our attorneys went through the Draeger manufacturer training to become certified in the operation and maintenance of the Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C.

Because of our in-depth and unparalleled participation in State v. Chun, along with our ownership of the Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C and vast knowledge of how the machine works, we thoroughly understand the machine you were tested on and its possible errors. Just because the machine read a breath alcohol content of 0.08% or greater doesn’t mean that number was accurate, or that the machine was properly calibrated or that the person operating the machine was certified.

Based on these and other errors, we have a proven track record of getting breath test results thrown out.

Blood, Urine Testing & Drug Recognition Recognition Evaluation

Our DWI defense lawyers have advanced training in blood and urine testing, and have also been trained in the Drug Recognition Evaluation program (DRE).

We’ve studied with premier forensic scientists from around the world, attending comprehensive seminars, in order to help us identify and evaluate blood and urine testing issues in your case. Evan Levow has lectured on blood and urine testing, as well as the Drug Recognition Evaluation program to police officers, attorneys and judges, locally and throughout the country.

We’ll determine whether your blood draw was done correctly, whether the sample was stored properly, and whether appropriate testing procedures were applied.
