Frequently Ask Questions
Q. Can you tell me more about the new defense invented by your office? How is it important to the defense of my case?

A. This office has been continuously working on mathematical and statistical analyses with a statistician to develop new defenses. In defending against results from a newly introduced instrument, the Alcotest 7110 in New Jersey, the lawyer needs to have technical knowledge. Our statistical consultant has been assisting this office since the Alcotest litigation in State v. Chun, et al.

In the summer of 2009, we innovated a defense that reviews the breath readings. When you blew into the machine at the police department, the machine yielded a reading (If not, you probably were charged with refusing to be breath tested). We developed something that has invalidated and challenges forensic support for readings and has excluded breath test results in most cases where this office has been retained.

Q. What is the significance of that?

A. In prosecuting a DWI case, there are mainly two types of evidence: 1) breath readings and 2) observation evidence. The very first thing (and also probably the most challenging thing) in defending a DWI charge is to exclude the breath result from evidence. With our discovery, this office succeeded in proving to trial courts non-compliance of the instrument with the Supreme Court requirements. Because of this, breath readings were excluded from evidence. That means, a first offender in New Jersey with a breath test result of 0.12, for instance, instead of losing a license for 7 to 12 months, he or she would have lost their driving privilege only for 3 months. As you see, defending a DWI charge requires technical knowledge. Mr. Baffuto’s knowledge of the Alcotest and extensive DWI defense experience have enabled him to exclude breath readings from evidence.

Q. Is there any defense to DWI? Other attorneys told me that there is not much I can do.

A. Of course there are many defenses to DWI charges in New Jersey. You probably did not find the right attorney to defend your DWI case. Drunk-driving defense is a complex and technical field in which, in my opinion, an attorney must concentrate. Of course there are many defenses and I use everything I gained as a top DWI attorney to defend my clients. Now that you see my winning cases, you see the benefits of retaining an attorney to fight your case. You have to remember that the best scenario can happen only when you hire the right attorney. You have to see to believe it. Go to "Sample Winning Cases of DWI &Other MV Cases" to see actual winning cases.

Q. I want to fight my DWI charge. How do I choose the right attorney?

You should choose an attorney based on your legal needs. If you want to fight your case, you should choose the lawyer who will fight for you. Some lawyers may say, "there is not much you can do about DWI. I will charge you reasonable fees and I will get you the minimum penalties." If the lawyer cannot tell you what she or he can do for potential clients, in my opinion, you cannot expect much from that lawyer. If you are a non-US citizen, your immigration status may be an issue. This office tailors defenses for international clients in consultation with an immigration attorney to protect their future status in America. If your immigration status can be an issue, you should choose the right lawyer who knows your issues. If you are non-US citizen, read "Non-US Citizens Should Know Immigration Consequences" " Chun" attorneys may be a good idea if you would like to have some objective way to screen attorneys besides "win rates". Needless to say, I am the "Chun" attorney who formulated the strategy for the entire defense. There are only seven defense attorneys in the entire state involved in the New Jersey DWI Supreme Court case named, State v. Chun et al. Through this litigation, these attorneys did an enormous amount of research, preparation of cross-examination of State's expert witnesses, and learned about the machine in depth. I am the right DWI attorney for you. Go to: "State v. Chun, et al.: New Jersey Supreme Court DWI Case" to learn more about this influential litigation. It is your decision to choose the right attorney. Go to "Selecting An Attorney" to fully educate yourself.
