Scott Gorman – New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney

Scott Gorman, Essex County DUI lawyer, knows the numerous mandatory, serious penalties even for drivers with pristine driving records. Those penalties include a driver’s license suspension or loss of New Jersey driving privileges, imprisonment, fines and surcharges, an ignition interlock device requirement, and mandatory participation in a program at an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center. A DWI/DUI conviction also may result in the imposition of non-legal repercussions such as a significant increase in auto or even home insurance, loss of employment, and embarrassment. This means that once you are issued a summons charging you with DWI/DUI, you are thrown into a contest where the stakes are extremely high. The good news is that there are defenses that can be raised by Union County DUI lawyers in any and every DWI/DUI prosecution, but without a dedicated and knowledgeable defense attorney in your corner, you may not even realize what your most persuasive defenses are or that they even exist.

As an Essex County criminal attorney, Scott A. Gorman has represented hundreds of motorists charged with DWI/DUI and he has frequently obtained dismissals and acquittals of DWI/DUI charges. He stays abreast of cutting edge defenses to the charge of DWI/DUI by keeping up to date on recent developments in the law and by being a member and active participant of various organizations, including the National College for DUI Defense, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Municipal Court Practice Section of the New Jersey Bar Association. He has even lectured other attorneys on the topic of DWI/DUI defense. Scott will take the time to learn about you the unique facts of your case and your specific circumstances to devise the defense strategy that works best for you. Utilizing the right combination of aggressive advocacy, skilled defense strategy, and sound judgment, Scott will give you your best opportunity to obtain a favorable outcome.

“I want to thank you for helping me and my family get through my DWI case. When we first met, I knew I was in the right hands. Throughout the process you did not treat me like a client, but a family member in trouble...I was in a desperate situation: facing a six month driving suspension, thousands of dollars of fines and a dramatic increase in my car insurance premiums. The worst part of my nightmare was not only the possibility of a DWI conviction, but I was shortly going to join millions of Americans out on the unemployment line. I was facing the possibility of having prospective employers run a background check and finding a DWI conviction on my driving record. I could not imagine finding an opportunity in this difficult job market and losing it because of a driving violation. All I wanted to do is provide for my family. Scott delivered a not guilty verdict on my DWI charge. My family and I will forever be thankful and indebted to you.”
