Your .08 Or Higher Breath Test Does Not Mean An Automatic DUI/DWI Conviction

If you have a breath test result that read .08 percent or higher, the result does not necessarily mean that you'll be convicted of DUI/DWI. It is possible to successfully contest breath test results.

I know how.

Former Police Officer. Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney.

I'm criminal defense attorney Joseph M. Horn. I am a former police officer and certified instructor for the New Jersey Police Training Commission. I frequently made drunk driving arrests and gave sobriety tests during my years on the force.

Today, I use my police officer experience to help people challenge breath test results in Bergen County, New Jersey, and all of New York and Pennsylvania.

I am proud to say that very few criminal defense lawyers can match my training, education and experience.

My Unique Skill Set

I'm one of only a few attorneys in the state who is a New Jersey State Police-trained Alcotest operator (a more comprehensive course than most DUI defense lawyers complete).

I know the procedures and equipment used. When I examine police reports and test results, I will review your breath test results, I'll look for information about:

  • Calibration reports
  • Solution changes in the machine
  • Steps the officer took to operate the machine
  • Time that elapsed between the arrest and the test

By examining the police report, I can tell whether the officer followed protocol when giving the test and whether the evidence is reliable. When possible, I'll argue that the test results are inadmissible. This may mean that the charges are reduced or dismissed.
