Being arrested for DWI is an ordeal that has likely left you shocked, embarrassed, and nervous. You are probably experiencing anxiety over the potential loss of your license, your ability to work and care for your family, fines, increased insurance rates, and (in some cases) jail.

New Jersey DWI defense is exceptionally complex and specialized. If you needed heart surgery, would you go to a general surgeon who performs a few heart surgeries a year or a heart surgeon? You would and should want a devoted and experienced heart surgeon whose medical practice focuses on heart surgery. You would want and expect a surgeon who performs heart surgeries day in and day out, knows how to react to unexpected complications, and is committed to being on the cutting edge of the field to give you the best chance of a favorable outcome.
Mr. Marootian is a respected, highly qualified, competent advocate and NJ DWI specialist. No ethical attorney can guarantee or predict results. Mr. Marootian can, however, ensure that your case will be thoroughly and professionally handled and defended. He will ensure that you or your loved one will be treated fairly and with respect.
Focusing my practice on DWI defense has, I believe provided my clients with a distinct edge, an edge that can mean the difference in the outcome of a NJ DWI case. I aim to provide personal, compassionate, professional, and thorough representation. I strive to treat each client as I would want my family members or me to be treated.
Lawyers are trained to be objective and detached. While it is critical to have technical expertise, lawyers represent people, they do not merely handle a case or represent a client. A lawyer’s moral obligation to a client extends from providing excellent legal representation to caring for the person – the human being the lawyer is entrusted to represent.
I take an empathetic and humanistic view of the practice of law and my clients. My background in psychology allows me to see and understand the significant interaction between a client’s emotional condition and the DWI charge. You may be suffering from one or more psychological disorders, like depression, anxiety, phobia, post-traumatic stress, attention deficit, bipolar, obsessive-compulsive, anorexia or bulimia nervosa, or borderline personality, all of which may co-exist with an alcohol or drug addiction. You may be coping with a unique life event such as a relationship issue, divorce, or the loss or illness of a loved one. There might be other human and personal issues, which have culminated in the DWI charge.
