Every case is different. We work with our clients to find the solutions that work best in their exact situation.

DUI/DWI Penalties In New Jersey

The penalties that go with a conviction on drunk driving charges can be harsh. Even a first offense can lead to substantial fines and sur charges, loss of driving privileges for up to one year, installation of an interlock device and a $1,000 annual surcharge for three years.

Penalties get worse in cases with complicating factors, such as drunk driving in a school zone, and the penalties get much worse with repeat offenses.
