First Offense DWI

New Jersey takes driving under the influence of alcohol very seriously. Those who do so may face serious consequences, as law enforcement aims to hold drunk drivers accountable for their actions. If an individual is convicted of a first-offense DWI, they may face very strong penalties including fines, fees, surcharges, jail time, a suspended license, and community service hours. It is essential that anyone charged with a DWI retains the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can defend their future.

Second Offense DWI

Anyone convicted of a DWI knows that there are serious consequences attached to that crime. However, when an individual is charged with a second DWI charge, these penalties escalate. New Jersey is very strict about driving while intoxicated and aims to hold those that do so accountable for their actions. Like many other crimes, when a person already has a conviction on his or her record, another offense is only going to result in harsher penalties.

Third Offense DWI

New Jersey takes driving while intoxicated very seriously and will seek out those who break these laws. When an individual is charged with a DWI, the consequences are serious. However, when an individual already has two or more DWIs on their criminal record, they may face devastating penalties.


When a person is pulled over by law enforcement on suspicion of driving under the influence, the officer will need to determine their blood alcohol content. If the driver has a blood alcohol content above the legal limit of 0.08% but less than 0.10%, they will be charged with a standard DWI. However, if the breath test reveals that the driver has a BAC of above 0.10%, they could face a high BAC charge.

Challenging a DWI

When an individual is charged with a DWI, they are facing consequences with a serious impact on their future. With the help of an experienced DWI attorney, you may be able to have lessened penalties or even have the DWI charge dismissed altogether. There are ways that this can be done depending on the circumstances surrounding your case.
