What happens if I’m convicted of a DWI in New Jersey?

As you may know, the consequences of a DWI in New Jersey, especially a second or subsequent one within 10 years, can derail a person’s life. When someone gets a DWI, they will incur high fines, a license suspension, prospective jail time, insurance surcharges, and increases in insurance premiums.

What are some of the best defenses against a DWI charge?

Fortunately, there are various potential defenses that our firm can use when fighting to disprove the allegations made against you. Some of the most common defenses against DWI charges are as follows:

  • The officer did not correctly administer a field sobriety test,
  • The officer did not have a sufficient basis to stop your vehicle,
  • The officer improperly administered a breath test, or the breath test machine used was defective, or
  • Your constitutional rights were violated

As with any case, the defense we choose will depend largely on the specific circumstances of your case. Give us a call today so you can tell us your story and so we can begin mounting the best defense possible.
