Our Skilled New Jersey DUI Lawyer Can Help Fight the Consequences of a Conviction

In New Jersey, being convicted of a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense carries significant consequences, but the accumulation of points on your driving record is not one of them. Unlike other states, New Jersey does not assign points to every moving violation. Although you can get anywhere from 2 to 5 points for all sorts of offenses, that is not true of drunk driving. As an experienced New Jersey DUI lawyer, I can help you fight the serious consequences of a DUI, such as penalties and fines.

For a New Jersey DUI, No Points is the Good News!

Most individuals may instead want points against their license rather than the harsh punishments with a DUI. If you are convicted of a DUI in the Garden State, you may face the following penalties and fines:

  • Having an Ignition Interlock Device on their car for anywhere from 3 months to 4 years (at a cost of $100 per month)
  • License suspension of anywhere from 4 months to 8 years
  • Incarceration (Jail Time) from 2 to 180 days
  • Insurance surcharges of $3,000 to $4,500
  • Higher Insurance Premiums
  • Possible job loss due to license suspension or jail

There are also other costs associated with a DUI conviction that need to be considered.

The Importance of Hiring a DUI Lawyer

The bad news of a drunk driving conviction outweighs the good news of no points against your license. You need to have an experienced DUI lawyer by your side to minimize the consequences (and possibly get the charges dismissed). If you have been charged with drunk driving in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Salem, or Cumberland County, please call me at 856-432-4113 or contact me through this site to schedule a free consultation.
