What Happens if I’m Charged with DUI in New Jersey?

Being charged with DUI or DWI is a serious crime in New Jersey. The punishment for driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher is severe. If you are charged with driving while intoxicated in New Jersey, you could face:

  • Jail time

As soon as you have been charged with an alcohol related driving offense, you must consult with a NJ DWI lawyer who is experienced with such cases, the charges and the court system.
