Charged With Drunk Driving? Don’t Give Up Hope
Getting arrested for drunk driving in New Jersey is not a small matter. Depending in part on your age, your blood alcohol content (BAC) and whether you’ve been arrested for DUI before, if you’re facing drunk driving charges, you could lose your license and face stiff fines and even jail time. Penalties increase for each subsequent charge, and can be compounded by related charges such as driving with an open container, driving while your license is suspended or driving while possessing drugs. Penalties are particularly severe if someone was injured or in case of death in a DWI accident. Clearly, drunk driving charges are taken seriously in New Jersey. But there are things a skilled lawyer can do to help you regain control of your life.

DMV Hearings For License Suspensions
When you’re charged with DUI, your license will be suspended automatically for at least three months (at least 30 days if you are under 21) unless you petition the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) at a hearing. Your license will also be suspended if you refuse to take a breath test. There is a limited window of time in which you can request this hearing. Therefore, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after your arrest to defend your driving privileges, the loss of which can affect your ability to get to work, care for children or even get groceries.

- Reckless driving
- Failing to stop or yield
- Texting while driving
