Helping You Avoid Devastating Consequences

In New Jersey, you can face serious penalties if police catch you driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08% or above or under the influence of drugs. If you were caught driving under the influence of drugs such as marijuana, heroin, opioids or any other drug that decreases alertness, you may face a DUI charge.

Depending on the circumstances of your case and if you have prior DWI or DUI convictions, you could face penalties such as:

  • Expensive fines
  • Jail time
  • License revocation or suspension
  • Insurance surcharges
  • Attending an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center
  • The use of an ignition interlock device

In New Jersey, everyone convicted of a DWI must give up their driver’s license until an ignition interlock device is installed, which can take weeks to months. Even for a first offense, the court can penalize you with jail time, loss of your driver’s license and hefty fines. The penalties for multiple offenders are even more severe.
