Driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) are two terms New Jersey uses for the same traffic violation: operating a motor vehicle after drinking alcohol or using drugs. Although DUI/DWI is a traffic offense rather than a crime in New Jersey, the state takes these charges extremely seriously.
Possible consequences for a DUI conviction include heavy fines and loss of driving privileges. In some cases, you may even face jail time. If you are a repeat offender or if you were driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .10 or higher, the penalties get more severe.
If you are facing DWI charges in New Jersey, you may feel overwhelmed with anxiety and uncertain about what happens next. Choosing the right legal representative is one of the most important decisions you can make. When you hire a New Jersey DUI attorney from The Law Office of Steven Ellman, you can rest assured that you have chosen an experienced professional with a proven track record of success.
