Your DUI/DWI Defense to My Firm

The realm of DUI law is vast and complicated. One offense might seem similar to another, yet carry entirely different consequences. As a large portion of my 19 years dealing with cases has been devoted to DUI in specific, you can rely on me to take matters seriously and defend you as if I was defending myself.

I can help you deal with the following DUI-related incidences and more:

Does a DUI Come up on a Background Check in NJ?

DWI in New Jersey is not a criminal offense. It is a traffic offense, only. That does not reduce the severity of the charge and resulting effects in New Jersey. There is still a loss of driving privileges, fines, and significant surcharges. Because a DWI is not a crime in New Jersey, it is not reported to criminal databases, such as the NCIC or National Crime Information Center, and will not be discovered during a criminal background check. If an employer asks, “Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a crime?” — as it pertains to a DWI arrest in New Jersey, the answer is “no”. If they instead ask, “Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a serious traffic offense?” — with regard to the DWI arrest in New Jersey, the answer is “yes”. There are usually no repercussions regarding the DWI arrest or conviction unless your profession has alcohol-related reporting requirements. This doesn’t mean that no disciplinary consequences can result from a DWI arrest or conviction to one’s employment.

Varied Penalties for DUI/DWI in New Jersey

Convictions for DUI/DWI offenders are often more far-reaching than they seem on the surface. In certain circumstances, the penalties or punishments can deeply affect your personal life, or last years and years. For this reason and many more, it is so important that you do all you can to defend yourself from an unforgiving criminal justice system that sees you only as a number.

Consequences of DUI/DWI convictions in New Jersey may include:

  • Jail time
  • Financial penalties
  • Educational counseling
  • Suspended license
  • Community service
  • Auto insurance price hikes

One of the greatest ways to properly shield yourself from the aforementioned consequences is to react right away. If you delay, you are merely giving the prosecution more time to try to pin unavoidable guilt on you. When you have initiative on your side, you will be surprised with the strong advantage it can give you. Don't delay a moment longer.
