Harsh Penalties for Driving Under the Influence in New Jersey — Get the DUI Defense You Need
In New Jersey, you can face DUI charges for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Even a conviction for first-offense DUI can result in serious DUI penalties:
- Jail time up to 30 days
- Community service
- Fines over $400
- License suspension for three months or more, depending on the facts
Additionally, if your Breathalyzer test, blood test, or urine test reveals a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .10 or higher, you will be charged with high BAC drunk driving and will face elevated DUI penalties, if convicted. Learn more about New Jersey DUI penalties.
Fighting New Jersey Drunk Driving Charges
At the law office of Michael J. Stein, Attorney at Law, we understand the impact a DUI arrest and potential criminal record can have on your life. We provide aggressive and experienced defense representation focused on protecting your rights, driving privileges, and freedom.
We thoroughly investigate every aspect of your drunk driving arrest in an attempt to identify technical errors, procedural errors, and other factors that strengthen your defense strategy. For example, if the arresting officer did not have probable cause for the traffic stop, if the field sobriety test was administered improperly, or if the Breathalyzer was not properly calibrated, we can present this information to the court and attempt to have valuable evidence, which the prosecution is counting on, eliminated from the record — weakening the DUI case against you.
