Experienced DWI Lawyers Can Help Fight Drunk Driving Charges in Essex County, Union County & Morris County, New Jersey
Being convicted of drunk driving, also known as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), can have significant consequences in New Jersey. You will feel publicly shamed. Your job could be affected, especially if you drive for a living. Your insurance rates will increase; depending on your driving record, your insurance company may even drop you entirely. Of course, there are legal consequences, as well. At the Florham Park firm of McHugh & Imbornone, P.A., our attorneys vigorously defend clients against all levels of drunk driving charges.
Consequences of a DUI Conviction in Jersey City, NJ
If you cause a drunk driving accident in Elizabeth, Rockaway, Union City, or somewhere else in New Jersey, it’s a crime and you could face felony charges. This could move your case from the local Municipal Court to the county Superior Court. It is especially important that you have a knowledgeable New Jersey DUI lawyer if your drunk driving case is charged as a felony. Not surprisingly, the consequences of a felony conviction are even greater than for a misdemeanor.
Even if your DWI case is heard in Municipal Court, the consequences can be significant. You will face heavy fines and surcharges, license suspension, jail time, and the possibility of being required to use an ignition interlock device just to drive your own car in the future. Additionally, you may be unable to get to work if your license is suspended. The conviction will remain on your record for many years, affecting your ability to get or keep some jobs, obtain admission to college, or receive student loan benefits. Beyond that, if you are facing a second or third DWI charge, the penalties will be even more significant.
