DWI Attorneys Maple Shade NJ

DWI attorney in Maple Shade NJNew Jersey has long been considered one of the toughest states when it comes to drunk driving charges. Even for first time offenders, a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) conviction carries a mandatory suspension of your driver’s license and thousands of dollars in fines and surcharges (not to mention any increases to your insurance premiums). On top of all that, New Jersey does not issue “work licenses” to allow suspended drivers the ability to travel to-and-from work. This means that one mistake could end up costing you your job and much more. Whether you are facing a First Offense DWI, Third Offense DWI or Refusal to Submit a Breathalyzer, the consequences are severe. If you charges occur in Maple Shade, New Jersey, then you will be forced to litigate your case before the Maple Shade Municipal Court. For more information on New Jersey’s DWI laws and the Maple Shade Municipal Court, please read the information provided below.

What are the Penalties for N.J.S.A. 39:4-50?

When is comes to DWI and DUI charges, most people are less concerned about the fines and more concerned about the possibility of incarceration and license suspension. The probability and length of each of those two consequences is directly tied to the level of your “BAC” during the incident and your driving record. For first time offenders with a low BAC level, you are likely facing a minimal driver’s license suspension without any period of incarceration in the Burlington County Jail. Alternatively, repeat DWI offenders could be facing upwards of a mandatory 6 months in the Burlington County Jail. For more information on what penalties you could be facing in your DWI case, please see the following information:

First Offense DWI – Blood Alcohol Concentration Less than 0.10%

First Offense DWI – Blood Alcohol Concentration Above 0.10% or Drug DUI

2nd Offense DWI

3rd Offense DWI

Can I be Charged with Reckless Driving, Careless Driving and Driving While Intoxicated?

Most defendants contact our office confused because they received four, five or even six tickets for a DWI offense. They often wonder why they were issued so many tickets for other violations like careless driving, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, maintenance of lamps, or speeding. While each of these offenses is separate and apart from the Driving While Intoxicated violation, they still carry negative consequences like points on your driver’s license. However, because these tickets pale in comparison to the DWI, most courts and prosecutors can be convinced to drop these lesser charges in furtherance of a negotiated plea.
