With all of the modern conveniences such as ride-sharing apps and public transportation, a DUI/DWI should be avoidable. However, life happens and you find yourself on the wrong end of a DUI stop. We see about 50 DUI's everyday here in central New Jersey, many of them not first time offenders. Many of those who get our offer of help don't have the foresight to realize how crucial it is that they do everything they can to fight the charges. Their future is in jeopardy. Without an attorney who knows the ins-and-outs of the New Jersey legal system the driver will lose their license, suffer significant fines and potentially serve jail time.
Giving up the convenience and reliability of having a license are often not so easily placed aside. New Jersey doesn't have the best public transportation system, so getting to work on time everyday may become a massive undertaking. There is a large percentage of people who have had their license suspended because of drinking and driving and still get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
If your license has been suspended for any reason it's important to remember that if you are pulled over for any reason you will face stiff consequences that may include additional time before the license can be reinstated and monetary penalties.
When the suspension has occurred because of a DUI/DWI the state of New Jersey has deemed this is a 4th degree offense. That means there will be a mandatory one year loss of license and a 180 day jail sentence without a chance for parole. This is a huge increase in severity. You could be jailed for what is typically a minor offense.
That's why it's imperative not to go into this situation on your own. Find an attorney that will be able to provide a strong foundation to help you stand on. Don't let a few bad decisions change the course of your life. Contact the Simon Law Group today.
