Lawyers Fight to Get Your Multiple DUI and DWI Charges Reduced or Dismissed in Essex County & Union County, New Jersey

Drinking and driving in the state of New Jersey is a serious crime, punishable by loss of license, significant fines and maybe even jail time. It stands to reason, then, that the penalties for multiple DUI/DWI charges are extremely severe. If you get charged with DWI a second or subsequent time, you could lose your driver’s license in NJ for up to 10 years. Further, loss of freedom and huge financial loss are likely penalties.

New Jersey imposes a 10-year “lookback” period for drunk driving offenses. This means that a DWI arrest occurring anytime in the last decade since a prior conviction will be considered a second, or subsequent, offense. While a first offense may not require jail time, subsequent offenses often do. In fact, if convicted on a third DWI offense, a mandatory 180 day jail sentence, without parole, will be imposed. At the law offices of Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan, LLC, we examine every detail of your case and move forward with a skillful approach. We have successfully gotten charges reduced for clients in even the most difficult cases involving multiple DWI.

Could You Survive Without Your NJ Driver’s License?

Depending on where you live in NJ, the ability to drive is extremely important when it comes to getting to and from work and all other activities. License suspension is another major consideration for subsequent DWI offenses. First offenses in New Jersey can carry a three to six month license suspension. The suspension period increases to two years for second offenses. If you are convicted of a third DWI/DUI offense, you could lose your driver’s license for 10 long years. Imagine not being able to get to work or school, to visit family and friends, to run errands and to get anywhere you need to go. There is no question that a long-term loss of driving privileges in New Jersey will change your quality of life and affect your personal and professional relationships.

Attorneys Work Hard to Get Your Multiple DUI/DWI Charges Reduced to a First Offense in Newark, Bloomfield, Montclair, Orange, and Throughout NJ

Experienced legal representation can be the difference between jail time and an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program. There are many defenses when facing multiple DWI charges or DUI charges. For example, convicted third time offenders are required to serve 180 days in jail, but this can be reduced to 90 if the offender enters a rehab program. Similarly, a skilled attorney can argue that the offenders “first offense” should not have been a conviction in the first place, therefore, the consequences for a multiple DUI/DWI charge would not exist.

Take for instance, an out-of-state DUI offense. If it can be proven that your first offense did not meet DUI requirements for the state of New Jersey, a knowledgeable attorney can argue that this new charge is, in fact, your first offense. At Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan, LLC, we have worked on countless DUI and DWI cases in Scotch Plains, Westfield, Union, Elizabeth and all over New Jersey.
