Is There A Difference Between DUI And DWI In New Jersey?

No, DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) is how New Jersey describes the offense commonly referred to as “DUI.”

Unlike most states though, New Jersey doesn’t prosecute DWI as a criminal matter, so a conviction for DWI can have less impact on your future than it might in other states.

That doesn’t mean there are no penalties though. You’ll still have to deal with a suspended license, big fines, and possibly even jail time if you’re convicted of DWI in New Jersey.

And of course, your insurance rates will be astronomical after a DWI conviction.

Save yourself a lot of trouble and expense by working with one of New Jersey’s most experienced DWI defense attorneys.
