Approaching a DUI in New Jersey as a serious event that suggests significant lifestyle changes may be necessary is a mature and rational way to make a bad situation into something positive.
While participation in substance abuse counseling will not, by itself, cause a judge to let you off the hook, judges tend to take a more favorable approach in DUI cases when the defendant is taking steps to learn from past mistakes and make sure they don’t happen again.
