Judges in New Jersey tend to look favorably on defendants who take significant steps to remedy the behaviors that have brought them into court in the first place.
If you’ve decided to attend an in-patient rehabilitation program that will conflict with your DUI court date, it may be possible to ask the judge for a postponement to give you the best chance at successfully completing the program.
The specific facts of your case will matter in how the judge decides, but remember: If you have a substance abuse problem, getting help can make a huge difference to your future, the DUI charges notwithstanding.
Prioritize your health, and let attorney Matthew Reisig take care of the legal issues while you focus on the things that matter.
