If you’re convicted of a first DWI in New Jersey, you’ll face a $1,000 surcharge for each of the next three years.
This is on top of the other penalties you’ll accrue, including loss of your driver’s license for up to year, time in an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center, and possibly even jail.
Aside from the surcharge, you’ll have to pay fines and fees of hundreds of additional dollars if you’re convicted.
The best way to avoid surcharge costs, a lost license, and even time in jail is to work with an experienced New Jersey DWI defense lawyer who can protect you from the worst outcomes in your DWI case.
While many people think that being charged means conviction is simply a formality, the truth is that every DWI case has weaknesses, and a knowledgeable DWI attorney can make sure you have the highest level of representation available.
Matthew Reisig has helped more than 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction of DWI charges in our state.
