New Jersey’s standard for out of state DWI convictions is that if they are the result of driving with a blood alcohol content in excess of .08%, then they are included as prior offenses.
Your attorney’s job in cases like this is to argue that a prior conviction in another state was caused by a procedural error in the other jurisdiction, and that the conviction won’t fall under New Jersey’s purview.
These are not easy cases to make, and judges tend to approach such claims with some skepticism, but it is possible to exclude a prior out-of-state DWI conviction.
Attorney Matthew Reisig has been defending people charged with DWI in New Jersey for nearly two decades, and has argued DWI law before the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
He has helped more 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction on DWI charges.
