New Jersey DUI
BAC or Higher
In New Jersey, a Blood Alcohol Content of 0.08% or higher is considered driving while intoxicated

New Jersey is extremely aggressive in its DWI enforcement policy. Police are constantly patrolling to identify potential DUI offenders, and the State vigorously prosecutes those charged with driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of drugs. When charged with DWI or DUI in New Jersey, you are not entitled to a trial by jury. Instead, your case is heard and decided by a single Municipal Court judge.
DWI cases are highly nuanced, with a myriad of tests, procedures, and evidentiary requirements. From breathalyzer readings, to field sobriety tests, drug recognition experts, maps to identify school zone limits, and police observation periods, your attorney must be well-versed in all aspects of the law in this area in order to construct your best defense.
Without knowledgeable and experienced legal representation, a conviction for DWI can result in severe consequences. These offenses entail periods of driver's license suspension, as well as the potential for thousands of dollars in fines and court fees, attendance at a state-approved Intoxicated Driver Resource Center, an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle, and even a jail sentence.
