DWI Offenses

Camden County NJ DWI Lawyer

DUI Defense Attorney Fighting for Clients in Southern New Jersey

Winslow NJ DWI LawyersTechnically, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a motor vehicle violation, not a criminal offense, in New Jersey. Although one might associate a traffic infraction with a minor event, minimal penalties, and a quick court appearance, this is far from true when the offense in question is driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence of drugs (DUI). In fact, New Jersey has distinct requirements for DWI proceedings and imposes harsh penalties upon those convicted of DWI offenses. For example, a conviction for a first offense DWI may result in loss of your driving privileges for between 3 and 7 months, while a conviction for a third offense DWI requires a mandatory driver’s license suspension for 10 years. The State imposes strict sentencing guidelines in DWI cases, disallowing prosecutorial or judicial discretion in the imposition of these sentences. In other words, there is no room to negotiate a DWI sentence. Thus, the stakes are infinitely higher in a New Jersey DWI case.

DWI offenses vary based on the specific substance involved, meaning drugs or alcohol, the driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the offense, the number (if any) of previous DWI or DUI convictions in the person’s past, whether or not the driver submitted to or refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, and the location of the motor vehicle stop (i.e. in a school zone). Mr. Fay is well-versed in DWI law in New Jersey, and he aggressively defends clients charged with all types of driving under the influence offenses, including:
