DUI/DWI/Traffic Court and Driver’s License MattersDUI/DWI, Traffic Court matters and Driver’s License issues are highly specialized areas of the law that require the knowledge, experience and expertise to obtain a successful outcome. It is to your advantage to engage the services of a skilled legal team before you litigate your case, plead guilty, pay a fine on a ticket, or try to enter into any type of probation or diversion program that may affect your criminal record and your livelihood for years to come. Having your license suspended, or even losing your license completely, is just the beginning of the consequences that can result from a DUI or DWI conviction.
Pennsylvania and New Jersey have extremely strict DUI (DWI in New Jersey) laws, and in some instances, even if you are NOT driving under the influence, you can be convicted for a criminal offense. A drunk driving conviction carries with it serious and long-lasting consequences: the possibility of incarceration, a heavy fine, and suspension or revocation of a driver’s license. Not only will your driving record be negatively affected, but the outcome may also have an impact upon insurance rates, employment, the ability to drive legally, access to student loans and one’s immigration status. The consequences of an adverse outcome in a DUI/DWI or Traffic matter can directly affect your ability to be employed in specific professions, such as the healthcare industry or any employment that involves driving. Additionally, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, seemingly simple traffic tickets can even carry significant mandatory prison sentences, especially for driving while suspended. The bottom line is that making an uninformed decision can affect your family and your future in ways you never expected.
