New Jersey’s DUI Laws
In New Jersey, if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher while operating a motor vehicle or a boat, you can be charged with drunk driving. Even with a first offense, you may get a punishment of up to 30 days in prison. In addition, you can receive up to 5 points on your license plus you owe thousands in fines and legal fees. Not only are you facing jail time, license suspension, high fines and surcharges, but you can also experience higher insurance rates and possibly an ignition interlock on your car.
Under state law, plea bargains are not allowed in DWI cases. Your lawyer must get charges thrown out or win your case at trial. For more information on getting a DUI in New Jersey, see Questions about DUI/DWI.

How Our DUI Lawyer Fights For You
Jersey City DUI lawyer Anthony Carbone relentlessly attacks every part of the prosecutor’s case:
- Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over?
- Were field sobriety tests conducted properly?
- Were the officer’s observations sufficient grounds for arrest?
- Does the squad car camera tell a different story?
- Was the breathalyzer machine accurate and administered properly?
- How were breath or blood samples collected and processed?
- Did the officer violate your rights or fail to advise you of your rights?
Our DWI attorney makes every effort to get your case dismissed or key evidence excluded, including hiring experts who can challenge the Breathalyzer results. Attorney Carbone will take your case to trial if necessary, especially if you are facing a harsh mandatory jail term for a second or third offense.
