Ocean County DWI Defense
No one leaves their Ocean County home for a night out on the town expecting that the night will end with them sitting in the Ocean County jail following an arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI). However, both law enforcement officers and prosecutors like to make examples out of individuals who appear to be driving while intoxicated as a way of showing the general public that they are “tough on crime” and committed to promoting safety on the roadways. With strong DWI laws to support their efforts, this puts drivers accused of DWI at a distinct disadvantage.
A vigorous defense and thorough preparation and investigation are essential elements to achieving the best possible outcome in your Ocean County DWI case.

The penalties for driving while intoxicated in Ocean County are serious and are designed to dissuade you and others from driving while intoxicated by alcohol and/or drugs. These penalties may include:
- Fines and costs: A fine is a monetary penalty imposed by a court after the court has found you have violated the New Jersey DWI statute. When taken together with administrative court costs and other incidental costs associated with a DWI conviction, the monetary penalty that may be levied against you can reach into the thousands of dollars – even on a first conviction for DWI.
- Imprisonment: The more DWI convictions you have in your past, the longer the term of imprisonment the court is likely to require that you serve. In many cases, the court is mandated by law to require you to serve mandatory periods of incarceration.
- Loss of driving privileges: In addition to these criminal penalties, state agencies are required to suspend your driving privileges for a period of time. The specific length of time for which your privileges will be suspended will (again) depend on the number of previous DWI convictions in your background.
With aggressive law enforcement officers and prosecutors looking to impose as severe of a sentence as possible, you owe it to yourself to mount a resourceful and strong defense.
