Commonly Overlooked Effects of a DUI
Minimize or Avoid DWI Impacts
The initial legal penalties along with the impacts on your auto insurance and possibly on your job are very consequential. However, many people overlook many of the effects that a DWI/DUI conviction could have. It is critical to consider these effects and to consult with an experienced New Jersey DWI defense lawyer who can help you minimize or avoid their impacts.
I am attorney John W. Tumelty, and I have been practicing criminal law and traffic law for more than 30 years in South Jersey. As a former state prosecutor, former Atlantic County prosecutor and a New Jersey Supreme Court-certified criminal defense attorney, I can work strategically and cost-effectively against the aggressive tactics of prosecuting attorneys.
You can minimize or avoid the effects a DWI conviction could have on your driver’s license, your job, your livelihood, and your family. Consult with an experienced defense attorney today. Contact me if you have been charged with DWI in the Atlantic City area or anywhere in South Jersey.
Defending You Against Damaging DWI/DUI Consequences
With offices in Atlantic and Cape May counties, I can defend your rights and best interests concerning the gamut of commonly overlooked effects of a DUI conviction, including:
- A civil lawsuit, if there were damages or injuries involved
- Harm to others and resulting grief
- Car repair, if your vehicle was damaged
- Social stigma
- Ignition interlock device installation, for a minimum of one year, if BAC was tested at .10 or greater, and up to three years on second and subsequent offenses
- Possible probation
I also work to protect my clients throughout South Jersey from the impacts of DUI on their auto insurance coverage, including greatly increased premiums and possible loss of insurance, and the impacts on their careers or jobs, including job loss and income loss.
