How Much Does a DWI Cost?

Cost-Effective New Jersey DWI Lawyers

One of the most common concerns of anyone dealing with a DWI conviction is the amount of money it will cost. Because of this, some people feel it may be cheaper and a better choice financially to not fight the charges and just pay the existing fees rather than adding a fee from an attorney as well. But most people don’t know how many fees are involved initially. You could be looking at car towing costs, the minimum fine, surcharges from the Motor Vehicle Commission, increased insurance company charges, and fees to reinstate your driver’s license just to name a few. By entering a guilty plea, you can possibly be held responsible for paying over $6,000 of fines, without including any lawyer fees. On top of that, you may need to spend time in jail as well, depending on if it is a first offense or not.

It is not worth pleading guilty and having a conviction permanently on your record. A DWI conviction can change your life forever, as well increase the financial strain on your wallet. Hiring a professional, qualified New Jersey DWI lawyer can help keep fees and other possible charges low, while possibly keeping a conviction charge off your record.
