3rd Offense

If you have been convicted of two prior DWIs, and there is less than ten years between each DWI, and you are convicted of a third or greater DWI offense in New Jersey, jail is mandatory under the law, however, under certain circumstances it can be avoided.

Jail can be avoided by obtaining “Post Conviction Relief” from prior convictions. If it can be demonstrated that there were deficiencies in any of your prior convictions, an order may be obtained from the prior court stating that conviction cannot be used to cause you to go to jail in a future or pending matter.

Without Post Conviction Relief, a third or greater offense in New Jersey requires 180 days to be served in a county jail. Ninety of the 180 days may be served in an approved in-patient drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. This is in addition to the fines and assessments in court that are more than $1,325.00, and the surcharges out of court, which are $4,500.00 to the State, and additional surcharges to the insurance company.

Please contact us to discuss your current arrest, as well as your prior convictions.

This firm is arguably the best representation money can buy. Highly adept and committed, Evan makes himself available all hours of the day to provide accurate and concise answers to any questions/concerns and put your mind at ease. I was highly satisfied with the results he and his team delivered. Worth every penny. T.N.

I express my utmost gratitude to Evan Levow. When I met Evan, I was charged with a DUI, with a prior DUI 10 years ago. Before that case was over, I unfortunately received another DUI, and was now facing 180 days in jail. In both cases, Evan got the DUI's dismissed! Evan and his team demonstrate knowledge, expertise, professionalism, perseverance, and much more. There is a passion for justice in this firm and I witnessed that "fire" in Evan. Thank You so much.

You dug through the facts of my case thoroughly and found all the errors that were made by the officers. From the breathalyzer error, to the observed time error, to my condition, to my foot failing the balance test, you dug out all the facts, and I am grateful for that. I am back to my career which is a bus driver and once again thank you. D.B.
