|The Most Important Penalty for a DWI in NJ - If you lose you cannot later win!
If you lose your NJ DWI at trial your chances of winning your DWI on appeal are almost nil. Hundreds of appeals are
filed each year for DWI Convictions in NJ. Only a handful if any in a given year are won. Even if you win the appeal
the trial judge cannot stay your jail sentence or license suspension during the appeal process unless the judge finds
that you have a reasonable prospect of winning. (State vs. Robertson) If this was the case the judge probably would
have never convicted you to begin with. Thus, if you wish to win your DWI you must get the best DWI Lawyer as you
your license suspension or even jail time may be already served before your appeal is even considered.
