Overturning Your Prior Conviction
Experienced New Jersey DWI Defense Attorney
While at first you might think it is impossible to reverse a prior DWI conviction, there is actually a procedure in the law which does allow such a reversal in limited circumstances. Although the process is complicated, the results can be worth it. Our DWI lawyer at the Law Offices of Christopher L. Baxter has helped numerous clients seek and achieve an overturned conviction to protect their future.

In certain circumstances, the previous conviction will be vacated or a court order may be entered preventing any new judge from using the old conviction for sentencing purposes. This is critical if you have prior DWI convictions and are facing enhanced penalties such as additional driver’s license loss or mandatory jail time.
When applying for a post-conviction relief, you can expect:
The PCR procedure is complicated and many attorneys do not understand it or refuse to do it. Our firm has successfully handled such complicated PCR matters for our clients.
