First Time DWI

Tough DWI Defense in Cherry Hill

Most people who are arrested for DWI are not career criminals—they are normal, everyday people who simply made a mistake. Many of these people incorrectly assume that if they plead guilty to DWI charges, the judge will “go easy” on them due to their clean driving record and lack of criminal history. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. If you’re facing any type of DWI charges, it’s crucial to retain an attorney who can build a tough defense on your behalf.

At the Law Offices of Christopher L. Baxter, our Cherry Hill DWI attorney has represented about 3,900 DWI clients over the last 35 years. Our firm is solely focused on DWI law, which gives us unique perspective into our client’s cases. When you retain our firm, we will fight tirelessly to get the best results possible on your behalf.

Don’t face charges for driving under the influence alone. Call our Cherry Hill DWI defense lawyer today at 856-235-9881.

Penalties for a First-Time DWI Conviction

The consequences for your first DWI conviction can be quite steep, and can have a serious impact on your life and livelihood. It’s important to contact a DWI lawyer early in the process to help mitigate these potential penalties.

For example, you could be facing the following:

  • Up to $3,905 in fees, fines, and surcharges

  • Up to 30 days in prison

  • 3 month license suspension

  • Up to 48 hours of Intoxicated Driver Resource Center

  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Pleading guilty will not reduce these penalties. Contact our firm today for a free case evaluation.

You May Be Facing More Charges

The state of New Jersey aggressively prosecutes DWI offenders, and they will often tack on any additional charges they can in order to send a message.

While DWI will generally be the main charge in question, you could also face charges for:

  • Refusal to take a chemical BAC test

  • Any open alcohol containers in the car

  • Driving while possessing drugs

  • Underage DWI (if under 21 years old)
