New Jersey takes DUI and DWIs very seriously. If your license was suspended or revoked as a result of a DUI or DWI, it is strongly advised that you reach out to an experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney to determine potential defenses for your charges and to see if you qualify for a hardship license. The Law Office of Kevin T. Conway is committed to protecting your rights.
