Beyond that, the consequences of a DWI or DUI conviction can extend far into the future, with many auto insurance companies choosing to hike premiums, or even cancel insurance altogether, for anyone convicted of drunk driving. That’s why it is absolutely imperative that a person charged with a DWI, DUI, or Breath Test Refusal in New Jersey speak with an experienced DWI defense attorney immediately.
