New Jersey DUI Lawyer: How to Adjust After a DUI

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious, life-altering event. Regardless of guilt, just being arrested for a DUI in South Jersey can be a traumatic experience. However, adjusting to life after a conviction can be even more difficult. Aside from the financial pressures, there will be emotional, relationship, and social difficulties.

Life Does Go on After DUI in South Jersey

A DUI, convicted or not, creates stress. It is a negative stress which must be managed or one could face long-term health issues. The first thing to do is relax.

By taking back control of your life, you can do much to regain your confidence and dignity. Doing so will not only help your spirits, it will help you bounce back from this terrible experience.

The first thing to do is face the fact that the DUI has forced change in your life. Coping will be tough, but facing reality is the first step in moving on in life. The courts and parole board will have imposed certain restrictions and requirements. Try not to let resentment over this control cause undue anger. Instead, follow these instructions to the letter, even if they seem contrary in any way.

Seek professional counseling if needed. Enter a treatment program. By doing so, if there is a substance abuse problem, help may be found to overcome it. Even if you believe you do not have a problem with intoxicants, such counseling and programs offer plenty in the way of practical living habits.

In addition, there will be group sessions and likely either AA or NA requirements. These will provide you with opportunities to meet like-minded persons who also have had to overcome the negative aspects of DUI.

Most importantly, put the past where it belongs: in the past. It is over now and you have your life to live

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
