Defending Minnesota Clients Against Fourth-Degree DWI Charges

A DWI arrest can seem like a nightmare. If convicted, you can be sentenced to stiff fines and/or jail time. You can lose your right to drive for months, years or, in some cases, forever. Depending on your blood alcohol level, your vehicle can be confiscated – even on a first offense. A DWI can result in higher insurance rates and fewer job options. It can jeopardize your personal and professional lives.

  • Ignition interlock: We can help accelerate the process of enrolling in the ignition interlock program, work to avoid the use of an ignition interlock device entirely or minimize the amount of time it must be installed.
  • Multiple DWIs: Consequences for conviction become increasingly harsh with every DWI arrest.
  • DWI and implied consent: If you do not address this aspect of your case, a DWI can remain on your driving record forever – even if you are never convicted of DWI in criminal court.
  • Vehicular homicide: We will defend you against these charges whether or not circumstances included a DWI arrest.
