DWI Information

HomePractice AreasDWI Information

Providing Attorney Representation in Minnesota since 2005

DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) is a serious charge and if you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated you need information and should seek legal help immediately.

Each year, Minnesota enacts tougher DWI laws and more severe penalties for suspected drunk driving. You could lose your license, go to jail, and pay substantial fines. Your auto insurance rates may rise and you could end up with a criminal record that could impact your future and your employment opportunities.

If you have been charged with Drunk Driving, don't hesitate to call our Minnesota DWI Attorney

Minnesota has adopted Drunk Driving laws setting the standard for drunk driving or legal intoxication at a BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) of .08 or higher. In Minnesota, you can be charged with Driving While Impaired (DUI) even if your BAC level is below .08. Minnesota has a zero tolerance (“Not a Drop”) Law for drivers under 21 years of age where any measurable amount of alcohol in a driver’s system is prohibited.

In Minnesota, the Department of Public Safety automatically suspends a driver’s license immediately after an arrest for suspected DWI if a driver refuses testing or tests at .08 or above. If a hearing is not requested within thirty (30) days after being served with the Notice and Order of Revocation, the alcohol-related revocation becomes a permanent part of the driver’s driving record. This will occur regardless of whether or not you are found guilty in the criminal DWI/DUI case.
