The first step in the Minnesota DWI process is normally a traffic stop of car accident. If the police suspect you of DWI, they may issue a citation for DWI, notify the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and/or take your driver’s license.

If you are criminally charged, you will have to go to court where you may have an Arraignment, First Appearance, Rule 5, Rule 8, Pretrial, Omnibus Hearing, Settlement Conference, and a Trial.

If you have been accused of DWI, you need a strong defense that the powerful advocates at Halberg Criminal Defense can provide who understand the DWI Process and is prepared and willing and able to aggressively protect your rights at each stage of the proceedings.
