A lawyer can help mitigate collateral consequences of criminal violations, including gun ownership issues, DANKA violations, drivers license revocations. A lawyer can bring the full knowledge of the law to bear in your defense, such as alternatives to jail and preserving issues for an appeal.
The consequences of a DWI can reach into your life through the costs, the embarrassment, job and housing applications, and more. Hire a lawyer who knows how to help you save your reputation, time, and money.
Be forewarned: do not go in front of a Minnesota judge having been charged of driving drunk with a child in the car and expect that your charge is the same as “simple” DWI but with different factors to consider at sentencing. And don’t hire a reporter as an attorney.
