Serving Clients Throughout Minnesota From Offices In Moorhead And Minneapolis

DWI (driving while impaired) cases in Minnesota have a civil component and a criminal component.

Civil DWI

The civil component of the case is the implied consent hearing — the proceeding in which the Minnesota Department of Public Safety has revoked/cancelled/suspended your Minnesota driving privileges and you are contesting the legitimacy of that revocation/suspension/cancellation.

Criminal DWI

The criminal component of the case can result in a criminal record, jail time, fines, and court costs.

There are further issues that arise for those carrying a commercial driver's license (CDL) and for those under the age of 21. Please contact your lawyer to learn more about these specific issues.
