Minneapolis & St. Paul Commercial DWI Lawyer
As a commercial driver, your career depends on you having your commercial driver’s license. That is why a DWI can put a stop to your career. While non-commercial drivers are held to the standard of not having a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or above when behind the wheel of a vehicle, commercial drivers are held to the stricter standard of .04 percent.
If you are found with a blood alcohol concentration of .04 percent or above while behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle, then you could be facing a commercial DWI. When that’s the case, legal help from an experienced Minneapolis DWI lawyer can go a long way in ensuring you obtain the best result in your case.
Quality Criminal Defense
At the Anderson Law Firm, PLLC, you can count on getting a quality criminal defense so that you can obtain the best possible result. Sometimes what may be initially perceived as DWI may not have been a DWI at all. There are times when the arrest process is not carried out properly or the testing can be compromised in some way. When there is a detail that will work in your favor, it will be used to ensure that the outcome is what you need in your case.
If convicted, your commercial driver’s license could be suspended for a year. If you rely on your CDL for your main source of income, this could have a heavy financial impact. That is why your attorney will fight for you. Retaining your license means being able to provide for yourself and/or your family.
Providing You With The Defense You Deserve
When you or a loved one has been arrested for commercial DWI, your Minnesota DWI lawyer will respond quickly. This quick response is necessary to ensure rights are not violated and so answers can be provided immediately. If your rights are violated in any way, this can be used in your favor. It is your right to have an attorney present and to receive advice from an attorney so that you can ensure you say and do the right things. It is important to remember that your Miranda Rights do say that anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law, so it is imperative to wait for the advice of your attorney before you say anything that could be misconstrued as an admission of guilt.
