Need a Minnesota DWI Attorney? Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious offense that can result in loss of driving privileges, significant financial penalties, and even jail time. If you are charged with a DWI, hiring an attorney to represent you would be very beneficial. An experienced DWI attorney can provide you with a range of services that will ensure that your rights are represented and your potential penalties are minimized.
When you hire a DWI attorney, the first thing that they will be able to do is provide you with a consultation. The attorney will be able to review your case, the police reports, medical reports, and a variety of information to determine how significant your situation is. They will then be able to explain to you what potential punishments you are facing and what legal steps can be taken to help minimize your penalties.
Negotiations with Prosecutors
Due to the amount of cases that a local court system sees, most prosecutors would prefer that a DWI is handled outside of the courtroom. Because of this, the attorney will be able to negotiate with the prosecutors to determine a penalty that is fair for your situation. This can often lead to a much lower penalty than the maximum and could even have the charge completely stricken from your record.
In the unlikely scenario that the attorney is not able to negotiate with the prosecutor, they will be able to handle your case in court as well. This can include preparing your case for presentation, handling all deliberations, and even handling an appeal if it is necessary.
