DUI

Minneapolis DUI Lawyers

Whether you call it DUI or DWI, a drunk driving conviction is serious. You will have to pay a fine, your insurance premiums will skyrocket and you may even go to jail. And you will have a criminal record that will follow you for life.

However, a conviction is not certain, even if you blew over .08. There are many tactics that can be used to defend a DUI. With skilled legal representation, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a nonalcohol driving offense.

Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

When representing you, we will carefully examine the events leading to your arrest. Potentially successful DUI defense tactics include:

  • Lack of reasonable suspicion to stop you
  • Lack of probable cause to arrest you
  • Improper field sobriety tests
  • Inadmissible breath, blood or urine test results
  • Police violation of your rights

Villaume & Schiek, P.A., will vigorously defend you at all stages of the legal process, including pretrial hearings and the license suspension hearing.

Protecting Your Driver’s License

Your driver’s license will most likely be suspended if you do not make a request for a hearing to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety within 30 days of notification of revocation of your license. Our firm will represent you in this hearing, seeking to prevent the suspension and establish other facts that may be of use in your criminal case. We can also try to obtain temporary driving privileges for you.
