Do I need a lawyer if I get a DUI/DWI in Minnesota?

Answer

Yes. Minnesota’s laws on DUI and DWI are some of the most complicated. Not only should you be concerned about the criminal consequences (jail, fines, probation, etc.), but also other collateral consequences such as loss of license (license revocation), whiskey plates (license plate impoundment), and loss of vehicle (vehicle forfeiture).

A lawyer/attorney will be able to spot any legal issues that might result in reduction or dismissal of charges. A lawyer/attorney will also be able to navigate all of the collateral consequences. In order to challenge a license loss (license revocation) or loss of vehicle (vehicle forfeiture), a separate lawsuit or challenge needs to be filed with the court.
