Minneapolis DWI Lawyer & Attorney

If you have been arrested for a DWI offense, then you are most likely worried and concerned about the legal ramifications. No one wants to be convicted of a DWI charge, regardless of whether it is a first degree or fourth degree offense.   There are numerous civil and criminal legal consequences to a DWI.   Challenges to civil license revocations are heard at an Implied Consent court trial (Judge Only).  The DWI criminal charge is heard in criminal court through a separate legal process.

Understanding Minnesota Implied Consent Laws

A license revocation implied consent hearing is different from a criminal court hearing.  Implied consent hearings are civil hearings most commonly used to get your driving privileges reinstated and/or get your license revocation rescinded. Although implied consent hearings are often based on the same legal and factual evidence of the criminal case, it is during this hearing that you are able to defend your rights to drive and remain on the road.

Having your license revoked can cause financial problems for you and your family. A license revocation will cost at least the license reinstatement fee. You may be eligible for a ‘work permit’ during your revocation. In some instances you may have your license plates revoked and be issued special plates ‘whiskey plates’.

Implied Consent Law Defenses

There are a number of different defense strategies used in implied consent hearings in Minnesota. The decision of which defense to use will depend on your legal situation, as assessed by a qualified Minnesota drinking and driving attorney. One of the most common defenses involves the accuracy of the breath testing equipment used in Minnesota called the Datamaster. In some instances it is possible to prove that the computer equipment used in breath tests are not reading the right results and thus your reading could be rendered inaccurate.
