Brainerd / Crow Wing County DWI/DUI Lawyer

Did your time up north take a turn for the worse?

The Brainerd lakes area is enjoyed by tens of thousands of vacationers every year. Gull Lake, the Whitefish chain and the hundreds of other lakes in the area bring people back to Brainerd and Crow Wing County for recreation 365 days a year. However, when mixing a couple drinks in with a boat or snowmobile ride, things can take a turn for the worse quickly.

If you have been arrested in Brainerd for DWI:
Getting arrested for DWI or DUI under any circumstance is a horrible, frustrating and often embarrassing situation. However, the additional complications that arise when the arrest took place while you were out of town can make an already bad situation even worse. While there really is no concrete way to predict how many times you will have to return to Brainerd for court appearances, I understand that this is a major concern to someone who lives in the Twin Cities and would like to minimize the effect the entire process has on your day to day life. While my practice covers most of the state of Minnesota, my main office is located downtown Minneapolis. Many of my clients from up north have found this to be very convenient as the initial meetings can take place in the Twin Cities, and we return to Brainerd only for required court appearances.

Brainerd Minnesota DWI Lawyer
I am dedicated to defending your rights through the entire DWI / DUI defense process. We start with a no-cost, no-obligation consultation which can take place in my office, at your location (if my court schedule allows), or over the telephone. Typically, within 10 or 15 minutes I can get a basic understanding of the important facts around your case and help develop a strategy for your defense. There are several possible defenses that can be used to minimize or even achieve acquittal for DUI / DWI charges. It's critical to at least take advantage of my free consultation before agreeing to any plea deal or paying any fines. So many people I talk to initially think they will just pay whatever fine they need to and admit guilt in a situation where they would not have needed to. While this might seem like the best "quick-fix" for your DWI, you are essentially agreeing to a DWI conviction which can have major consequences, including but not limited to:

Don't let a minor accident change your life for the worst. I understand that being arrested for DWI, whether in Brainerd, Little Falls, or the Twin Cities can be a devastating event. So many of the clients I've represented in the past felt completely hopeless, and ended up with a relatively good outcome with my assistance. Free consultation, you have nothing to lose, call 701-353-5874 or email me today.
