Minneapolis DWI Attorney
Caught driving under the influence?
If you have been arrested and charged with DUI in Minneapolis, a DUI defense lawyer from Martin Law Offices will carefully manage every aspect of your defense case.
The firm aggressively fights drunk driving charges and works tirelessly to keep you out of prison so you can be with your family. A trusted attorney from the firm will take the time to completely review the evidence and find the best defense opportunities for you in your case. Chapter 169A of the
2011 Minnesota Statutes talks about the rules and regulations regarding driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Anyone even suspected of driving under the influence may be asked to perform a breath test,
blood alcohol test, or urine test, to determine legal sobriety.
If you are stopped by law enforcement, there are specific rules that should be followed:
- Give the officer your driver's license and proof of insurance
- DO NOT admit to anything
- Politely refuse to answer any questions
- Politely refuse to conduct any field sobriety tests
- Contact a lawyer before you test at the police station
- Continue to politely refuse to make any statements
Talking to law enforcement officials can usually only make matters worse, we want to remind you of your legal right to remain silent. The police already believe you to be guilty which is why they arrested you in the first place. By representing yourself you create a high risk of incriminating yourself and you may not know all the legalities involved in the criminal proceedings. The attorneys at the firm are intimately familiar with criminal law and have the extensive training and experience to negotiate and litigate any criminal offense no matter the severity.
