Criminal Defense for Multiple DWIs in St. Paul and throughout Minnesota
Minnesota takes driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol very seriously. Criminal penalties and administrative sanctions increase with every DWI on your record.
If you are facing a second, third, or fourth DWI charge, your future depends on the skill of the attorney you choose to represent you. Choose me, DWI defense attorney Justin Schiks. I have a record of success representing people with multiple DWIs convictions on their records.
DWI penalties and administrative sanctions vary depending on the blood alcohol content (BAC) and the number of previous DWI convictions. Consequences for conviction on a second or subsequent DWI can include:
- Fines of up to $14,000
- Up to seven years in prison
- Vehicle forfeiture
- Cancellation of your driver’s license
If you are accused of hurting or killing another person while driving under the influence, penalties can be even more severe. When the penalties are this serious, it only makes sense to have an experienced lawyer advising and representing you.
I am a skilled negotiator and an experienced litigator. I will explore every opportunity to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed. I may recommend that you participate in a treatment program for substance abuse to show the court that you are taking steps to reform your behavior. As with every DWI case, I will examine the evidence against you to determine whether the police made procedural mistakes that may work to your advantage.
Even if you have multiple DWIs on your record, an experienced lawyer can make a difference. Do not give up. I can help. Please contact me as soon as possible to discuss your case.
