Criminal Defense and Dedicated DWI Attorney Serving Clients in Eagan

Being stopped by the police for any reason can be frightening. But, if you are driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the immediate consequences of a DWI arrest can be serious and life-altering.

That’s why one of the first calls you should make is to an experienced DWI defense attorney who can help you make the best decisions for your situation right away. Even if you have already been charged, you should still contact an attorney as soon as possible to represent you and preserve your legal rights during the process

What to Expect After a DWI

It is extremely important for you to have a lawyer represent you as soon as possible after you are stopped. Your lawyer will be there with you throughout the entire process and advise you on decisions along the way.

After you are charged, the State will try to revoke your driver’s license. An experienced attorney will try to help you keep your privileges so you can drive to work or take your children to school. I will work to minimize the consequences a DWI has on your life. I will hold the police and the prosecutor to a high standard and to challenge the evidence the State has against you, sometimes resulting in getting the case dismissed by the Judge

Here is a summary of what else to expect after being arrested:

  • You can have anywhere from 2 to 5 court appearances, depending upon the facts of your case and the charges being brought.
  • Your blood alcohol level (BAC), as measured at the time you were stopped, will determine the way the State will proceed in your case. The higher your BAC level is, the more vigorously the State will prosecute your case.
  • If you had a child in your car at the time you were stopped, your case will be more serious.
  • If you refuse to have your BAC test at the station, do not follow instructions when blowing or you tamper with the machine that measures it, you will be charged with a more serious offense.
  • If you have had prior DWIs or have other related or unrelated criminal convictions in the past, these may also affect your case and the consequences you may face.

    5 star service. Hands down the most professional, sincere, caring, and personally involved lawyer I have had on behalf of my life. I have had Justin represent me over the past few years covering things from traffic violations to a felony and have been pleased with the result every time. Not only that, I have recommended him to friends and family and they have nothing but nice things to say as well.”

    Justin made a huge impact on my life, and gave me the second chance I needed to be successful in staying sober and living a "normal" life. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is facing criminal charges, because he's not just in it for the money. He truly wants to make a difference in people's lives.”

    I found myself in need of a criminal attorney as I was talking to Justin I was immediately put at ease and I knew I was in great hands. He is by far the most professional and personable lawyer I have ever worked with. He kept me up to date on everything that was happening in my case and helped keep my mind at ease and kept me relaxed and not stressed. If I ever find myself in need of a lawyer again. He will be my FIRST call. I highly recommend him to everyone.”

    All I can say is that Justin Schiks saved me from what was a train wreck waiting to happen. I had a different criminal attorney that gave me very bad legal advice and did a plea that I never should have done. I thought my fate was sealed, but Justin said nothing is ever in set stone. He was able to get my plea reduced; resulting in dramatically reduced my sentence.”
