DWI/DUI Defense

DWI/Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer Representing Clients in St. Paul, Minnesota

In Minnesota and throughout the nation, drunk driving penalties have become increasingly severe.

Those convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) face stiff fines and court costs, loss of license, mandatory alcohol education classes, probation and/or jail time. A DWI conviction can result in higher insurance costs or loss of insurance. Even a first-time DWI on your record can prevent you from getting a job or keeping your professional license.

If you have been charged with drunk driving (sometimes called DUI), it is important to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. Contact me, Woodbury DWI Lawyer Justin Schiks. I provide an effective defense against all drunk driving charges, including:

  • DWI and driver’s license revocation
  • Felony DWI
  • First DWI
  • Multiple DWIs
Defense Against Criminal Penalties and Administrative Sanctions

Effective drunk driving defense proceeds on two levels. As a Woodbury DWI Lawyer, I will fight the criminal case against you while also working to avoid a mandatory license suspension, so as to preserve your right to drive. You have a right to challenge the mandatory suspension of your driver’s license. However, you must file this challenge within 30 days from the date of the notice of license revocation.

Do not assume that you will be convicted as charged because you blew 0.08 or higher on the blood alcohol test. I will determine whether the officer who administered the test was properly trained and whether the unit used to gather evidence was properly calibrated. If the correct procedure was not followed in any aspect of the case, I will work to get the charges dropped and your case dismissed.

As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I know there are multiple ways to challenge a DWI charge. I will explore the options best suited to your situation. To learn more about how I can assist you, please call 651-504-2564. I look forward to hearing from you and explaining how I can help.

    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.”

    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.”
