Drivers License Revocation

St. Paul DWI Lawyer: Protecting Your Right to Drive

Driver’s license revocation is one of the most problematic sanctions associated with a Minnesota DWI/DUI arrest. Without the ability to drive, many people find it extremely difficult to go about their daily lives. How will you be able to go to school or work without personal transportation? How will you support yourself and your family?

I am DWI defense attorney Justin Schiks. I work hard to get my clients back on the road and back to their lives after a drunk driving arrest.

Challenging Automatic License Revocation

In every DWI case, the state will attempt to revoke — or even permanently cancel — your driving privileges. You have the right to challenge this attempt, but you must act swiftly. There is a limited window of opportunity to file a request to waive the automatic license revocation. It is important to contact an experienced DWI defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest.

Driver’s license administrative sanctions vary depending on your blood alcohol content (BAC) and the number of previous DWI convictions on your record. For a first offense, you have a variety of options based on whether you install an ignition interlock device or plead guilty to the DWI charge. You may also choose to obtain a restricted license that allows you to drive to work or school after a 15-day period of no driving. If you have two or more drunk driving offenses, or if your blood alcohol level was more than 0.16, the sanctions are significantly more severe.

Recommending the Right Option for You

I will review your options and recommend an approach that makes the most sense in your situation. Before making any recommendations, however, we will discuss how these sanctions will affect your life and what your priorities are.

    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.”

    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.”
