Skilled Representation To Protect Your License From DUI/DWI Charges
While there seems to be a decrease in the volume of DUI/DWI charges, both Minnesota and North Dakota courtrooms still take these charges very seriously. This attitude toward DUI charges is reflected in the escalating severity of a conviction based on the number of prior convictions someone has. When prior convictions can mean losing your license for more than a year, it is important to do everything you can to keep it as clear as possible.
At Reichert Law Office, we have been defending clients throughout North Dakota and Northern Minnesota for more than 25 years. Our work as criminal defense lawyers has had us defend cases as severe as ones involving the death penalty and life sentences. We are not afraid of taking on cases other law firms would not, and we are committed to defending our clients through every stage of their case.
Exploring Possible Defenses Of Your Case
We understand the long-term legal and collateral consequences of a DUI conviction. For example, a conviction can result in losing your license for a period of time, as well as time in jail and fines; but those are not the only consequences you may be facing. If your job requires you to drive, you may lose your job as a result of your conviction or because you are no longer able to make it in to work reliably.
To help you avoid these and other consequences in your case, we look to pursue any viable defense in your case, including:
- Improper roadside testing
- Failure to properly maintain testing devices
- Inaccurate test results
- Lack of or unreliable evidence
- Unknown intoxication (either by being drugged or the result of being on a new medication)
- Lack of probable cause to conduct a traffic stop
We take the time to scrutinize the details in your case to look for any weakness in the prosecution’s position. If beating your charges is not viable, we are prepared to continue to represent you by negotiating for reduced charges or a better plea deal. Our attorneys will stand by your side through every stage of your defense case.
