Minnesota and Wisconsin Misdemeanor/Felony Alcohol-Related Defense Attorney

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Under the Influence (DUI) Defense Services

One too many drinks before you get behind the wheel can throw your life into a tailspin if you're arrested and charged with a DUI in Minnesota or Wisconsin. The weeks and months following a DUI can be perplexing and uncertain. Will you face jail time? Will you have to install an ignition interlock system? Will you lose your driver's license? What's going to happen to your car? It may be very hard to get clear answers from the government. You can contact a qualified attorney at Chmielewski Law Office who will answer your questions and aggressively defend you.

Chmielewski Law Office understands how devastating an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can be. A driving while intoxicated conviction can result in loss of reputation, costly fines, required attendance at alcohol-education classes, suspension or revocation of your driver's license, increase in or cancellation of your auto insurance, placing an ignition interlock device in your car, and, in some cases, jail or prison.

Chmielewski Law Office is equipped to handle the complicated legal and scientific issues that often make the difference between successful and unsuccessful defense results. Whether during the civil part of your case involving your driving privileges while your DUI case is pending or during the criminal aspect of your case for violation of state law, we approach each and every case with the dignity, care and attention you expect and deserve. Our DUI defense services include:

  • Perform a comprehensive investigation - including a thorough review of police reports, the informed consent transaction, witness statements, and your version of events.
  • Identify police mistakes - including lack of probable cause to stop you, due process violations, unreliable breath, blood, and urine tests, and alternative test denials.
  • Ascertain driving privileges - Although driver's license suspension, license plate impoundment or vehicle forfeiture can be mandatory, we work to expedite a favorable outcome to reinstatement and/or temporary licensure so that you are free to drive to work, school, and other personal commitments you may have.
  • Work to minimize supervised probation, reduce participation in driver's education classes, victim impact panels or community service, and recommend steps to avoid future increased insurance rates.
  • Combat the impoundment of your vehicle(s) and the cancellation of your Minnesota license plate(s).
  • Petition for judicial review or administrative review of orders of impoundment or file necessary petitions seeking an order to any hospital or county detox unit for your immediate release.
  • Guide and inform clients on the chemical dependency assessment mechanism.

Whether it's your first DUI, a repeat offense or a felony charge, Chmielewski Law Office is ready to answer your questions and defend you through the pre-trial process, criminal trial, and necessary administrative challenge hearings.
