Do You Need A Good Minnesota Defense Attorney?

People often wonder what the actual costs of a DWI are. There are many hidden costs you may not know about shortly after being arrested - but they will become quickly apparent as you maneuver through the criminal process system.

A good Minnesota defense attorney understands the hidden costs related to DWI or DUI charges in Minnesota can include (but are not limited to) loss of current job, difficulty in obtaining job opportunities in the future, college and military, increased insurance rates, driver's license surcharges, probation fees, and the hidden costs of the non-monetary effect on your friends and family.

A typical DWI charge can carry well over $10,000 in fines after you have paid bail, fines, fees, insurance and more. But the financial wreck won't stop there. Ongoing costs can even double that over time.
