  • Can I fight a 4th degree misdemeanor DWI?

    I recently got pulled over for rolling through a stop sign and ended up getting taken in for DWI. I did a field sobriety test in flip flop sandals and ended up blowing .098 on the spot and blew a 1.1 at the station. Is there any way I can fight th...

    Adam’s Answer

    More information is needed. Seems like you have an uphill fight, however, if you acknowledge that you did not come to a complete stop and that this is the reason for the officer stopping you. It will also be difficult because you offered a breath sample rather than blood or urine. Your situation seems like damage control is how an attorney can best help you, which a good attorney will be able to do quickly and at a minimal cost. Again, though, more information is needed. Call around and get some quotes from attorneys. Good luck.

    Adam’s Answer

    You should consult with an attorney because there are various matters that need be addressed. First, your unemployment appeal where willful misconduct need be shown to deny you your benefits. Second, whether you were wrongfully terminated; in that, the timing of your termination from the notice of your pregnancy seems suspect. And third, whether or not you have a claim for slander as you allude to. Many attorneys consult for free. Look around, and good luck.

  • I have an Unlawful Detainer on my rental history, I'm wondering what the odds are for getting it expunged?

    I have a UD on my rental history from 2009, I was unaware of it until recently. the Management company no longer manages that building nor any others in MN. I was never informed or received a summons for the eviction hearing and according to the d...

    Adam’s Answer

    Minnesota law allows for a Judge to grant an expungement when and if you can show all of the following:
    1. The eviction was without basis in fact or law,
    2. Expungement is in the interest of justice, and
    3. That the interest in justice is greater than the public’s interest in knowing about the eviction.
    Based on the limited facts provided, you seem to have a good shot at expungement.

    Unless you feel you were terminated for other reasons than not smiling, yes, your employer can terminate you for not smiling and making a patient feel unwelcomed. I am sorry for your misfortune as you sound like an excellent worker.

  • Can 'i sue my place of employment

    I work 8 hours with no break and the make me work against doctor restrictions.

    Adam’s Answer

    You should consult with counsel. State law requires employers to provide restroom time and sufficient time to eat a meal. If the break is less than 20 minutes in duration, it must be counted as hours worked. Time to use the nearest restroom must be provided within each four consecutive hours of work. Meal time applies to employees who work eight or more consecutive hours.

    Adam’s Answer

    Report any concerns you may have to HR. Know that Minnesota is an at will employment state. Contact an attorney if you believe you are being treated differently because of your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability
