I devote my practice to the aggressive, thorough representation of clients charged with DWI and other crimes.
Minnesota's DWI laws have become increasingly complex. The interplay among criminal charges, loss of driving privileges, license plate impoundment, and vehicle forfeiture often require an experienced advocate to protect one's interests.
I offer all prospective clients a free, in-depth consultation. If you've been charged with DWI or other offense, you're welcome to call me anytime to discuss whether you need, and can benefit from, a private attorney.
I charge fixed, reasonable fees that vary based on the complexity of the case.
