Deciding whether to take a breath test for DWI/DUI is an incredibly important decision that will have immediate and lasting consequences.

If your loved one has been arrested:
If your husband, wife, son, daughter, brother, sister, or friend just called to tell you he or she was arrested for DWI/DUI, please call us now at 952-835-1088. We answer the phone 24/7 to help the families and friends of Minnesota drivers who are arrested for DWI/DUI. We will help you to understand the process your family member or friend is going through, answer all of your questions, and make contact with your family member or friend to help them through this terrible situation. Olson Defense is available any time of day to make sure that your loved one has the advice of an experienced lawyer.
If your loved one was sent to jail after a DWI/DUI arrest:
If your family member or friend called to tell you he or she is in jail after being arrested for DWI/DUI, please call us now at 952-835-1088. Because of Minnesota's 36-hour hold rule, a person who is arrested late on Friday night and booked into jail early on Saturday morning can be stuck in jail until the following Tuesday, unless they have a lawyer fighting to get them out. This long time in jail can cause issues with employment, child care, school, and other appointments, and it can be a very difficult time for someone who has never been to jail before. However, the lawyers at Olson Defense have experience working with prosecutors and judges to have bail set before a court appearance so that our clients can be released early, sometimes only hours after their arrest.
Whether it is you, a family member, or a friend under arrest, now is the time to seek the experience and professional guidance of the attorneys at Olson Defense. We will help you to understand the situation and your options, help to minimize the immediate consequences, and get you out of jail as quickly as possible. If you, a family member, or a friend has been arrested for or charged with DUI/DWI, please call Olson Defense at 952-835-1088 to discuss how our lawyers can fight your case.
