Aggressive Felony Defense From A Trial-Tested DWI Attorney
Being arrested with one DWI is bad enough, but getting multiple drunk driving offenses can affect the most important things in life: your employment, finances, reputation and freedom.
In Minnesota, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. A first-time DWI offense is typically a misdemeanor. But a fourth offense is considered a felony, punishable by imprisonment. This is a very serious conviction to have on your record. If you have been arrested several times for driving under the influence (DUI)/driving while intoxicated (DWI), you could suffer grave penalties, including prison time, and your driver’s license may be permanently suspended.
At the Law Offices of Mitchell A. Robinson, P.A., in Minneapolis, we have almost 30 years of comprehensive experience defending DWI clients with serious felony charges. Attorney Robinson and the rest of our legal team will be supportive until your case is resolved.
Circumstances For Being Charged With A Felony DWI/DUI:
- It is the fourth time being arrested. You’ve violated the Minnesota DWI law within 10 years of the first of three or more prior impaired driving incidents.
- Previous conviction of a felony DWI.
Penalties For A Felony DWI Conviction

This device measures blood alcohol content by blowing into the device before starting the car. We’ve been successful in securing IID installations and the freedom of driving for many past clients.
