Minneapolis BUI / BWI Attorneys

Let Us Defend Your Rights Today

While most of us are already well aware that every state has DUI laws in place that are intended to help keep drivers safe, many people don’t realize that every state, as well as the federal government, has laws that punish those who operate a boat under the influence of drugs or alcohol. BUI / BWI laws permit law enforcement officers to stop boats and other types of watercraft, to determine if the operator and any passengers on board are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A BUI charge can be devastating to your reputation and can put your freedom at stake, especially if you have a previous criminal record. From expensive fines to the possibility of time in jail, facing BUI / BWI charges can be a stressful and overwhelming experience to endure on your own.

Our skilled team of BUI attorneys are here to help you fight the charges against you and restore your reputation and good name. We have the skills and resources you need to build a strong defense strategy and to negotiate with prosecutors.

Call (612) 444-5020 today if you have been accused of boating under the influence.

How Do I Defend Against BUI Charges?

The laws for BUI / BWI are very similar to those for DUI crimes, particularly in the way field sobriety tests are carried out, and how law enforcement attempts to identify potential suspects. If you are accused of BUI /BWI, it is important to remember that there are many different methods a skilled attorney can use in court to cast doubt on the charges against you.

Examples of successful defenses for BUI / BWI charges include:

  • Accusations of defective testing equipment
  • Denying the defendant was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of their arrest

Having skilled representation by your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. Consult with a lawyer immediately if you have been arrested for BUI / BWI.
