If you have been charged with any form of assault you need an attorney that will fight to protect your future.

Theft

Theft crimes can carry severe penalties and are typically relevant to the value of the property that is stolen. There are many crimes that can be categorized as theft:

DWI / DUI

DWI representation by Kraft Walser Law Office, Minnesota.

DWI & DUI charges can have very serious consequences for you. Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of other substances is a very serious charge. You may be facing a misdemeanor or a serious felony depending upon your situation. It is critical for you to hire qualified attorneys to help you resolve your situation with the best possible outcome.

When arrested and charged with a DWI or DUI you are facing the possibility of large fines, loss of your drivers license and possibly even jail time. When representing you our responsibility is to get the best result possible. In many past cases we have been able to have charges reduced or dismissed all together.

The attorneys of The Kraft Walser Law Office have the knowledge and experience to provide you with an aggressive and effective defense.

What is the difference between a DWI & DUI? Both terms are used to reference operating a motor vehicle while you are impaired by alcohol or drugs. In some states, the laws relating to drunk driving are different for a DUI verses a DWI.

Minnesota law provides that a DUI may or may not include a specific alcohol level. All that is required is that the prosecutor show that you were impaired. With a DWI intoxication is usually defined as a prohibited alcohol level. In Minnesota that is .08 for a regular drivers license or .04 for a commercial drivers license.

Also, in Minnesota, a law enforcement officer may arrest you with a lower blood alcohol level if they can show that you committed driving errors due to impairment.

In either event people often use the terms interchangeably. Understanding the difference is just one reason you will want to hire an attorney from The Kraft Walser Law Office.

Felonies & Misdemeanors

When you are accused of committing a crime, it will be classified as either a felony or misdemeanor.

  • A misdemeanor carries smaller penalties than a felony, as well as fewer long term effects. Even so, do not make the mistake of taking misdemeanor charges lightly.
  • A felony carries larger penalties and is far reaching in how it will effect your future. These crimes may punished by prison time, heavy fines and possibly even the death penalty (depending upon the state the crime is committed in.)

Expungement

If you are convicted of a crime, it is possible for you to have the records sealed. This allows you to protect your reputation and employment options. This allows only law enforcement to view your sealed records, and then only in limited situations. The first step is to determine if you qualify for expungement, the attorneys of Kraft Walser Law Office can help you determine your eligibility. In the event you are eligible, we can then help you navigate the process.

If you have been arrested let us fight to protect your future. Call Kraft Walser Law Office and let us get started working for you.
