DUI and DWI
Minneapolis DWI Attorney Bill Sherry vigorously defends people accused of driving while impaired, DUI offenses and those facing loss of driving privileges or forfeiture in all MN courts. Lawyer offices located in Apple Valley, Dakota County, MN.
Driving While Impaired (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) are just different names for the same thing. Minnesota DWI arrests usually result in two separate court cases. Most people are familiar with the criminal case, but fighting a DWI or DUI charge may also involve completely separate civil cases to challenge the loss of your driving privileges and potential forfeiture of your vehicle. You may also have questions about Minnesota's Ignition Interlock Program. It is important to get legal advice as soon as possible from a skilled attorney who will aggressively defend you and be with you every step of the way.

About DWI offenses in Minnesota
DWI offenses range in severity from a basic Fourth Degree misdemeanor offense to a serious First Degree felony charge. Certain "aggravating factors" may increase the seriousness of the charge, including having a blood alcohol concentration of .16 or more, having a child under age 16 in the vehicle, or having prior DWI convictions or alcohol-related loss of your driver's license. Other factors like fleeing the police can also make matters worse. Additional information on penalties for first DWI offense, second DWI offense, third offense and fourth offense are available at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety web site.

The consequences of a DWI charge are significant, and involve fines, probation conditions and mandatory minimum jail sentences for people with a prior DWI conviction. It is important to hire a lawyer with extensive DWI experience to identify your defenses, or at least conduct damage control. By advising you about things you can do to improve your situation before court and negotiating on your behalf, Apple Valley lawyer Bill Sherry will work to get you the best possible result.

The cost of hiring a lawyer may well be less than the many long-term consequences of pleading guilty to DWI, involving fines, court costs, getting your driver's license reinstated, electronic home monitoring, chemical dependency evaluation and possible treatment, and increased insurance costs. A felony-level DWI conviction also carries the risk of a prison sentence, and results in a lifetime ban on the possession of firearms, a serious consequence for any hunter. A DWI conviction may also jeopardize future employment, housing eligibility, travel to Canada and numerous other things.

Contact Minneapolis DWI attorney Bill Sherry for advice and help in making the best decisions in your unique situation.

Bill Sherry will take the time to listen to your concerns and explain your options to get you through the difficult process with the best possible outcome. He will review the details your case with you, examine all of the evidence, identify any defenses you may have, and thoroughly explain how he can help you and what that will cost.

As an experienced Minnesota criminal defense attorney, Bill Sherry understands that legal problems don't always happen during ordinary office hours. If you are facing DWI/DUI charges and need to talk with a lawyer right now, call or text Bill Sherry at 952-423-8423 for a free consultation.
Sex Crimes
Attorney Bill Sherry vigorously defends people facing criminal sexual conduct charges or sex crimes
Criminal sexual conduct is a term in the law referring to sex crimes that includes:

Rape
Sexual assault
Date rape
Statutory rape
Sexual abuse/child molestation

Most criminal sexual conduct charges are felonies and penalties for a conviction usually involve significant jail time or prison. Most criminal sexual conduct convictions also require predatory offender registration, also known as sex offender registration. A criminal sexual conduct charge or sex offender registration is likely to have a very negative impact on a person's job or where they live, and failure to maintain proper registration is also a serious crime.

Defending criminal sexual conduct charges often includes pretrial work seeking access to medical records, counseling records and other documentation such as police and court records from other incidents that may be relevant to the defense. There are court rules controlling how issues of prior sexual conduct of the alleged victim and evidentiary issues regarding the source of semen, pregnancy and disease may be handled. In cases involving children there are issues to address regarding the competency of witnesses to testify and whether a child's out of court statements to other adults can be admitted into evidence. In some cases, the defense strategy may involve sex offender treatment and other things that help justify being placed on probation rather than being sent to prison.

Facing criminal sexual conduct charges can be frightening and humiliating and it may be difficult or uncomfortable to talk about the details. It is especially important to have a lawyer who understands how devastating these charges can be someone you trust who will be with you every step of the way.

Apple Valley lawyer Bill Sherry has over 28 years' experience handling all types of criminal sexual conduct cases in Dakota County and throughout Minnesota, and will explain all your options and help you navigate the difficult legal process.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

What I do. If you are facing criminal charges, or if you have been injured in an accident, it is important to talk to a lawyer who is experienced in criminal defense and personal injury matters. When you contact me for legal advice, I will listen carefully so that I understand your circumstances and your needs. I will then work directly with you to gather the facts and develop a strategy to resolve your case, so you know what to expect and how we are going to get that result for you. Nobody will work harder on your behalf than me. My continued success depends on it.

The cost. I handle most criminal cases on a flat fee basis. Each case is different, so after reviewing your case and developing a good legal strategy, I will tell you up front what it will cost. If I don't think you need to spend money on a lawyer, I will tell you that, too.

I handle most personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis, which means that I only get paid a share of what I recover for you.

Free consultation. If my approach makes sense to you, please contact me to discuss your case. You will then have all the information you need to make a decision about whether to work with me. The initial consultation is free, so you've got nothing to lose.

Contact me directly: 952-423-8423,
Or email bsherry@sherrylaw.com

If you are still in the decision process or you just want to make sure you always have a good lawyer's number handy when you need it, I encourage you to put me in your contacts now (Bill Sherry, Attorney) and I'll be there when you need me.
