Boating While Intoxicated (BWI)

If you are arrested for boating while intoxicated (BWI), more than just your right to drive a boat is at stake. You could also lose your driver's license after a BWI arrest. Depending on the severity of the offense and your previous record, you could also face jail time and heavy fines.

BWI Has Similar Penalties to DWI

BWI is similar to drunk driving, and it is also treated similarly under the law. In Minnesota, for example, both a first-time BWI and a first-time DWI conviction can result in up to $1,000 in fines and 90 days of jail time. Additionally, with both DWI and BWI, the penalties increase with every conviction.

Whether this is your first drunk boating offense or your third, we will vigorously defend you from the charges you are facing. Attorney Jeff Sheridan has built a reputation for providing quality defense against all types of DWI charges. In fact, he has been named to the list of "Best Lawyers in America" every year since 2007. He has also been listed in Super Lawyers in Minnesota Law & Politics and has been named Attorney of the Year by Minnesota Lawyer three times.
