Challenging the Legality of the Stop

Defending Your Rights and Freedom

In order to obtain a DWI conviction, the state must prove every element of its case beyond a doubt. But often, the weakest part of the state's case is the police stop. If the legality of the stop can be successfully challenged, it may be possible to get the charge dismissed or reduced to a non-alcohol driving offense.

At the law firm of Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., we aggressively defend people charged with DWI and DUI drug offenses. Attorney Jeff Sheridan has nearly 30 years of criminal defense experience, and he will use his knowledge and advocacy skills to defend your rights and freedom.

DWI Defense in Minnesota

In the United States, the police must have "reasonable articulable suspicion" that a law has been broken in order to make a traffic stop.

If the officer cannot provide evidence obtained from observable facts or behavior that led him or her to believe that the driver was committing a crime, everything the officer learned after the stop, including the results of the field sobriety tests and breath or urine tests, can be suppressed. Without that evidence, the state's case will likely collapse.

In your case, Jeff Sheridan will carefully examine the circumstances of the police stop and subsequent investigation. If he finds that there was no lawful basis for the stop, Mr. Sheridan will seek to have the DWI or DUI drug charge dismissed.

At Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., we understand the stakes in your case. We will work tirelessly to obtain a positive outcome for you.
