FT Sessoms

Minnesota DWI Attorney & DUI Lawyer

Talk to F.T. Sessoms, recognized by his peers as one of Minnesota's best criminal defense attorneys.

If you've been arrested for DWI in Minnesota, turn to a lawyer who can protect your rights and make sure you get the best results from your defense. You are facing the immediate loss of your license, a criminal record, a jail term and thousands of dollars in increased insurance costs. But these cases can be won.

As an attorney dedicated to DWI and criminal defense, I have successfully defended drunk driving arrests in Minnesota by challenging, among other things, the grounds of the initial stop; whether the police had probable cause; whether the police made a mistake of law; whether the individual was properly advised of his rights; the accuracy of the alcohol concentration test results; whether the state timely provided the "source code" (aka the system software) for the intoxilyzer 5000; whether the police attempted to obtain a warrant prior to testing; and whether the right to additional testing was hindered or denied by the police.  I invite you to click on my clients' "Google Reviews" and examine my "Legally Significant Victories" as I believe you will agree that I have had a remarkable impact on DWI defense in the State of Minnesota.

It seems like every year, the State of Minnesota imposes greater penalties upon those arrested for DWI and DUI. These penalties are imposed upon arrest and for a summary of the latest harsh changes imposed by your legislature, click here for  "Minnesota DWI License Revocation Penalties".  

I am very experienced in challenging your DWI arrest and the accompanying draconian license revocation penalties.  I provide a thorough and systematic analysis of every case and will exploit any weakness to defend the people I represent. I am available to discuss your case, seven days a week. Call me today and we'll take an immediate look at your case!
