DWI/DUI And Commercial Driver's Licenses

There is a social stigma attached to DWI. An arrest and conviction can happen to people from all walks of life. Being charged with this offense doesn't make you a terrible person — it simply means you need legal help. This is especially true if you are a commercial driver.

Your Career May Be At Stake, So Get A Lawyer On Your Side

Being convicted of driving while impaired can result in the disqualification of your commercial driver's license (CDL) for one year for a first offense. A second conviction can mean the loss of your CDL for life.

At Bauer Law Office, we understand that your entire career may be at stake. Our mission is to do everything possible to prevent the loss of your CDL and protect your future. I am Thomas Bauer, the founder and owner of this law firm. With more than 40 years of experience as a DWI defense lawyer in Minnesota, I know the laws and the legal system inside and out. I stay up-to-date on changes in the law and court cases that may be relevant to my clients' cases. With extensive knowledge as a base, you can count on me to present an aggressive and intelligent defense based on the particular facts of your case.

Minnesota Takes These Drunk Driving Violations Very Seriously

Accidents involving commercial trucks are typically catastrophic, resulting in very severe injuries or fatalities. That's why the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for commercial drivers is only .04 instead of .08.

Did you know? Even if you are driving your own personal vehicle when you are pulled over, not your commercial truck, you are still in danger of losing your CDL.

Every case is unique. You must have an attorney review the facts so that you know what defenses and options you have. Even if you are guilty, as your lawyer, I won't give up — I will look diligently for all possible ways to reduce the penalties you face. If I determine that law enforcement violated any of your rights, I may be able to use evidence of this violation to get the DWI charge dismissed.
