Experienced South Dakota DWI/DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for drunk driving while traveling through Western South Dakota, you need an experienced DWI/DUI defense attorney to protect your constitutional rights. If you have suffered a serious personal injury while in South Dakota on vacation or business, you want a knowledgeable lawyer to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries.

At the Christensen Law Offices, we understand the stress and anxiety that being arrested can create, or that divorce/custody issues can cause. We also understand the stress resulting from an injury when you are vacationing far from home. We have represented individuals and families throughout Western South Dakota, the Black Hills, and throughout the country for over 30 years.

Criminal Defense We represent out-of-state visitors in a variety of criminal matters, from assault or theft crimes to drug offenses and DWI/DUI defense. We aggressively challenge every arrest, evaluating issues of probable cause, search and seizure, and other aspects of criminal procedure. We carefully examine evidence and challenge drunk driving charges when breath tests are inaccurate or improperly administered. We have handled many appeals to the South Dakota Supreme Court or the federal circuit courts when necessary to protect your rights.

Personal Injury We work closely with men and women who have been injured while visiting South Dakota to attend the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, as well as individuals who travel to the area to enjoy the local casinos and other Black Hills attractions. We handle most types of personal injury claims, including injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents.

When you are visiting another state on vacation or business and you get arrested or suffer a serious personal injury, you can often feel afraid, alone and overwhelmed. We understand the feeling. At the Christensen Law Offices, we work extensively with nonresidents to ease anxiety and provide the assurance that your interests are being protected. We help you make good decisions based on knowledge and understanding, not on fear.
