Experienced South Dakota DWI/DUI Defense Lawyer

When you have been charged with driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence, you have a lot of concerns about your future. The level of the offense will have a significant impact on the consequences. You may be assessed a substantial fine. Your insurance premiums can be significantly increased. You could lose your driver's license or even your job. You need an experienced DWI/DUI defense attorney to protect your interests.

At the Christensen Law Offices in Deadwood, we understand the stress and anxiety that an arrest for drunk driving can bring. We have represented individuals throughout Western South Dakota, the Black Hills and throughout the country for over 30 years.

In our DWI/DUI defense practice, we aggressively protect the interests of clients charged with drunk driving or driving under the influence. We work to minimize the consequences of a drunk driving charge by challenging every aspect of the arrest. Did the arresting officer have probable cause to make the stop? Were field sobriety tests properly administered? Was the breath test (Breathalyzer) done correctly? We have successfully challenged DWI/DUI arrests on numerous occasions.

We have worked extensively with nonresidents who have been charged with DWI/DUI while attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or vacationing in Western South Dakota. We also handle personal injury claims for out-of-state visitors to the area.

When you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated, the potential consequences can cause fear and frustration. We understand the feeling. At the Christensen Law Offices, our DWI/DUI defense representation is designed to ease your anxiety and provide a safe place where you know your interests are being protected. We work with you to help you make good decisions based on knowledge and understanding, not on fear.
