Minnesota DWI Defense Lawyers

The Twin Cities is a large metropolis, with four law schools churning out more lawyers every year. You won't have trouble finding a criminal defense attorney willing to take your case and your money.

Do not play "spin the wheel" when selecting a DWI or criminal defense attorney. On the surface, all "lawyering" looks the same. Look deeper and you will find that it is not.

Attorneys vary widely in experience and in the effort they put into fighting for their clients. Some criminal defense attorneys routinely plea bargain at the first opportunity, leaving their clients to serve time, pay fines and pay their lawyer for the privilege. Others fight tooth and nail for their clients' rights, only to lose in the end, oblivious to other tactics and strategies used only by the best.

The drunk driving and criminal defense law firm of Charles A. Ramsay & Associates, PLLC combines 13 years of experience with a sleeves-rolled-up, tenacious drive to beat your charges and watch you walk free.

We are prepared to defend you. Ask yourself — is "the other guy":

  • As qualified as the state's expert, as a certified Intoxilyzer 5000 operator and graduate of the Borkenstein School?
  • The one who teaches other lawyers as a frequent provider of continuing legal education for other criminal defense lawyers at the state and national level?
  • A member of the exclusive Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice, whose membership is limited to 50 of Minnesota's top criminal defense attorneys?
  • Experienced, having defended thousands of people?
  • Backed by success of over a dozen appellate cases, many of which have changed Minnesota law?

We don't fold up our books and head home once you leave our office. We don't gather our things and give up at court hearings if we encounter a roadblock. Example: Current cases hinge on the evidence provided by a breath test. Are the test results accurate? Maybe not, because, until the state of Minnesota allows attorneys to examine the Intoxilyzer 5000's computer source code, the machine's accuracy cannot be verified. We are actively seeking access to the code in an effort to have the evidence against our clients ruled invalid and to free him of his charges.

Charles Ramsay won another district court case in Aitkin County by convincing the judge that the state had insufficient evidence to win at trial. In State v. Alden, Ramsay used his years of experience to successfully argue at a pre-trial motion hearing that the state could not prove his client was guilty of driving while intoxicated.

The State had argued that it was obvious Ramsay's client had been driving; the alleged driver was found standing next to his vehicle in a deep ravine, it was a cold winter night, and no other tracks were found in the freshly fallen snow.

Despite these facts, Ramsay successfully argued that the police on the scene didn't sufficiently establish whether Ramsay's client had actually driven the vehicle, or establish when any accident may have occurred.

The court, in dismissing the charges against Ramsay's client, concluded that, "In the absence of showing Defendant was the driver or in control of the vehicle, the fact that [the officer] had probable cause to believe Defendant had been drinking is without consequence."

Once again, Ramsay has proven that the best way to represent any client demands both a firm grasp of the law, an eye for important facts, and a desire to zealously defend his clients with every tool at his disposal.

Charles Ramsay has won another appellate court case. In State v. Sickmann, Ramsay convinced the three-member panel of the Minnesota Court of Appeals that his client was denied his constitutional right to confront his accusers.

At trial, the state sought to admit Ramsay's client's blood test without calling to testify the person who withdrew the blood. Ramsay objected citing his client's right of confrontation, and on other grounds. The Sherburne County District Court Judge overruled Ramsay, and admitted the blood alcohol evidence in trial. With the admission of the blood alcohol evidence, the state then used a scientifically dubious practice called retrograde extrapolation to speculate as to the level of alcohol in his client's blood at an earlier time. Although the scientific community recognizes this practice when certain variables are known, the judge permitted the speculation even though the state was unaware of such critical evidence as when the driver had his last drink, the amount of food he consumed, when he became "post absorptive," or how quickly he burned off alcohol.

Ramsay praised the appellate court for its ruling. "The court recognized that the state cannot take short cuts at trial. Prosecutors will no longer be able to 'phone it in' when a person's liberty is at stake."

The court reversed the decision and granted Ramsay's client a new trial. Ramsay expects the trial to commence sometime in 2007.
