Did you know that when you are arrested for a DWI, you have a right to call an attorney before you decide to take a Breath Test, a Blood Test or a Urine Test under the Implied Consent Law, according to the Minnesota Supreme Court in Friedman v. Commissioner of Public Safety ? Not only that, but you also have the right to call a non-attorney to get the name or phone number of an attorney, OR to have your friend or family member try to get a hold of an attorney for you. The Police, unfortunately, often violate DWI arrestees pre-test right to counsel by NOT allowing a person charged with dWI to call a non-attorney for the purpose of getting the name or number of an attorney
Under the Minnesota Court of Appeals cases of Clough v. Commissioner of Public Safety and State v. Karau, a DWI arrestee has a right to call a non-attorney friend or family member to get the name or number of an aggressive, experienced DWI attorney. Attorney Max Keller of Keller Criminal Defense Attorneys has won DWI cases before based on the violation of the pre-test right to counsel, and based on many other issues too.
