An experienced Minnesota DWI Lawyer should be able to explain to you that yet another hidden cost of a DWI conviction can be the difficulty in getting your license reinstated. Oftentimes after a lengthy suspension period (sometimes up to three years), you can have your license reinstated, but the fees are often cost prohibitive for some individuals.
There are even more potential hidden costs to a Minnesota DWI conviction such as:
- The cost of incarceration/ work release/ electronic home monitoring;
- Treatment (at your cost;)
- Increased cost of health insurance; and
- Being prevented from entering foreign countries (ie., Canada;)
