Minnesota Criminal Lawyers

With over 40 years of combined experience we have handled 1000’s of criminal cases including, DWI/DUI, Criminal Vehicular Operation/Homicide, Drug Offenses, Sex Crimes, Prostitution/Solicitation, Theft, Assault, Domestic Violence, White Collar Crimes and all other Felony, Gross misdemeanor and Misdemeanor offenses. We understand that your reputation as well as your freedom is at stake when it comes to handling a criminal arrest.  Not only do you risk a criminal conviction and the consequences associated with a conviction, but you also have to face the negative consequences a conviction may have on your life even after you have served your punishment. Any criminal conviction, from a felony offense to a misdemeanor charge, can negatively impact your ability to find decent employment and move on with your life. Furthermore, some felony offenses can also result in a loss of certain rights including your right to drive, your right to vote, your right to travel overseas and your right to own firearms.
