We have defended hundreds of people just like you who have been charged with DWI, traffic, and other criminal offenses in the State of Minnesota.  If and when you hire our firm, we do everything possible to ensure that the charges against you are dismissed or do not become part of your permanent record, and thereby subject you to jail time, heavy fines, job loss, increased insurance costs, license revocations, vehicle forfeitures, and increased future penalties. 

Our 3 most important tips to find the right criminal defense attorney

1) Hire an attorney who practices exclusively in the area of criminal defense.  Many firms and lawyers who advertise their criminal defense services also practice law in other areas, but this may not be obvious to the consumer.  Many lawyers have parallel websites and print ads offering non-criminal legal services, such as estate planning, immigration, personal injury, etc.   The area of criminal law is highly specific and daily exposure to it will often produce the most skilled and efficient lawyer for your dollar. 
2) Find a lawyer with a mid-range of experience in criminal defense (5-20 years).  The criminal law has changed so much over the past two decades that, in our opinion, it is actually a benefit to have an attorney that was not deeply involved in the practice of criminal law more than 15 or 20 years ago.  
3) Find a lawyer with exceptional research and writing skills.  Not all attorneys relish the thought of research and writing on your behalf.  The truth is that research and writing is very often the most critical ingredient for a successful disposition, such as the dismissal of criminal charges.  While the vast majority of criminal defendants have done something which society could deem morally wrong, guilt is often a product of very precise and sometimes obscure legal precedent that can escape even a competent criminal lawyer.
