Get Protection From A Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney
Juveniles can be charged with any crime, but some of the most common include:
- Underage drunk driving
- Minor in possession
- Drug possession
- Speeding and other traffic violations
- Sex crimes
We have an incredible amount of experience in all of these areas and can handle any crime your child is facing. Our criminal defense attorney will fight to keep the case in the juvenile justice system where the focus is primarily on rehabilitation, not just punishment.
In serious cases, the prosecutor may try to get the case moved to adult court. You do not want your child tried in the adult criminal justice system, which is much more punitive and where prison is an option. Our criminal defense laywers have extensive trial experience in this unique area and will fight hard to obtain the best result possible so the consequences to your child are alleviated or minimized.
Our goal is to protect your child and defend there freedom and rights. We will strive to keep your child out of detention; probation or home arrest is a better option. When possible, however, we will strive to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
If there are underlying issues such as substance abuse, we will assist your family in getting your child the professional help he or she needs.

I just wanted to let you know how much [my son] and I appreciated your professionalism and help with is court case. You were great to work with and are very good at what you do. We could tell that you were respected by the employees/judge at the court and we are so glad we didn’t get that other guy to help us who I had called originally.

You have also given Bill and I a second chance. You are a very good lawyer and did a great job! I will always remember you for helping us.
…. I really needed to thank you for all you did for us. You knew what needed to be done and were always available and helpful with our questions. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to call you again or refer you to a friend. I know we owe it to you to have our son home and not in prison, for him to have the opportunity for a life free of a scarlet letter.
I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me. In the most difficult times of my life, you have been there for me. Thanks for putting me back in the drivers seat!
Just a note to thank you for the wonderful representation provided to my son. I have worked in the Justice System for 30 years and have had the opportunity to watch many well-known defense attorneys in action. None of them compare with the knowledge, grace and dignity that you provided to my son which ultimately has given him a second chance at life. You are truly the Best of the Best!! Thank you never seems enough, but thank you!
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude again for your outstanding efforts to obtain the exceptional outcome on my case. I have known you for years, from my previous career in the legal field. Even though I had not worked for you directly, I was impressed and aware of your talent as an attorney. I have much admiration for your ability and command of the law, the respect you have from other attorneys and prosecutors, and how you reverentially treat and defend your clients with conviction and vigor! I truly appreciate your way of putting my mind at ease and approach of communicating the steps of action, keeping me informed in the process. Your efforts and excellent outcome on my case only confirm what I already knew, that I made the right choice in you for my attorney! I will gladly, and without hesitation, refer anyone who needs legal representation to your services! Thank you again, John.
