Assault Is A Violent Crime
Our founding attorney is certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association as a Criminal Law Specialist and has handled countless assault cases during his 27-year career. Through his insight, we know how to build a strong defense and fight back against these charges. You can rely on us to thoroughly investigate your case and build the strongest defense possible. When we represent you, we look for mitigating factors such as self-defense and seek to have inadmissible evidence suppressed at trial. We will present the most compelling arguments possible in your defense and vigorously execute them at trial with the sole purpose of obtaining an acquittal. In cases that don’t go to trial, we negotiate aggressively to obtain the fairest and most favorable resolution that can be achieved.

….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
Hope I will never have to go through this again. I thank John for all his help. If we ever need an excellent lawyer-we know where to find him. God Bless!!!
Thank you for all you have done for me this past year! I know you’ve “got my back” and I would like you to know how much I appreciate you going above and beyond as my attorney and friend. You are THE BEST and I let people know.
Thank you very much for your excellent job in representing me in court for my case. Thank you especially for keeping me out of jail as that was the primary reason for hiring you. My friends have commented. “You got off easy” and I reply, “I give credit to my attorney John Leunig, I found him in the St. Paul Yellow Pages under Attorneys.” Thank you again.
Thank you for your time, counsel and reassurance yesterday. I respect and admire all that you do.
I can’t thank you enough for all of the guidance and support you’ve given me these past few months. I feel very fortunate to have worked with you during this somewhat unpleasant experience.
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for assisting me in my “dilemma”. Amber also wanted to say she appreciated what you did very much. If I ever find myself in need for an attorney or know of anyone in need – you are the one. Thanks again.
This letter is to thank you for representation that was above and beyond what we expected to receive. You are a clever, extremely professional, comforting individual and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that you care about the outcome as much as we did. Your style of representation was impeccable, classy, and cleverly executed throughout every facet of the case. We were proud to have you as our lawyer. We felt comforted by your portrayal of experience and knowledge. You were protective, well-prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see the others had respect for you and what you had to say. John did everything he promised and more. He comforted us when we were worried, and fought hard for us. He was our friend. I would recommend anyone to John. John is truly a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation. Sincerely yours.
Thanks again for your help in getting my son’s case dismissed. Hopefully everyone learns from this unfortunate incident. Your advice and connections were very important at a stressful time.
