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 just wanted to write to put an end to our story and to thank you for being our guardians! Really—- we honestly would not have survived without you!!!! Your compassion, knowledge and providing us round the clock access cannot be measured in a simple Thank You. We are grateful beyond words. You saved my son’s life. How do you completely thank someone for that??? Our gratitude is immeasurable. From our hearts — Thank you.
I can’t thank you enough for all you did to give me such a favorable outcome to my legal challenges. You are a miracle worker! You are appreciated by my family and friends and me (of course) for all you did.
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!
Thank you for all the hard work you put into [my grandson’s] case. It cost a lot of money but saving [my grandson’s] reputation and future is far more important. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the same situation.
We give thanks to God for having placed such a great person in our path. Thank you for offering us your support up until the last moment. God Bless you now and always John J. Leunig
THANK YOU for your outstanding representation, support and assistance in my case.
I would like to thank you for everything you did for [my son]. I could never find a way to show you how much you did for him. I will always feel like I am in your debt. You made it so [my son] can have a normal life. Thank you.
There are really no words to express our gratitude and thanks. You have done your job well and are to be commended for your efforts. You have treated us with dignity and respect – precious commodities that are close to the soul. You treated us as more than like a client – you treated us as a friend. Thanks for caring and your support. You’re one in a million!
I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your support and friendship through one of the toughest ordeals in my life. There is not a moment that goes by in the last week that I don’t think about how great you did at the jury trial… I will recommend your great service to everyone I come in contact with that may need you! My kids thank you too.
It takes a good lawyer and supportive family – and even the worst situation can have a positive result! His life would have been very different had he not had you for his lawyer, I doubt that he would have accomplished many of the milestones he made since that time…
