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.

Where could I begin to say thank you for all you have done for Kevin and I. You have held our hands and calmed us down through the most difficult moments in this case. You’ve always remained positive, supportive and optimistic. We had a great outcome and couldn’t have agreed more with you on all your decisions. Thank you for always answering all of our questions and being patient while I was frustrated. I don’t know what we would have done without you both. You guys are AWESOME! We will forever have you in our hearts and lives. Because of you I have been given a second chance in life!!! Thank you for everything.
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
Thank you so much for all your help. …It meant so much to me at such a time in my life! You made things so much easier for me and made me feel a lot better with my situation.
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.
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.
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 so much for your time and effort on my behalf! Knowing you are in my corner gives me as much peace as I wish for you and yours!
I so appreciate your entire team’s efforts in my case. Your hard work, diligence and heads-up play really made all the difference in the outcome. I will forever be indebted.
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.
