Law Enforcement Takes Domestic Violence/Domestic Assault Seriously
We will carefully investigate the case against you, review the discovery, interview witnesses and examine the alleged crime scene when necessary. We will also determine whether factors such as self-defense are involved and we will challenge the admissibility of the state’s evidence when that is warranted. You can rely on us to be thoroughly prepared and ready to execute skillfully in the courtroom. Call the Law Office of John J. Leunig today for strategic, aggressive representation.
Domestic Abuse And Restraining Order Violations
In Minnesota, domestic violence can be committed between people in the same household, parents and children, current and former spouses, blood relatives, people who share a child and people in a romantic relationship. You do not have to live with someone for it to be considered domestic violence/domestic assault.
The issuance of an order for protection (restraining order) is common in a domestic assault case. We can represent you if one has been taken out against you. Usually, orders for protection start out as temporary, but can be enforced for up to two years and sometimes longer. While an order for protection is in place, your right to possess firearms will be affected and other conditions can be placed on you as well. We will represent you in court on these matters and vigorously protect your rights.
You should not violate an order for protection. You can be charged with a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony, depending on the specifics of the offense. These charges will be separate from the domestic violence charges, with penalties of their own. If you violate an order for protection, you will likely go to jail until a hearing can be arranged. If you are charged with domestic assault, violation of an order for protection or any other charge, contact The Law Office of John J. Leunig to set up a meeting to discuss your case and start preparing your defense.

Just a note John to thank you again for your work and your great presentation in court. I liked you the first time we met back in July and I think you’re great. I can feel in my heart that you like to help people as you helped me. Thanks again John and Bless 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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you both for all your help in getting Mary and I through a very difficult time. You made a very stressful event more comfortable so thank you for your counsel and guidance. I look forward to making wiser decisions.
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.
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.
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!
Thanks so much for all your help with the whole ordeal.
