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.

Thank you so much for everything! I appreciate the time you took before I was an actual client as well as during the process. You’re obviously good at what you do and I’m thankful for the outcome! Thanks again!
I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic representation and support you gave me during my case. The resolution was way better than I could have ever hoped for. You got the court to see me as a person, not a charge, and that was crucial. Thanks again for everything. I really appreciate it!
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!
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.
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.
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 don’t know how to go about thanking you for helping me through the toughest time of my life. I never thought someone like me would have to face allegations like these. This was terrible. Me and my daughter would love for you to know how much we appreciate all that you do. I wish there were more people like you. Thank you and your staff for all you have done to help (I will never forget this). You’ve won our hearts.
Thank you very much for your legal representation and answering all my questions. I will definitely recommend your legal services to others in need. Again, cannot thank you enough for your advice/help in my case.
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 Mr. John Leunig for representing me! I wanted to scream very loudly at the court house but I could not because I was afraid that I may talk in my African language. It felt SUPER DUPER GOOD!!!! but also felt like I was in a very good dream that I did not want to wake up from. The sentence has not sunk in yet. What? Are you serious! That’s it! You are the best Lawyer not only in the continental USA but in all the five continents in the world and I am thankful for choosing you out of the load of names I had. I cannot find better vocabulary in any language to describe what you do and how great you are at it!…But I say Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
