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.

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.
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.
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!
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 again for taking time to take care of my case. Without your help and support, my case could not have been done so well. I really appreciate all you have done. You have also given Bill and I a second chance. You are a very good lawyer and did a great job! I will always remember you for helping us.
Thank you so much for the incredibly competent legal counsel and personal support. Thank you so much.
Thanks so much for all your help with the whole ordeal.
Thank you for your time, counsel and reassurance yesterday. I respect and admire all that you do.
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
….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.
