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.

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 just wanted to thank you for your help with my recent case. It was nice to have someone on my side. Thank you for helping me get a favorable outcome in my case.
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.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to you John! You made a very stressful situation sooo much easier for me and I will never forget your kindness and generosity. I give you all the credit for saving my sanity throughout this nightmare. I will keep my promise and send all of my “troubled” friends your way too – you are without a doubt a very talented attorney. Thank you – Thank you – Thank you!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for representing me…. You did an outstanding job with my case and you put some faith in my heart that not all attorney’s are just out for the “mighty buck”. I really felt like you invested more than just a “legal strategy” in my case. It meant the world to me!
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.
I just wanted to communicate my thanks for the professional legal representation provided by you and your firm… Please know that I really appreciate the way you guided me through the somewhat foreign processes of our justice system. John, you really are an excellent attorney. You gave me confidence with a dose of reality all at the same time. Your experience, pragmatism, and charisma really made me feel good to have your representation.
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for assisting me in my “dilemma”. Amber also wanted to say she appreciated what you did very much. If I ever find myself in need for an attorney or know of anyone in need – you are the one. Thanks again.
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.
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!
