Criminal Defense

Being charged with committing a crime is a scary and stressful experience, not only for the accused, but also for the person’s family and friends. Criminal defense lawyers, especially very good ones, not only represent clients in court but also try to reduce that fear and stress as much as possible. Knowing that our criminal defense clients and their families are often scared and unfamiliar with the criminal justice system, our first meetings with a client are usually designed to gather information about the client and the case. We do this because we want to treat you not  just as another client,  but as a person we want to build a relationship with. We are dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized representation based on your unique concerns. We’ll take the time to explain the criminal justice system, answer your questions, and provide you with up-front, honest, and realistic advice.

After we get to know you and what your case is about, we work tirelessly to move you and your case  forward in the best way possible. Sometimes that means negotiating with the prosecutor to reach a plea agreement. Sometimes that means preparing and litigating motions to suppress or motions to dismiss, and sometimes that means zealously representing a client at trial or on appeal. Our lawyers are innovative. We’re not satisfied with cookie-cutter justice; we look for creative solutions that fit the facts of the case and the client.

Our lawyers provide a wide range of representation in federal, state, and municipal courts in North Dakota and Minnesota.
