Aggressive Advocacy

Protecting your rights doesn't begin and end with criminal charges. Minnesota Legal Defense takes a wholistic approach to client representation, which means defending your rights in civil or family court as well. Oftentimes, the same allegations that the State of Minnesota uses to create criminal charges can be used as the basis for a civil lawsuit. There are times the allegations are made to affect a family law case, like custody or parenting time. Other times, the allegations themselves are pure harassment and the accuser needs to be restrained by a harassment order. Don't wait for charges to be filed against you. If you believe you're being accused of something or believe that you may be a suspect in a case, you need legal representation.

Areas of Advocacy

Pre-Charging Representation

A proactive and assertive defense is critical if you face serious charges. Strong legal representation before you're even charged can lead to charges never being filed or reduced charges. The sooner the police and the prosecutors know you're represented by Minnesota Legal Defense, the better the outcome for you.
