Representing You In Non-Violent Crime Cases
With over 25 years of representing clients in criminal defense cases as a MNBA Certified Specialist in criminal law, I have the experience to inform you of your rights, protect your best interests, and provide you with the advocacy that you need to fight the charges against you. I can assist you with a variety of non-violent crime charges, including DWIs, burglaries and white collar crimes.
Aggressive DWI Representation
In Minnesota, a 1st degree DWI conviction is considered a felony and is the most serious classification, but even a 2nd, 3rd,or 4th degree DWI can come with hefty consequences beyond a criminal conviction. A DWI conviction can trigger a revocation of your driver’s license along with more serious sanctions for individuals with multiple convictions. Considering the financial penalties and potential jail time, a DWI conviction can present a challenge that can be hard to overcome.
Even after a conviction, I will consider your options and move forward to improve your situation. I have won some successful appeals in DWI cases and will apply my attention on your case.
Defending You Against Burglary Charges
Burglary refers to the crime of breaking or entering a building illegally with the intent to commit a crime, usually theft. The penalties for burglary are largely dependent on the facts of the case, taking into consideration the scope of the criminal act, the nature of the structure that was broken into, and any weapons that the burglar had in their possession or used. Under Minnesota law, burglary can be punished severely, depending on the extent of the crime.
A conviction for burglary can greatly impact your life, restricting your professional and personal opportunities. Having a qualified lawyer experienced in burglary cases is essential for building a compelling case against the charges and reducing the consequences of the offense.
Comprehensive White Collar Crime Criminal Defense
Minnesota has a renewed focus on prosecuting white collar crimes. White collar crimes are typically financially motivated criminal offenses that encompass a wide range of fraud and abuses of power including:
- Insider trading
- Ponzi schemes
- Identify theft and other cybercrimes
Being accused of a white collar crime can have devastating impacts on your life, even if you are not convicted. Depending on the severity of the charge, you can face prison time and thousands of dollars’ worth of fines.
