We have the Experience You Need
We recommend that your Minnesota criminal defense lawyer have roughly 10 to 20 years of experience practicing criminal law in the State of Minnesota. This is because state law has changed so much from 15 or 20 years ago. Thus, having a lawyer deeply involved in the practice of criminal law over this particular time frame will be of most benefit to today’s client.
We relish the thought of Research and Writing on Your behalf
There can be no doubt that the most successful ingredient in winning criminal cases is spotting issues, and research and writing those issues. Rather than save these efforts for the rare client, we believe that every case has issues that require legal research. Our skills and enthusiasm in this area are unsurpassed. In fact, many very experienced Minnesota criminal lawyers often consult our firm with regard to legal issues in their clients’ cases. This surfaced once again in late 2017 when Mr. Tschida discovered legal errors with respect to the Minnesota Implied Consent Advisory.
We take only a Limited number of Cases, and will turn away a Prospective Client if we are too Busy
Perhaps the number one disappointment criminal defendants have is that their lawyer was not attentive to their case. A prime example of this was the statewide source-code (Intoxilyzer) litigation. When that litigation ended in defeat, we had no pressure to resolve dozens upon dozens of cases at the same time, which was not at all conducive to successful outcomes for many of these defendants. In fact, most of our source-code clients later won their DWI cases on other grounds because of our Client-based decision to take on a limited number of those cases.
We practice Exclusively in the area of Criminal and DWI law
Many firms that practice criminal or DWI defense also offer other legal services, such as personal injury, estate planning, family law, or otherwise. Many have parallel websites offering these services that may not be obvious to the consumer. While there is nothing wrong with being a general practice lawyer, the area of criminal law is highly specialized. Your lawyer should have daily exposure to the field of criminal law.
