About Me

I am a criminal defense lawyer in St. Paul, Minnesota.  While my office is in St. Paul, I represent people across the state of Minnesoa.  I have appeard in a number of counties representing individuals charged with a number of offenses.  I have successfully obtained a dismissal for several clients, including charges of DWI, Domestic Assault, Criminal Defamation, Theft by Swindle, and Criminal Sexual Conduct.   I also recently prevailed at the Court of Appeals and had the Criminal Defamation statute declared unconstitutional.  Feel free to contact me about your situation.  I'd be happy to offer a free consultation.
