    • I recommend James Carlson.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had a run in with the Eagan police over my temporary tags. Mr. Carlson was recommended to me by my boss because his sons had been in trouble. I was looking at a Grand Misdemeanor which would have been a problem in future employment. Jim worked with the prosecutor and got me a continuance which will disappear off my record in a year.

    Jim was highly responsive and aggressively pursued a fair verdict. He is well-connected and liked even by his adversaries. He has common sense and a sense of humor that no doubt helped cut through the rediculuous nature of my case.

    I would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

    • I recommend James Carlson.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I was facing a pretty serious criminal charge when I hired James Carlson. Although I was guilty, James was able to negotiate a plea agreement with lenient terms. Even more important to me, James settled my case quickly and made the process virtually painless for me. Because of James Carlson, I was quickly able to put the nightmare behind me and move on with my life. My family and I are grateful!
