  • Norman Scott Stewart

    I have been familiar with the legal skills of David Valentini since very early in me legal career over 25 years ago. His criminal defense work, and especially his work on behalf of DUI / DWI clients is unparalleled. Twenty five years after first watching him at work I have now personally tried over 300 jury trials myself, and I continue to use tools and tactics that I learned from Mr. Valentini. Without reservation I give him my highest endorsement.

  • Benjamin Harold Pardun

    David is a valuable asset to the criminal defense community in Minnesota. He was my personal mentor throughout law school and was the reason I pursued my career in criminal defense / DWI. I fully endorse David and encourage anyone facing a criminal charge to contact him.
