Always there to answer my many questions by phone and email, I have had several private attorneys for past DWI's and John was by far the most helpful and comforting I've had throughout my case. I received 17 days in Jail and probation for my 3rd gross misdemeanor DWI, Thanks to Johns incredible knowledge of the legal system my sentence was months less than i was expecting. Thanks again John!

John is very competent and got a dui charge dropped to careless driving. I felt I should have been vindicated in a trial as the OTC ranitidine (aka Zantac) I was taking while having alcohol has been shown to raise BAC to increase by up to 38%. In addition I have lane departure warnings and the trooper said I was swerving but indicators never went off and i had a witness in car to substantiate. Anyway, he didn't recommend going to trial, and I agreed to plead guilty to the lesser charge of careless driving. In addition to his legal fee of $2500, I paid for occupational driving privilege ($680) plus CD assessment ($200), MADD class ($50) and then fine for careless ($380). I still strongly feel this was a medication issue, but it took more than 6 mos to get a pretrial - very slow - can't imagine dragging it out for a jury trial! Now I never take that med, if I'm going to have alcohol, and carry a $39 portable breathylzer when if driving self and having a couple drinks. Friends have used it and stayed put til under limit. Live and learn - albeit a $4K lesson.

John was great to work, calm, attentive, listened well, new his stuff! He helped me on an (silly) domestic assault charge. Results were very favorable, I have worked with several attorneys he and one other are the only 2 I would ever refer!

I was represented by Mr. Arechigo through a recommendation of a friend who went through the same process. He gave me all of the correct information to make my case go as easily as possible, lessen the fines and possibly penalties. I would strongly recommend him for the same legal case based on his knowledge, professionalism and quick communication practices. Some lawyers take days to get back to you on questions, not John. He is on top of all of your questions, letting you know immediately what you should or shouldn't do.

John Arechigo is most likely the best criminal defense lawyer that Minnesota has to offer. I absolutely fully endorse his legal counsel. I was impressed by his professionalism and how he handled my case. Thank you for everything!

Was a great help in a difficult situation. Very professional, bright, thorough in all respects. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Arechigo again should the need arise.

Very happy with John Arechigo and his firm. They were very professional and knowledgeable without being too impersonal. He was timely, organized, and answered every question and concern we had regarding our case with confidence. Very happy with our representation... I recommend him to friends and family with 100% satisfaction!

John Arechigo defended me in a criminal case in Blue Earth County in 2012-2013.
I cannot recommend him highly enough to any individual charged with a criminal matter within the State of Minnesota.
I was arrested for Criminal Defamation at 12:00 Midnight on a Sunday night; after being awaken, very rudely I might add, by two Saint Paul Police Officers, and transported off to jail.
Attorney Arechigo arranged for my bail, and made several trips to Mankato to defend me.
He was extremely successful having all the charges eventually dismissed (even after I opened my big mouth in open court) and having my “criminal record” expunged.
His knowledge of the Law is very great indeed, and is attention to detail is extremely good.
Again, I cannot recommend highly enough to any individual.
