we recommend Leone
It was a blessing to work with Leone. Indeed, knowledgeable and always made us feel important. Leone was always available when we needed him, and his staff showed us compassion and respect throughout my daughter's case. No one wants to need a defense attorney in their life, but if such a need arises, we recommend Leone.

Really a big help!
I needed help with some legal issues. Andrew was recommended to me by a friend, and I hired him to represent me. He did what he promised and got me cleared of the offense. If you need help call him.

Mr Leone is fantastic.
I was falsely accused of a Major 11 Felony. My first attorney told me that my case was hopeless and I should just accept my terrible path. I almost lost hope not until I met Mr Leone- all he did is to work on process and have progress. During my trial, he made sure I was heard, allowed me to share the truth, held the police accountable for their lies with direct evidence, and EVERYTHING he knew that would help me. Because of him, I received a NOT GUILTY verdict. You know how grateful I am to you, Mr Leone!! I would recommend him to anyone. He's an attorney you can trust to care and fight for you.

Thank God I found this firm!
Attorney Andrew and his team helped me get my life back. I know, it is hard to find an attorney you can trust. However, I can freely say that Attorney Andrew was not only my attorney but he was my friend throughout these uncertain times. I 100% recommend it!

Dismissed My Case
When I hired Andrew I was very nervous. I was facing a serious felony and looking at several years in prison. Andrew challenged the evidence and the Judge ruled that everything against me was obtained illegally. The State then had no case and after fighting this for a year, the case was dismissed. I no longer have the stress of a prison sentence in front of me. I was able to breath again and owe it all to Andrew.

Straightforward person
Got myself into a situation and contacted Andrew Leone because he was referred to me by a friend. He is a very straightforward, no sugar-coating type of guy and told me what my options are. He did an amazing job for me with a very favorable outcome in my case.

Thank you!
It is a pleasure working with Leone and his team! I had a few meetings with different attorneys before hiring them and I just could not decide which attorney was right for me. Then I found Leone and after a phone call and a meeting, I was sure this was it. Gladly, I made the right decision. I was so blessed to have this team!

Good defense lawyer
I called for a consultation, and Mr. Leone was very kind and patient, listening to everything I had to say. He asked plenty of questions so he could understand my case, and even answered any questions I had. He went above and beyond- and immediately offered his representation if anything were to occur in the future, which I would be glad to call him because he is highly competent. I felt like I could breathe again after discussing my case with him. I am very grateful for all his advice so far and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good defense lawyer.

Im in good hands
My only complaint would be that I didn't go through Andrew in the first place with my legal matters. Andrew responded quickly and was very informative. I can rest easy knowing that I'm in good hands.

Made things easier
Finding an attorney is a tough process. There are thousands to choose from, but you know when you find the right one. Andrew Leone immediately made me feel better about things. After helping me get into treatment, he was then able to get my case dismissed. Now, I have my life turned around and better days ahead of me. Thank you, Andrew, for all your hard work.

Fantastic Job
I hired Mr. Leone a couple years ago and he provided superior representation with extreme professionalism. I was satisfied with the result, as I knew there would be some consequences for my actions. Unfortunately, I recently had to hire Mr. Leone again and this time he was able to get all charges dropped. He is a great attorney and should be recommended to all in need of help.

Thank you for your help
I was referred to Mr. Leone by a friend who had worked with him in the past. He did not disappoint. Mr. Leone explained the legal process in a way that was easy to understand. He recommended things that can be done to help our case. All of his advice was accurate and we were able to get through the case with as little damage as possible. Thank you for helping me.

Top advice and support
Mr Leone provided excellent consultation all the way through the legal process. He also was considerate around some sensitive issues, and willing to consider different options. He also was very responsive - helpful given nuances of this situation.

Mr. Leone kept me out of jail and got a felony charge thrown out. Big relief. I’m very satisfied with his work.

Happy I Hired Andrew
Great decision to go with Andrew for my assualt case. He said it was a tough case for the prosecutor. We pushed to go to trial and Andrew got them to drop the charge. I was scared I was going to jail and he got it dropped.

Excellent Lawyer
I found myself in a bit of a jam a few years back. No one listened to me except for Mr. Leone. He heard my story and offered to help. Just a few weeks after he was hired he let me know he was able to get the case dropped. I couldn’t believe it.

Knowledgeable & Professional MN Criminal Law Attorney
I contacted Mr. Leone for something I didn’t do, so I hired him for my case. I was confident I hired the best Attorney for my case, so I didn’t look elsewhere. I was right, he quickly got it dismissed without any stress on my end. Thank you Mr. Leone, I will recommend you to my family & friends.

Great Man, Great Lawyer
Shortly after the murder of George Floyd, I took part in peaceful protests of racial injustice. One night, a group I was with was approached by officers with their weapons drawn. Everyone in our group was arrested and charged with several misdemeanor crimes. I was terrified looking at an officer pointing a gun at me. When I got out of jail I called Andrew Leone. After explaining to him what happened he told me how proud he was of me. I couldn’t believe it, I was arrested and an attorney was proud of me. He told me that my voice needed to be heard. Then he really shocked me by telling me he would take my case at no charge. A couple months later, without ever having to go to court, Mr. Leone convinced the prosecutors to drop all the charges against me. I couldn’t have asked for a better result or a better attorney. He took his own valuable time to make sure justice was served in my case. I know attorneys don’t usually do things for free. But if anyone needs legal help I think they should call Mr. Leone.
