About me

Gregory S. Bachmeier, J.D. practices in the areas of Immigration, Criminal Defense and Personal Injury law. He has successfully represented hundreds of clients in immigration matters, such as Asylum, Withholding of Removal, Article III of the Torture Convention, Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status before the Immigration Court, Board of Immigration Appeals, Minnesota Federal District Court, and Second, Seventh and Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Greg has also written and presented materials on Post-Conviction Relief in State and Federal Courts.

Greg regularly appears in all of the courts in Minnesota (Federal, State and Immigration), however, he is able to travel anywhere in the United States in order to effectively represent his clients. Since immigration law is Federal law, Greg is not restricted to a specific area when representing clients with immigration matters.

Greg also defends misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor and felony charges. He has successfully defended theft, assault, criminal sexual conduct, driving under the influence, juvenile, and drug offenses. He also does post-conviction work, including vacating criminal convictions, withdrawing guilty pleas and reducing prior criminal convictions as well as expungment of criminal records.

Greg also handles personal injury cases, ranging from automobile accidents, slip and falls, premises liability cases, medical malpractice to excessive force claims against law enforcement officers.

Greg is admitted to the Minnesota Supreme Court, United States District Court, Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, Second Circuit Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and United States Supreme Court.

Greg received his bachelor's degree from Augsburg College and his Juris Doctor degree from Hamline University School of Law.

Greg is a member of the American Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association, Hennepin County Bar Association, Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights – Mentor, Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the

Minnesota State Bar Association.
