You might be on this website because you have a problem and you want it solved quickly and quietly. Perhaps you suspect that you are being investigated by state or federal law enforcement. How do you choose which Minneapolis criminal defense attorney to hire? The answer to that question should consider a number of factors, including the lawyer's reputation, experience, history of success, and ability to work hard and be prepared for your defense.

We are the Minneapolis criminal defense firm behind the scenes ... working together to solve your problem as efficiently as we can. Whether your problem ranges from DWI / Drug Offenses to Criminal Sexual Conduct to Murder, Expungement or major Federal White Collar Crime, we are a specialized criminal defense law firm designed to represent our clients as aggressively as possible. And you can rest assured that our criminal defense team has handled cases much like yours many times over. We have been solving problems like yours for many years, so you can be confident we have the experience and proven success to handle your issue with the utmost competency.

Word of mouth is the best advertising. Most of our cases are referred to us by former clients, other criminal attorneys, and even prosecutors who we have battled against in trial. There is a reason our opponents refer their friends and family to us when they get in a jam … because we are good at what we do and they know it. Besides being a Criminal Law Specialist, Ryan has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2009. He is also one of the few attorneys selected by the Minnesota Police and Peace Officer Association (MPPOA) to represent police and law enforcement officers during “critical incidents” while on duty. His most recent cases include homicide cases where the police officer used critical force in self-defense.

Attorney Elizabeth R. Duel is an integral part of the team and its trial work. An expert in technology with the use of a sophisticated trial program called Trial Director (a program used by the United States Attorney’s Office and Federal Defender’s Office), she litigates nearly every jury trial with Ryan, assisting in all aspects of the litigation. Prior to joining the firm, she externed for the then-chief judge of Hennepin County Criminal Court and interned with the United States Federal Defender’s Office.
