I came across the Appelman Law Firm when a friend recommended Avery’s services to me. Knowing close to nothing about how the system worked, I was very relieved by how smooth the whole experience went with Avery. It was nice to work with someone who was so patient and willing to help guide me through the whole process. He broke things down to help us further understand the process without overwhelming my family and I with information. Avery was confident, reliable, and persistent in his work, and did everything he could to get me the best results possible. I was pleased with my experience from start to finish and happy with the overall outcome. I was very fortunate to come across the Appelman Law Firm, and would highly recommend Avery’s services to others in need.

I came across Appelman Law Firm when searching online and reading reviews. I found him to be very intuitive and he was able to alleviate any concerns or questions I had. I was pleased with Avery’s availability and immediate action. Avery and his associates were prompt to all meetings and always took my calls. The most valuable part of my experience with the Appelman Law Firm was Avery’s vast knowledge on legal issues. He was able to simplify the process for me by giving me the facts and options I needed to know. Avery showed much confidence throughout the whole procedure, which helped me stay positive. I was very satisfied the results Avery was able to get me, and I could not have done it without him. I would recommend the Appelman Law Firm to anyone in trouble because Avery can get results.

I have known Avery for nearly 20 years, naturally Avery was my “goto” criminal lawyer when I was cited for traffic violations time and again. Avery just knows the law and has experience unlike other criminal defense lawyers in Minnesota. He immediately put me at ease and lays out a plan to achieve my goals. Avery is careful to explain the nature of my problem and potential defenses, if you are like me and want to have all the information to make important decisions, Avery will sit with you, coach you through the process and relate even the smallest detail so you feel comfortable. The best thing about my experience with the Appelman Law Firm is the attentive service, they respond to your calls quickly, they talk to you, they demonstrate compassion and really want to help. I recommend people to the Appelman Law Firm because I know they are compassionate professionals who have the knowledge, experience and connections to get the job done!

I have been fortunate to have known Avery for nearly 20 years. As a practicing lawyer, I have met many criminal defense attorneys, Avery’s knowledge, compassion and willingness to serve his clients makes him the greatest criminal defense attorney I know. Through the years I have referred many clients to Avery for criminal representation. I know that a referral means that my name is associated with the other attorney. I know Avery will provide all of his clients with a vigorous knowledgeable defense. A factor I look for in criminal lawyers is their availability, it is critical. Some lawyers don’t make time in their day for their clients. Avery is unlike these stereotypical lawyers, Avery he is a very down to earth guy; Avery is easy to feel comfortable around, open up to and work with. Avery partners with his clients, develops an action plan and encourages his clients to help them help themselves. I believe that Avery has a true calling for being criminal attorney.
