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!

After a getting into a verbal argument/disagreement with my sister; things went from yelling at each other to a physical fight and the police were called. We went our separate ways after that. A few days later I received a charge in the mail for domestic assault and the county was requiring me to go in for finger printing. With the type of career I am in; I was very terrified and upset regarding the charge and the significant impact would have on my career. My husband had used Avery's law firm in the past and he was the first name that popped into my head. Avery is AMAZING!!! He is very calming and after each conversation I had with him I was able to relax and BREATH knowing that he would take care of me and do what he could to make sure my career was not in danger. His office contacted me right away (in fact I wasn't even done filling out the online form and one of his paralegals were already calling me to assist). Avery called and emailed pretty much every day keeping me informed of what was happening and what steps I needed to complete before our case went to court. He even retained a lawyer for my sister!!! With Avery's amazing skills, the charges were greatly reduced and a minimal fine. (I attended an anger management class as well as had a chemical assessment eval done prior to court per Avery's recommendations. At court he was early and even checked me in!!! He had the paperwork ready for me to sign and made this nightmare of an experience go smoothly and the only word I can use is that I felt very safe and protected by him. Life is back to normal and my career is safe!! All thanks to Avery!!! He truly is one a kind and THE BEST!!! He has a very calming demeanor about him. I felt comfortable talking with him. I knew after our first meeting I was in great hands and he would take care of me!! I have not had personal experiences with lawyers (my step son and husband have) and Avery blows all of them out of the water!! He is prompt when returning phone calls and emails and is honest about the law and the facts. I would HIGHLY refer him to anyone!!! He is AMAZING!!! And very easy to talk to!

I was extremely worried about an Inattentive Driving citation I received from an accident in Ramsey County on September 7 of last year. Due to this ticket, I was unable to be licensed as an attorney in Minnesota, even after passing the bar! I was unable to be considered unless my matter had a final disposition, basically I had to pray the prosecutor would dismiss the citation against me or I had to plead guilty. Not knowing where to turn, I called Appelman Law Firm searching for help. Mr. Appelman's paralegal, Corey, was my first initial contact. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, and helpful. She set up an appointment with Mr. Appelman, who met with me on my schedule! I had a free consultation with Mr. Appelman who was very sympathetic to my situation, told me the process from here, and laid out a plan on how he could help. I hired him! Mr. Appelman held my hand every step of the way. He kept me informed and attended my court appearance with me. The case against me was dismissed! I am lucky for Mr. Appelman's representation, as he has played a huge role in helping me obtain my attorney license and fulfilling my dreams. I'll never be able to repay him for that.

When I was arrested, I was devastated. I was embarrassed and confused on what to do. A friend referred me to Avery Appelman. The first thing Avery told me was to just take a deep breath. He had this confidence about him and assured me that we will get through it. He had all sorts of experience with serious DWI related offenses and that gave me faith in him, more importantly his knowledge, experience and calm demeanor provided a huge sense of relief. Throughout the entire process Avery was reassuring, he always responded to my phone calls or text messages. I felt like I could call and talk to him at any time. The Appelman Law Firm staff was fabulous, they were reassuring and responded to my questions. I trust Avery and would highly recommend him to anyone charged with a crime. Avery is a results guy, he is the best at what he does and it reflected greatly in his work and his interaction with his clients. I would like to give a huge thank you to Avery. I could have never gotten what I got without him and his team. I have the upmost appreciation for them. Frankly anyone who is in need of an criminal lawyer go to the Appelman Law Firm.

I was referred to Avery Appelman by a friend. I have been happy with Appelman Law Firm for all of my traffic related matters. Talking to Avery I immediately recognized his knowledge of the law but more importantly he knew how to get things done. Avery knows the “ins and outs” of the legal system. I have interacted with him for a variety of different legal needs and he is quick on his toes, savvy, and will not settle for what he doesn’t believe is in the best interest of his client. Avery is a friend now, as I have referred him a number of my friends and co-workers. I trust Avery to handle their cases. He is always professional and compassionate. If anyone is looking for a smart, bright caring criminal lawyer, Avery Appelman should be your only call.

Being charged with crime is a very uncomfortable feeling, I felt embarrassed and didn’t know where to go for help. I had been refered to Appelman Law Firm by one of my best friends. He had a great experience using Avery for his legal assistance, and told me that Avery would put me back on the right track. Not only with legal advise but also life advice. Therefore I trusted him and used Avery without even looking any further. My friend also told me that I would see results from Appelman Law Firm, and that was very accurate. Avery put me at ease and stayed confident, trustworthy, and reliable throughout my entire case. Avery knows how to deliver and I would highly recommend that others reach out to Appelman Law Firm for their legal services.

From the very first phone call I had with Avery, I knew without a doubt I had made the right choice as having him as my lawyer. Our first encounter was in person, Avery was getting ready to go on a family vacation and the meeting was supposed to be brief. Instead, it lasted nearly 90 minutes, he maintained professionalism, and a level of confidence I needed the entire time. Avery and his staff were always prompt with responses and keeping me up to date. This was important as I lived in Arizona and felt a level of comfort knowing that the Appelman Law Firm kept me updated, which resulted in decreasing my anxiety. Before I hired Avery I was nervous and confused. I had no idea what to expect. Right after talking with Avery I felt relieved, and as my case kept moving on and progress was made I knew and felt like I was in the right hands at Appelman Law Firm. Avery succeeded in having my charges dismissed. He and his staff put in the work necessary to fully understand that facts and then completely investigated the case to show I was innocent. I am grateful to Avery for all his hard work. There is absolutely no better criminal lawyer than Avery Appelman. To anyone out there looking for a top notch Criminal Lawyer, contact Appelman Law Firm! I have no doubt they will work hard for you.

A friend of mine who is an attorney referred me to Avery when I was incarcerated for a 3rd degree DWI. I reached out to Avery and it turned out that he was out of town, that did not affect his undivided attention on me and the issue that needed resolving. After my first phone call with Avery I felt relieved and everything went smoothly all the way through the conclusion. Avery was able turn my gross misdemeanor into just a misdemeanor as well as allowing me to avoid jail time and community service.
Avery communicated every step of the process to me and he was many steps ahead of the game. He had me do everything the court was going to ask me to do before the court even had to ask.
Avery’s legal representation was phenomenal but what was most proprietary about his service was his compassion and understanding. He humanized the process and from personal experience, that alone is priceless.

I recently recommended Avery to a friend in need of legal help. After personally being represented by Avery twice I had grown to know him As someone that is not only forthcoming, honest and extremely genuine, but puts in more work to see the best outcome for the client then expected. That said I knew my friend was going to be in good hands.
In terms of my cases, Avery achieved favorable results in both of my cases that blew my expectations out of the water. In the first of the two cases, I was facing a serious traffic offense which could have resulted in a substantial amount of jail. Through his expertise in criminal defense, Avery was able to reduce the sentenced rom 90 days in county to just 10 days of community service. In the second case, after receiving 5 tickets for driving without insurance and driving after suspension, I called Avery with no hesitation. He not only Got my driver’s license valid but he kept me out of jail, he appeared at all 5 court cases and negotiated settlements that included no more than community service.i don't know any other attorney that was this consistent, Avery kept me thoroughly informed through the entire process and he was available to take my calls and questions all times of the day whether in the office or not. I was never in the dark which helped my peace of mind during such a stressful time. Avery is a legend, look no further, you've found your attorney.

Avery defended me in a traffic violation for 16 over the speed limit. Originally I was going to represent myself until the prosecuting attorney basically told me that I was screwed for a 16 over speeding ticket. The ticket would of had a measurable impact on my insurance. I enlisted the services of Avery. After Avery got involved, the prosecuting attorney agreed to settle. As a result, I had no impact to my insurance premiums. Avery is absolutely amazing!
