I prosecuted for ten years, then defended, mostly DWIs, for 27 years.  I was endorsed by former attorneys General for having gained the special attention of their office, and a task force was formed to pay attention to my cases because I actually win more than most, but the same results keep coming.  The reason is cutting edge ideas, and hard work.  I am constantly answering emails from other lawyers, and give many seminars for them. I am a  lawyer who responds to client calls ASAP, and have many appellate wins as well, which you can find on the appellate court websites.

DWI
I was referred to Jeff from a family member that gave him a great review. Now, after working with Jeff, I am giving him five stars. He spent a lot of time on my case and in the end I didn’t even have to appear in court. 90% of my charges were dropped. Thank you for defending me, Jeff.

Review for Jeffrey Ring
I hired Jeffrey Ring to represent me in a very complex case and I'm glad I did. From the first time I met Jeff, I was impressed with his professionalism and dedication in helping prove my innocence. Jeff doesn't place judgment on you and is there to plead your case. After my first attorney failed me I knew I needed the very best and that is exactly what Jeff is. His experience and skill were evident in the courtroom. I'm happy to say, Jeff won my case and I could finally move forward in my life. I would strongly recommend him as an attorney you can put your trust in.

Defending son against Underage Drinking Minor, defense Fake ID charges, serious as underage DUI/DWI at U of Mn Minneapolis
My 18 year old son was jaywalking across a University of Minnesota street about two weeks into his freshman school year walking a friend home when a police officer stopped them and essentially intimidated the both of them into saying they had had a drink at a nearby bar. Bad idea. Both freshmen were 18 years old. The officer was very aggressive. Bad combination. He called for backup. For no reason.Two backups came. My son blew, after four tries, a .067. He was terrified. The young woman he was with was slightly over the legal limit. The two were both charged with having a fake ID. We were concerned because both of these fresh-people are high achievers, and an underage drinking charge or fake ID will stay with you for I think 6 years. As soon as you are in the system anyone that looks anything up on you will find these charges pending. Jeffrey was able to get both the fake ID charge as well as the underage drinking charge continued for dismissal. This means that in one year, if neither of these two are stopped for any criminal matter, they will then have the whole thing dropped. It will be as if it never happened. We didn't hesitate to call Jeff Ring. I knew him from another situation a long time ago, where he helped me out of the kindness of his heart and was brilliant! I appreciate Jeff taking the time that he did with us. Jeff is a good man, honest, direct, has a sense of humor, explains things well, and is an excellent and brilliant attorney. He really does care about justice and has the experience, the compassion, the knowledge of the law, and the ability to think creativity to effect good results. He does not do shame or blame or guilt. He does the law. And he also has an encyclopedia knowledge of music. I would definitely recommend him to anyone -- whether underage drinking all the way up to any other type of serious criminal charge -- this man is good! PS my kid got almost all straight As. Despite this scary thing hanging over his head. Also, Jeff Ring's office is very efficient, which makes things easy. Thank you Jeffrey Ring!!!! K a t h i l y n

Kept me from being a DUI felon
Bruce Ring represented me for four seperate DUIs. I so appreciated the "up front" payment rather than the typical DUI attorney financial arrangements so I did not worry about every consultation costing me more and more money. He also applies a discount for those of us who are "repeat customers." I would have become a felon had not Jeff managed to win one of my DUIs . . . so very grateful! Actually winning one of these DUIs is rare and difficult. He is tireless and a bull dog! Jeff is also a very pleasant individual and a joy to talk with.

Fantastic lawyer, even better person
As my case progressed, I got to know Jeff, and more importantly, got to respect him as a person. I truely felt that Jeff wanted the best possible outcome for me as an individual, and that he cared about me as a person. He is a great communicator and made sure I was fully aware of what & why things were happening. I would strongly recommend Jeff to anyone who needs an attorney that will fight for you without judgement.

DWI
My lawyer went the extra distance to work out a deal with the judge. I had to learn the consequences of my behavior in a rightfully punishment due to my character. Mr. Ring was by my side all the way, I put my life in his hands and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Jeff Ring did exactly what he told me he would do....
I was referred to Jeff from a friend who used his services in the past. After I explained my situation to Jeff and he heard all of the facts, he was able to create a go forward strategy and explained to me exactly how the process would work. We had a good chance to win my case, ( it was far from a slam dunk and I thought we had no chance to win) which meant he had to go before a judge twice to plead my cases. While in the courtroom, Jeff knew all of the attorneys, judges and clerks and had the respect of all of them. Jeff argued the exact points that we thought we could win and in the end he won the case for me, which dropped the major charge to a much lesser offense. in the end, Jeff did exactly what he told me he had planned to do and was always available by text, phone and email. i would highly recommend Jeff Ring and i will be referring him to anyone i hear that benefit from his services.

Review for Jeffrey B. Ring
After first meeting Jeff Ring I was impressed with how he carefully listened to our situation and gave us an idea of how he would proceed with defending our situation so we hired him. Our case involved multiple appearances and at each appearance he was prepared for the hearing. His experience, skill and professionalism were evident after the first hearing and at each appearance after that. I felt confident we received excellent legal advice and representation and was satisfied with our outcome. I would strongly recommend him as an attorney you can put your trust in.

Awesome
Jeff Ring made a miracle happen on my 2nd DWI case with the court system. Both DWI's consisted of very high alcohol concentrations. We were able to plea with only a 4 year probation, and forfeiture of vehicle. Main concern was no jail and to keep my job. Incarceration would have ended career for sure. With a letter to the judge from the both of us it worked! The fine given was a minimum, 4 years probation and one 2.5 hour class and interlock of course. What else could you ask for. If you don't hire Jeff Ring in a case like mine, good luck. I would recommend him without hesitation. Like most attorneys a little expensive but he kept my job so I can continue with a source of income. walking out of court is better than walking into jail. Nice work Jeff. I will definitely tell people about your firm if I know someone that needs help.

Positive Results from a very skilled Attorney
I strongly recommend Jeff as a very competent and effective attorney. I would not use anyone else! Jeff cares about you as a person and is very polished and professional in the courtroom. Jeff listened to everything I had to say and set about methodically building a strong defense. Due to his efforts, my revocation was rescinded, my DUI charge dismissed and my forfeited vehicle returned! Jeff was a passionate voice in ensuring that I could be heard and my story would be told. Thank you Jeff!

Excellent DWI lawyer
Mr. Ring represented me on a first time DWI with a high BAC reading. He knew the law better than the prosecutor and was able to use his up-to-date knowledge of the law to leverage an outstanding outcome for me. He was not only knowledgeable but he kept me informed of everything he was doing and why he was doing it. It was also clear that he knew virtually everyone in the courthouse including clerks, deputies, judges and attorneys. It was obvious to me that I wasn't just a client but was someone Jeff cared about. I can't recommend him highly enough.

My Ringing Endorsement
I’ve availed myself of Jeffrey Ring’s service twice; a ringing recommendation, in itself. I am writing this purely to help people who are in a jam and need a good attorney. With Jeff, you will be thoroughly apprised of your options and feel assured that you are on the best course. He is clearly held in high regarded by the court and its officers. Good luck!

Jeffrey Ring is the best-top attorney you can hire!!
I was facing mandatory prison time because of being charged with a felony DWI, which also included a probation violation. The original attorney I hired said my case was too tough for him to handle, and recommended I call Jeffrey Ring. Jeff is an amazing attorney! He is so experienced in these type of cases, and was by my side every step of the way. I had a ton of medical factors surrounding my case as well, and he used that as part of my defense. At all my various court appearrances, I could always tell that other attorneys and judges respected Jeff. Because of his amazing defending skills and knowledge of the legal system, I'm not in prison or jail. It's all because of Jeff. If you need help, call him.

John N.
Jeff and his Business Partner Sue are absolutely fantastic. I paid them one reasonable fee - one time - ( we never talked about money again) and they worked as a team to produce countless memos and documents to defend my case. Jeff appeared at least 8 times in court on my behalf. He is brilliant. He is caring. My case was really, really tough but Jeff was able to achieve a favorable result. He is truly a life changer. Being charged with a DWI ,of course, needs to be addressed with the utmost Professionalism, Honesty and Brillance. I just don't recommend Jeff Ring - I INSIST on Jeff Ring. You would be foolish to enlist anyone else. John N.
