Best Criminal DUI/DWI lawyer in the Twin Cities
Working with Scott was an amazing experience. He is a very determined Lawyer with great knowledge in his field of practice. He is also very well known in the courts system therefore he was able to get me the best resoulution for my case. When I fist got my letter to appear in court I was nervous and terrified, but Scott helped me calm those nerves. told me step by step what needed to be done and assured me that he will do whatever it takes to get me the best possible resolution, he also mentioned that he had worked on a similar case before and was able to acheive the same outcome. Those words calmed me down immensely, and Scott was very responsive towards me throughout the process, updating me regularly. I could not have asked for a better Attorney to represent me.

Scott is a world class attorney! 10 out of 10
Scott is amazing at what he does and is just an overall great guy! I spoke with 4 other attorneys and none of them made me feel as comfortable as Scott did. He took time to actually hear me out and understand the situation and then walked me through all the steps in simple terms as well as putting me at ease. Before this I had never spoken with an attorney and I had never been in trouble with the Law. I was very scared and after my first 20 minute conversation with Scott, all my issues were put to rest. Scott has been doing this forever, has a long successful history with law, and seems to be in good favor with a lot of other attorneys, prosecutors, and judges. I got in trouble with a DWI and when it was all said and done, the pricing was very reasonable, the results were 20 times better than expected, and could not be happier! I certainly hope I don't need his services again but if myself or anyone I know gets in a similar situation to me, I would recommend no one other than Scott Thank you so much!

Great Lawyer!
I hired Scott because he was very experienced and had great reviews. The entire process went very smoothly and it was very hassle free for me. He always kept me in the loop and called me to give me updates on things, and also was very time flexible. I am a very busy man and he made everything very simple for me. Not to mention, he beat my Revoked License and Hit and Run case and erased everything off my record. Thank you!!!

Great Attorney worthy your call.
Great Attorney, Able to calm me down and offer the key suggestion on the phone call. He even does not suggest me to hire him since its a minor case from his PoV. Worth a call at least!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Scott Anderson is an excellent attorney. Scott listens, understands and did everything possible to win my case. Scott was always available for any question I had. My case was a rare and difficult one, however, that did not waiver Scott from putting all his effort into providing my excellent outcome. Scott was always honest with me about possible outcomes and did not sugar coat anything so there were not any surprises. Without Scott’s knowledge and expertise within the courts, I would have had a much different outcome I believe. I highly recommend Scott for anyone who is in need of a lawyer.

Making end of life decisions with ease
Scott helped me to revisit and define my end of life arrangements. He listens to my thoughts and helped guide me through the various decisions I needed to make with such ease and great commitment to getting me exactly what I needed and wanted.
