Attorney Overview:

With a collection of investigative and prosecutorial experience, Chris co-founded Redmann Law, P.C. to offer additional services to the firm's clients primarily in the area of criminal defense.  After years in government service, he came to the private sector with a keen understanding and perspective that only a law enforcement and prosecutorial background can allow.

Attorney Background:

Chris grew up in northeastern Wisconsin and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin - Steven's Point. He later received his juris doctorate at the University of North Dakota - School of Law. After Chris completed his legal education, with an interest in criminal investigations, he worked for the Fargo Police Department. He investigated and responded to thousands of calls ranging from DUI and drug offenses to domestic violence and homicide. He obtained advanced training in DUI interdiction, standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs), Domestic Violence investigation, and completed both investigations and narcotics agent school. Chris left the Fargo Police Department to work as a prosecutor with the Burleigh County State's Attorney's Office in Bismarck, ND. Chris prosecuted hundreds of cases ranging from minor misdemeanor assaults to complex AA felony methamphetamine conspiracy. He attended advanced training in the prosecution of drug offenders and maintained a strong conviction rate in the office.

Chris ultimately left government service to join Redmann Law, P.C. as a partner focusing primarily on criminal defense litigation. He represents clients from all walks of life and in the full scope of state and federal criminal cases. His experience in both state and federal investigations is an incredible asset to his clients as he knows how the criminal investigation, charging, plea negotiation, and trial phases work and the many ways an attorney can advocate his client's best interests.  

In the scope of his defense work, Chris has represented clients involved in large federal drug conspiracies with life in a federal prison on the line to the very intricate and nuanced representation that comes with a DUI charge.  In addition to representing those accused of drug and alcohol offenses, he has also represented those accused of gross sexual imposition, luring a minor, theft, and assaults.  

Attorney Methodology:

Every case begins with a thorough client interview and consultation during which case goals, expectations, and rapport is established.  The next step is the investigation stage as the best defense is a great offense.  Every possible document, video, note, report, and recording is reviewed to look for possible defenses and prosecutorial weaknesses.  Furthermore, the firm utilizes a number of experienced experts to assist in creation of a defense theory; these experts range from private investigators, to psychologists, to polygraph experts.  It is during this stage that a more formal strategy is developed.  

In many cases the next phase involves “motions” to the Court to suppress, for example, illegally obtained evidence or statements made in violation of a client’s Miranda rights.  Some motions may be reserved for right before trial for tactical advantage while others are filed early.  Often winning an important motion will prevent the prosecutor from utilizing a critical piece of evidence and result in either a dismissal or substantial reduction in the charge.

Next is the negotiation stage with the prosecutor's office.  The negotiation stage often will disclose the prosecutor's strategies and thoughts on the case.  Typically, prosecutors will relay several plea offers to settle the case; it is at that point that additional client consultation and case valuation is discussed to determine if the best result is a plea agreement or trial.  

A case proceeding to trial is tenaciously prepped.  Witnesses are subpoenaed and prepared to testify, cross examination of the prosecutor's witnesses is developed, and jury presentation arguments are crafted.  Trial is truly the culmination of months of hard work and attention to detail as it all comes down to that final moment, after all the witnesses have testified, after all the evidence is in, and after the breaths of silence which precede each and every jury verdict.  Guilty or Not Guilty.  That is where a trial attorney earns his keep.

The best in Bismarck!
Chris was the best lawyer I could’ve hired in the area. I had 4 serious felonies against me due to an illegal search and seizure. Mr Redmann and his on point staff got me a full dismissal with ease. Redmann won’t leave you hanging or go for the first plea deal. Tenacious, aggressive(in defense) and a real go getter for the best possible outcome when facing any charges. Hire him, and for an even better odds, hire Justin Vinje to have them work as a team.

DUI reduced to minor traffic violation
I hired Chris, from Redmann Law, to help me with my first offense DUI charge. Not only was he very knowledgeable, him and his firm put in extra effort to manage court dates and set up hearings around my schedule, which allowed me to continue to work. They also put in more effort to correspond with me when I was out of the country. Along with that Chris really went the extra mile with preparation and case presentation thoroughly going through all of the police files and making strong points to get my high BAC blood test suppressed. He handled each step of the whole process regarding the administrative DOT side and the criminal conviction with confidence and ease. Resulting in my criminal charges being dropped of the DUI conviction. Which received me a plea deal of only a minor traffic ticket. I cannot say enough good things about him and his firm. Highly recommend.

Great lawyer
I made a mistake this summer. One I had always told myself that I wouldn't, but it happened. After contacting a few other lawyers, I knew that Chris was the one to go with. He sounded like he knew exactly what he was doing and especially, didn't treat me like I was an awful person or a criminal. I didn't feel judged by anyone I encountered at Redmann Law, especially Chris. They are wonderful people and I would recommend them to anyone. My case was dropped down and I have Chris to thank for that!! Would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Chris Redmann is the best lawyer in ND!!!
He helped me more then any lawyer I have ever had. He fought for me the whole time, even when it looked like it was a lost cause. He gave me the opportunity to fix my life and without that I wouldn't be who I am now. I'd be another lost soul in prison instead of sitting here making myself into a man and a dad. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much!!!

Great to work with.
I hired Mr. Redmann to represent my son. I have had many friends complain about their attorneys and I was very skeptical about the whole process However, Mr. Redmann was amazing. He was honest, easy to talk to, and would get back to me every time I called. We did get the outcome we thought was best for my son. It was not a not guilty plea but the consequences are appropriate for what happened. My son was also as pleased with him as he could be considering the situation. When looking for an attorney I would recommend someone who is personable, willing to listen, and is out for the best interest and possible outcome, not just a paycheck. Mr Redmann still asks about how my son is doing even though the process has been complete for several months.
