I have always had a strong interest in helping people. Growing up I discovered I was a natural leader with strong advocacy skills. Throughout high school and college, including law school, my friends and peers relied on me to get things done. I value individual rights and constitutional freedoms and strongly believe that protecting against infringement of those rights by the government or greedy corporations is of primary importance. My career in law has been a natural extension of my skills and interests.

The best lawyer in all of North Dakota. Hands down.
Jared is extremely professional, genuine and intelligent. He has represented me in a past case as a public defender and is representing my husband in his case. He is very professional and assuring in what he does. He explains everything in detail in a way we can understand. He is he a REAL lawyer who cares about his clients cases and not just money. We will ALWAYS recommend Jared Gietzen!!!

Professional and Assuring
Jared was responsive and made sure I understood the legal process throughout my case. Michael shared best case and worst case scenarios and was successful in achieving best case for me. I felt confident that my case was being handled and that I was being represented by an expert in the field.

Hands down a wonderful guy
I was having troubles with an ex and I spoke with Jared regarding what my legal options were, he listened to the situation and offered some much needed advice both personal and legal. My opinion is he is a kind and caring individual who takes the time to listen and respects his clients. I would definitely recommend

Excellent attorney
Jared is an excellent attorney and human being. He was sincerely concerned with the outcome of my case and spent time and effort to come to a solution that was beneficial to me. The state wanted 90 days jail time and I plead out to 40 hours community service and a year unsupervised probation. He's an aggressive, concerned attorney that treated me more like a friend than a client. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services!

THANKS!!
Jared Gietzen is a brilliant young man and saved me from a very serious charge. The outcome was far more than favorable, and he has all my respect as an attorney, AND as a human being.

DUI
I was happy that I hired Jared to represent me in my DUI case. It was a pretty serious deal and I was facing the real possibility of jail time because of some prior convictions even though they happened long ago. We ended up accepting a plea deal that kept me out of jail and got me the help that I needed. I'm sure that I couldn't have done all this on my own and I truly feel that Jared helped me get the best possible outcome out of a bad situation.

Beyond the call
I can not begin to say how Jared saved us. My daughter needing a lawyer and from out of state, we were at a loss. From my first conversation with Jared after finding him through an internet search he was so helpful. It was after hours but he was able to look up the charges and explain to me what had happened. He assured me he would make some calls in the morning to get the details, which he did. To make a long story short, he got her charges reduced with no bail required. He traveled lots of miles to get documents signed and filed with the courts. Got her released picked her up and gave her a ride to her car over 30 miles away and seeing her safely out of town toward home over 600 miles away. He went beyond the call of duty before we even talked about his fee. I am not saying he would or even could do this for everybody but I wish he practiced law in my state of Montana. I felt calm and confident that my daughter was in good hands and was able to sleep until her return a few days later. Thank you, Jared

Great Lawyer
Jared truly has a passion for his job. He helped me get through the toughest time of my life and I can't thank him enough. Without him I don't know how I could have managed to figure it out on my own. He managed to get my charges lowered and saved me money and time! I definitely reccomend Jared as your attorney. He goes above and beyond for you and truly wants to help you.

Excellent representation, provided hope without portraying false hope
I hired Mr. Gietzen immediately after talking with him by phone. He obviously was very familiar with cases similar to mine and knew what to do and how to go about doing it. Mr. Gietzen treated me with respect, spent the necessary time to answer all of my questions and discuss options for my case. As the case unfolded, he kept in touch, even after hours, to keep me abreast of developments. My case was resolved favorably, in part due to Mr Gietzen uncovering a failure in due process on the part of law enforcement. I would hire him again to handle any case I may have that falls in his practice's line of business.

Great job in a tuff county
Mr Gietzen did a great job in a county that does not drop down the speed on tickets. He managed to get mine dropped down that saved my job. Excellent and would recommend him to others.

Results!
Mr. Gietzen listened to me during our initial consultation, asked great questions to ensure he understood what he needed to and advised me to continue on with my medical appointments. He immediately noticed the court clerk's mistakes and called the clerk, emailed the judge and requested dismissal. The judge didn't dismiss on that request, but in the end the judge did dismiss the case. Why did the judge dismiss? Because Mr. Geitzen gathered all the evidence to prove the petitioner untruthful! Mr. Geitzen was ready and he wasn't going to back down. Great JOB!!

Best decision I could've ever made.
One of the best decisions I could've made was looking up the Larson Law Firm. I was very appreciative of the service that I got from Jared. He is a firecracker, that's something that everyone should want to represent you. He turned a bad situation into a good situation for me. He worked his tail off days in and days off to get the best outcome for me. Another thing, he is a really good inspiration. This was the first time I've gotten into trouble and he began to share with me stories about his life that somehow tied into what I had going on. I really can't thank him enough. Top lawyer in Minot if you asked me.

My hero
I found myself facing an attempted murder charge in an unfamiliar state. I knew no details of the altercation other than I had been knocked unconscious. After firing my first attorney for failing to do his job in a total of 8 months, I was blessed to have Mr. Gietzen on my defense team. He tracked down the truth. He found the flaws in so called witness stories. He had evidence handed over to the defense that should have been given over from the start. He turned my whole case around. Thanks to him I was able to leave jail and come home to my wife and daughters.

Wouldn't trust anyone else
Mr. Gietzen worked on the criminal defense team for my husband and the subsequent civil case team. He always went above and beyond to get to the truth of the matter. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our legal needs in the state of North Dakota.
