Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorneys

Reputable Criminal Lawyers

Our Minneapolis criminal defense attorneys, led by Andrew S. Birrell, have a national reputation for excellence in criminal law. We are available to represent individuals, Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney public and private corporations and other entities in internal investigations, in pre-charge investigations, including the receipt of a target letter, grand jury investigations, pretrial proceedings, trials and appeals in Federal and State Court matters in Minnesota, in the upper Midwest and throughout the United States.

A favorable result in winning a criminal justice case may occur by convincing the prosecuting authority not to bring charges, by convincing the judge to throw the case out before trial, by winning the trial, by winning an appeal of a conviction at trial, by reaching a favorable settlement, including an agreement to suspend prosecution, or by some combination of these.

Make Sure You Hire an Attorney with Extensive Experience

We have been successful in obtaining favorable results for our clients in these ways in many different types of cases over many years in both federal and state courts in Minnesota and elsewhere.

We have represented clients in full range of federal and state charges including mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, identity fraud, securities fraud, RICO, public corruption charges, money laundering, tax charges, food and drug act matters, environmental offenses, national security offenses and many other types of cases in federal courts, and in state court cases. We have won not guilty verdicts for clients in cases involving murder, assault, criminal sexual conduct, felony adulteration of food, driving under the influence, etc.

Many of our cases involve such complex matters as the admissibility of evidence obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, representing targets before indictment, money laundering and tax matters, the discretion of sentencing judges after Booker, and other like issues. We have litigated the constitutionality of the federal bribery statute in federal district court, the Federal Appeals Court and the United States Supreme Court.
