Our Experienced Criminal Lawyers
Being under investigation or facing criminal charges can be incredibly stressful. For those who have been arrested or have a criminal charge in either federal or state court, you need the support and advice of an experienced attorney immediately.
Andrew Birrell has indeed argued before the US Supreme Court concerning the federal bribery statute’s facial constitutionality. He has also stood before the US Court of Appeals many times. Andrew and Ian have both argued before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, the Minnesota Supreme Court, and Minnesota federal district courts. Over time, we have won orders for new trials and reversals of convictions in the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
We have extensive experience when it comes to the prosecution process. It begins with a police officer or federal agent conducting an investigation and culminates with a judge hearing an accusation against you. We genuinely understand that the entire process can be worrying and traumatic. It can be the hardest thing you will go through in your life. But our MN Criminal Law Firm can give you the very best advice and representation.
Reputation Matters when Hiring an Attorney
If you are under investigation — meaning the authorities are deciding to accuse you of having committed a crime — or if you have already been accused, then both your reputation and your continued freedom are at stake. You need immediate guidance and assistance from a law firm with a great reputation for fighting for our valued clients against criminal charges. This is not the time for you to try to “go it alone.”
Andrew S. Birrell leads our Minneapolis criminal defense attorneys that have a national reputation for prowess in criminal law. Birrell Law Firm is always available to represent people, private and public corporations, and any other entity in pre-charge investigations, internal investigations, pretrial proceedings, grand jury investigations, trials and appeals in State and Federal Court matters throughout Minnesota, in the upper Midwest, and across the United States.
When it comes to a criminal justice case, a favorable result in winning might occur by either of these ways:
– Convincing the prosecuting authority to not bring charges or throw the charges out;
– Convincing the judge to throw out the case before trial;
– Winning the trial;
– Winning an appeal of a particular conviction at trial; or
– Reaching a favorable settlement (including an agreement to suspend prosecution under certain terms).
We at Birrell Law Firm recognize that different people have different goals, and we want to work with you to figure out how to achieve a favorable result for you whether that means fighting tooth and nail or handling the case quietly and discreetly.
How Can Our Attorneys Help?
Our team of criminal lawyers has broad criminal law expertise. We will provide you with the help you require every step of the way. We will keep you updated on the status of your case and what you should expect at each stage. We are proud to work with our clients to achieve the best possible result in their cases.
Future Employment and Criminal Convictions
People charged with crimes are often worried about the implications a criminal conviction could have on their career. This is understandable, as some convictions can have huge effects on peoples’ careers. It can even effect college programs, graduate degrees, and financial aid qualification. At Birrell Law Firm, we understand the collateral impact a criminal conviction could have on your life. We do everything we can to reduce the effect on all areas of your life, personal and professional.
How Much Will This Cost?
Since all criminal cases are unique, we at Birrell Law Firm will let you know how much it will cost after we have a chance to review your case. We represent clients pursuant to written contracts that outline how much our representation will cost and what the scope of that representation will be. We resent some clients under fixed fee arrangements and others by billing on hourly rates. Which one is appropriate depends on the individual client and the individual case. Regardless of the specific terms of the contract, we are proud to provide our clients with a transparent process that provides them as much certainty as possible.
Both you and your attorney discuss the matter and come up with an approach for how to handle it. We will discuss what is the job that is to be done and how the fee is to be paid. Once we agree on its terms, you’ll sign the contract, and our attorneys will begin work.
Our services can be expensive. But there can be nothing more “expensive” than a cheap lawyer.
