Minneapollis Lawyer

Criminal Defense in Minneapollis

Benefits of a Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal law is a complicated combination of process and law. While commission of a crime may appear black and white, regulations enacted by state and federal legislatures to describe and deter that act are not. Because of this complexity, your criminal defense lawyers in Minneapollis must be knowledgeable about both process and system.

Criminal acts are generally classified a misdemeanor or a felony. Misdemeanor charges might include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or petty theft. Conviction on misdemeanor charges draws a fine or imprisonment for less than one year. Felony charges, like violent crimes such as murder, aggravated assault, or robbery, are more serious and conviction brings imprisonment in excess of one year.

Legal trouble at either level is distressing. Few areas of law require retention of an attorney immediately, but if you are facing criminal charges, quickly contacting a Minneapolis criminal defense lawyer could save your future.
