Summary

MSBA BOARD CERTIFIED CRIMINAL LAW SPECIALIST (612) 875-6574. I represent clients charged with serious felony and misdemeanor crimes, DWI and Implied Consent matters, and juvenile court delinquency and child protection matters. I have practiced criminal law for over 20 years. I started as a staff attorney in the Hennepin County Public Defender’s Office (Minneapolis, MN) where I represented indigent defendants charged with the most serious crimes including homicide, sexual assault and economic crimes. Then I worked as an Assistant County Attorney in the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office (Minneapolis, MN). As a prosecutor I was assigned to major felony divisions where I continued to litigate serious criminal trials and issues. I have done over 150 jury trials, mostly on the defense side. My experiences on both sides of the criminal justice system have provided me with the ability to assess the strengths and weaknesses of serious criminal cases; the knowledge to intelligently attack any weaknesses in the prosecution's case; and the courtrooom skills necessary to take advantage of this knowledge and experience for the benefit of my clients charged with serious crimes.
