MINNESOTA CRIMINAL DEFENSE
The attorneys at Heefner Nelson Law are experienced criminal defense lawyers who represent individuals facing all types of criminal charges, including but not limited to, DWI/DUI, Drug Offenses, Sex Crimes, Violent Crimes and Federal Crimes. We also handle the collateral consequences of certain crimes, such as vehicle forfeiture, currency forfeiture, and the forfeiture of other types of personal property. If you have been charged with a crime, we have the experience to assist you in every aspect of your case.
We will not wait until a client is formally charged with a crime. Early intervention often is key because it gives us a head start on the prosecution, allowing more time to conduct investigations, interview witnesses, and research all legal options. Being proactive in a criminal case can often mean the difference between facing felony, gross misdemeanor or misdemeanor charges, or no charges being filed at all.
However, if you hire us after being charged with a crime, there are various steps we will take to ensure that your case is properly handled and given the attention it deserves. We will thoroughly review all police reports and other documents, listen to all recordings, and view all video that has been generated during the course of the investigation that led to you being charged. We have various investigators at our disposal that can assist us in locating witnesses and other evidence that can help in your defense. We will vigorously contest the admissibility of various types of evidence including, but not limited to, confessions, evidence found as a result of a search, or the stop of your vehicle. More often than not, criminal cases result in some sort of a plea bargain. If such a situation presents itself, we will diligently work to achieve the most favorable result to you, and will not be satisfied unless you are as well. Ultimately, your case may go to trial. Whether the case is tried before a judge or a jury, we will work tirelessly to defend you.
