Ask yourself this --- what do you do if you have been arrested for a crime? If you are like most people, you will probably panic.
At a minimum, what you should do, is contact a Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as possible. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your case, regardless of whether the whole situation is a big misunderstanding, regardless of if you have never been arrested before, the next best move you need to make (to avoid any more problems) is to speak to someone who knows what's really going on.
Or - just think of it this way - keep your head up, keep your mouth shut and call a lawyer ASAP.
What Are You Up Against?
In my career I've been party to every type of case - from almost every angle. I started out as a clerk to a judge, then I moved into the county attorney's office - and now (talking all I've learned) I represent defendant's in criminal court.
What this means for you is that you are getting an experienced, committed and aggressive trial lawyer that is not afraid to go above and beyond the boundaries to get you the best outcome possible. I represent clients facing all criminal offenses including:
- Criminal sexual conduct, prostitution and other sex crimes;
- Manslaughter, murder, assault and other violent crimes;
- DWI and other traffic violations;
- Probation hearings and orders for protection;
- Drug crimes including trafficking and possession;
- Repeat offenders and juvenile offenders;
- Obstruction of justice; and
- Fraud, false information, forgery and theft crimes.
All of these criminal accusations come with serious consequences if you're found guilty. In some instances you could be faced with a lifetime in prison and a fine as hefty as $1,000,000. In other cases you may only lose your license and receive a black mark on your record. However, in the best case scenario, you will be able to walk away with a clean record and a clear name. This is what we strive for when you work with the Rolloff Law Office.
Why and How a Lawyer HelpsOne of the biggest things that will impact your case is the evidence gathered by the government. Fingerprints, DNA, lab results, blood tests and urine samples can all be used against you. However, the thing about this kind of evidence is that there are often a lot of complications. Lab results are not just black and white – there are many gray areas in there that can be used to your advantage. While a proven DNA match may seem like an open and shut case, there could be problems with the retrieval of the sample, with the actual match and with the testing procedure. This is only one of the many examples of how, with in depth research and experience, all cases can be argued.
