If you have been accused of a criminal act, arrested and charged, or are simply under criminal investigation, then you know that your future and well-being are at risk. A conviction of a felony crime can be followed by substantial prison time and a permanent criminal record. A conviction can significantly limit your options later on in life for pursuing employment or even determine where you are allowed to live. Our professional attorneys don’t want this to happen and understand the value of a person’s freedom and good name. The time to act is now and top Minneapolis criminal defense lawyers Andrew Birrell and Paul Dworak are here to help.
