Assertive Defense In Criminal Matters

A criminal conviction — even for a misdemeanor — can change a life. If you or a loved one faces criminal charges, it is vital to enlist the services of a criminal defense attorney who will provide personalized attention and work to prevent the charge from disrupting a defendant's professional or private life.

At Gries Lenhardt Allen, P.L.L.P., we provide assertive representation in the full range of criminal matters for clients throughout Minneapolis and the West Metro, including Hennepin County, Wright County and Sherburne County, from our offices in St. Michael and Plymouth, Minnesota.

Committed To Keeping Your Life On Track

Because each case is unique, we will take the time to carefully review the facts of your arrest in order to develop the strongest possible defense strategy. Our goal is to keep criminal charges off of your record whenever possible, or otherwise minimize the impact of a charge. Often, this can be achieved through a plea agreement that avoids going to trial. However, if the best possible outcome requires going to court, we are always prepared to do so.

We represent clients who face a variety of charges, including:

  • Drunk driving (DWI)
  • Drug charges — from misdemeanor possession to trafficking, manufacturing and other felony drug charges
  • Property crimes, including theft and burglary
  • Violent crimes, including assault, domestic assault and weapons charges
  • Sex offenses, including sexual assault, rape and child molestation
  • White collar crimes, including embezzlement, identity theft and fraud
  • Juvenile criminal charges

Clear Communication From Start To Finish

We combine high-level legal representation with personal attention that is important when dealing with criminal charges and your future. We emphasize clear communication, from the initial consultation through the resolution of your case. You will always know the status of your case and what the next steps will be. We will provide a thorough explanation of your options and allow you to help determine what course of action to take.
