If you have been charged with any of these crimes or another criminal offense, Birkholz Law, LLC will put experience to work for you. We have practiced in over a dozen counties in Southern Minnesota, which means we know how the courts of each county work. We know what makes each different and what to expect. This is knowledge we can use in your case to benefit you.

Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney

While the goal is to avoid conviction, there are times where it can’t be avoided. If it can’t be avoided, it is still possible to have the charges reduced based on the facts of the case. While a conviction can cause difficulty keeping or getting a job, finding a place to rent or lease, get a loan, and even go back to school, reducing the charges so that the conviction occurs on a lesser charge can increase the chances toward a better future. There are some instances in which the charges can be completely dropped. If not dropped, then it is possible for you to be acquitted of the charges.

Effective Defense Strategies

While no two cases are alike, Birkholz Law, LLC has the experience and the knowledge to create effective defense strategies. These strategies can consist of any rights violations or other factors that can benefit you. Just as the prosecution can bring about evidence against you, there are ways to show that the evidence is weak when it is. If a judge or jury is given reasonable doubt, they cannot convict and that is what we strive for so you can move on with your life.
