Criminal and Civil Appeals

Our attorneys practice law, but also help make it. Our Criminal and Civil Appeals attorneys understand that the trial court judge doesn’t always have the last word.

Our attorneys have had experience at the appellate courts and know what it takes to draft and argue a successful appeal. We’ve been handling civil, criminal, bankruptcy and family law appeals for over 25 years with experience in the Minnesota Court of Appeals, Minnesota Supreme Court and the U.S. Eighth District Court of Appeals. Some of our representative cases include:

Landa v. Landa, 369 N.W.2d 330 (Minn. App. 1985)
