Types of Criminal Cases:

“There but for the grace of God, go I”

Three men, three crossesWhen the government targets you the experience is traumatic.  Then, what takes years to build up, can soon be destroyed.

It can begin with police incompetence, sloppiness or misconduct; a momentary lapse of judgment.  A false witness, or an uncorroborated accusation can get the ball rolling the wrong way.

But brought in early, a good lawyer can change the course of events.

The courts are a competitive arena.  And the police are the government’s soldiers, “targeting” people for destruction, in the name of the law.  Some prosecutors today have lost their way.  They care about winning more than about the truth or justice.

When the government’s top priority is expediency – the search for the truth is not.  It’s “fast-food justice.”

But good legal counsel can protect you.

Do you need a good Minnesota Defense Attorney?

We give you a voice.  A good defense lawyer does this by using his skill, experience and judgment to fight for that person.  We develop and execute the best defense possible.

The law is a tool.  Like all tools, we can use the law to help, to hurt, or not at all.  And with the right lawyer, you can make the law your tool.

After all, the legal system is really just people.

And people are not perfect.  They make mistakes – sometimes even mistakes like believing false accusations.

We can use the law as a tool to help persuade.  We can use the law to help show people the truth, the path to justice, the value of liberty.

Gallagher helps his people win their cases.
