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

Three men, three crossesWhen the government targets you – in a police investigation or prosecution – the experience is traumatic.  Then what takes years to build up can soon be destroyed, if not defended.

It can begin with police incompetence, sloppiness or misconduct; a momentary lapse of judgment – a false witness, an uncorroborated accusation.

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

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

Be human – Avoid becoming another statistic

The names of innocents fill the court’s records  — dehumanized — conveniently blamed; convicted of crimes they did not do.

When evidence of actual innocence is eventually uncovered, courts may find technical excuses to refuse to consider it.  The United States has the highest per capita incarceration rate in the world.

Don’t let it happen to you.  With good legal work, we can fight and you can win.

Do you need a good Minnesota Defense Attorney?

Thomas Gallagher, Minneapolis Criminal AttorneyThe best attorney is devoted to helping one person.  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.

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.
