Attorneys Mark Giancola & Rory Durkin

Not Afraid To Fight For The Outcome You Deserve

In our many years of criminal practice, we’ve seen far too many people take a plea in hopes that their troubles will go away before anyone notices. This is the wrong approach, often resulting in collateral damage that lasts years or decades.

At Giancola-Durkin, P.A., we focus on achieving the best possible outcome in every case we take. Sometimes that means reaching a plea deal with the prosecution and sometimes it involves taking a case to trial. However, it always means being prepared to go to trial. The prosecution knows we will go the distance on behalf of our clients, and that allows us to negotiate outcomes from a position of strength.

Criminal Defense Is Our Profession

Defending the rights of the accused is more than business for us; it’s our profession and our passion. Our practice is dedicated to the defense of individuals charged with felony and misdemeanor crimes in Minnesota. We have never been prosecutors because we believe that defense strategy requires a defense focus.

We combine for nearly 40 years of experience and have honed our craft in hundreds of trials, making sure our clients’ stories are heard by juries and judges.

Should I Just Plead Guilty And Make It Go Away?It’s crucial to explore your rights before making a decision.
