Your Minnesota Defenders For Violent Crimes Charges

Violent crimes charges, such as assault, homicide or domestic violence, can turn your life upside down in the short term and limit your freedoms in the long term. If you have been charged or have reason to believe you are under investigation, it is crucial to seek the defense counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

In Minnesota, that means turning to the professionals at Giancola-Durkin, P.A. Our proven lawyers fight criminal charges in the Twin Cities and every corner of Minnesota.

Defending Against Felony And Misdemeanor Assault Charges

In Minnesota, assault and battery charges include a range of crimes that each have their own distinct penalties. Charges range from first-degree assault, a felony, to fifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

The circumstances surrounding these charges can include domestic disputes, bar fights or simple misunderstandings. Our skilled attorneys have proven their ability to resolve these matters favorably for our clients in Anoka and throughout Minnesota.

Homicide: Minnesota's Most Damaging Charge

The penalties for taking a human life — even if unintentionally — are very severe. Homicide laws encompass offenses such as:

  • Murder (first degree, second degree and third degree)
  • Manslaughter
  • Attempted murder
  • Criminal vehicular homicide

We fight aggressively in these cases, preparing every homicide case for the possibility of trial. This allows us to engage the prosecution from a position of strength and ensure we obtain the best possible outcome for the accused.

Accused Of Raising A Hand? You Could Lose Your Right To Bear Arms.

One of the collateral consequences of a domestic violence conviction is losing your right to own or possess a firearm for the rest of your life. Our firm has extensive experience defending against damaging domestic violence charges, and we are well-versed at navigating the process for achieving the restoration of second amendment rights.
