Our Criminal Law Services

Violent crimes like assault can lead to serious charges. CJB Law’s criminal defense attorneys are experienced and informative in these cases and can help you determine factors that may impact the success of your case or repercussions of a guilty plea or verdict.

There are several levels of assaults, depending. The severity or degree of assault charge will depend on the alleged act committed. If you’ve been alleged to willfully or negligently cause substantial harm or injury to another person, it’s imperative that you appoint a trusted criminal attorney immediately. We’re prepared to help with your case and provide exceptional representation throughout the process.

Felonies include a wide variety of serious crimes and are determined by the length possible sentence and incarceration of a year or more. These crimes include but are not limited to murder,

  • Homicide and murder
  • Certain aggravated DUI and DWIs
  • Weapon and gun charges
  • Drug offenses
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault and criminal sexual conduct

An order for protection provides a victim of domestic abuse protection against further harm or domestic abuse. While these orders cannot stop an abuser, they do create guidelines that allow survivors or othersthe ability to call the police if the order is violated.

Order for protection violations can result in felonies, gross misdemeanors or misdemeanors.

Our dedicated team of criminal defense attorneys is dedicated to defending people arrested for drunk or impaired driving (DUI’s and DWI’s). We treat every client with attention and incredible care to ensure that they are receiving a supportive legal team.

Throughout Minnesota, we’ve represented our clients in a wide variety of cases, including repeat offenses and felony drunk driving.

Being accused of a sex crime can be a terrifying endeavor, and convictions can be devastating for your future. Our attorneys are here to help make sure you don’t go through it by yourself. We’ve helped a number of our clients reduce or even have their charges dismissed. Every case is different, and varying severity of sexual misconduct carries progressively steeper sentences. We know that your case has a lot on the line — that’s why you need an experienced attorney by your side.

The results of a sentence can often lead to probation. Violating the terms of probation can place an individual in a tough spot and create further issues and sentencing.

Many individuals that are alleged to have violated their probation don’t realize they can partake in a contested hearing that allows them to dispute the alleged violations. Whether you or someone you love is dealing with probation, conditional release, or supervised release violations — CJB Law can help.

While paying a traffic violation may seem like the easiest option, it’s sometimes not the smartest. Regardless of the severity of your traffic offense, having a moving violation on your record can be limiting. Insurance costs may rise, employment opportunities may dwindle, and you’re one step closer to having your licensed revoked.

Moving violations are defendable or negotiable, and an experienced traffic offense attorney can help you achieve a resolution that fits your best interests. We’ll help you fight for your case.

Minnesota Statute 609.72, 2009 states that “whoever does any of the following in a public or private place, including on a school bus, knowing, or having reasonable grounds to know that it will, or will tend to, alarm, anger or disturb others or provoke an assault or breach of the peace, is guilty of disorderly conduct.

Disorderly conduct includes but is not limited to a wide variety of offenses, including fighting, disturbing a meeting or assembly, or engaging in offensive, abusive, obscene, or noisy conduct.

Juveniles or adults who are arrested or convicted of disorderly conduct should consult with a veteran criminal offense attorney for experienced legal advice.
