St. James and Mankato Defense Attorneys Representing Clients Throughout Southern Minnesota

The prospect of a criminal conviction is a daunting one. Depending on the circumstances, you could face the loss of your job, relationships, reputation, and of course, your freedom. A criminal conviction can cost you access to higher education and government benefits. Even after your sentence is completed, a conviction casts a cloud over you that is impossible to shake.

Unfortunately, good people can find themselves facing criminal charges through a case of mistaken identity, false reporting, or a momentary lapse in judgment that results in a wrongful act. When that happens, it's critical to have the best possible defense to prevent an unjust conviction from ruining your future.

Birkholz & Associates is committed to protecting the rights and reputations of clients who are facing criminal charges and guiding them safely through the often intimidating criminal justice system.

Strong Defense for Minnesota Criminal Matters

Crime is a serious matter, so it's no wonder that the Minnesota criminal justice system puts so many resources behind police officers and prosecutors, whose job is to find, arrest, and punish criminals. Who is looking out for your rights if you've been charged, and making sure the system is truly just? Your defense attorney. That's why your choice is so essential.

Birkholz & Associates defends individuals charged with:

  • Felonies
  • Gross Misdemeanors
  • Misdemeanors
  • Drug Sale and Possession
  • Assault
  • Sexual Crimes
  • Domestic Assault
  • Theft
  • Burglary
  • Probation Violations
  • Traffic Tickets

Your choice of an attorney can mean the difference between a dismissal or acquittal and a clean record, or a conviction with consequences that will follow you for years. Birkholz & Associates was founded by Dan Birkholz, an attorney with nearly a quarter-century of experience as a prosecutor. Our attorneys understand the criminal justice system inside and out, and our experience accrues to the benefit of our clients.
