Drug Crimes


I was referred to Kelly Keegan at Brandt about a year ago…. From another attorney! I had had some things in my past that did not reflect the person that I am today. I hired another firm to help me with my expungements. After this was done. I assumed my gun rights had been restored… I was wrong. This lawyer got me over to Kelly. I should have done more research and been with her from the get go. I have never felt more taken care of in my life. This firm is professional, helpful, and they care and get it. She won’t take your case if she doesn’t think it has a good chance. Things didn’t always go my way, but Kelly never backed down. It was worth every penny! I would recommend her to anyone. Actually, honestly, I already have. You owe it yourself to talk your case(s) with Kelly and the Brandt Criminal Defense Firm.

Past Client

I was represented by Nicole Kettwick, In two cases in anoka county. I have only had to have a attorney twice in my life prior to this, and i must say Nicole was the most professional, friendly, and efficient attorney I have had. She Always responded to my emails promptly, and always seemed to care about what was best for me. I was never pushed in one direction but was able to make my own decisions based on what was best for me me!

Past Client

Mike helped me out with a domestic assault case. He was extrenely responsive, answered all my questions, promptly returned my phone calls, and walked me through every step in this pocess. This was one of the most stressful times in my life and MIke made it very bearable. The outcome was better than I had hoped for–Mike convinced the prosecuter to drop the charges. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs a great criminal lawyer.
