Brandt Criminal Defense has two offices, located in the cities of Anoka and Hopkins, Minnesota. With over 30 years of experience, we have represented thousands of clients throughout the Twin Cities. We are an experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated team of lawyers who provide criminal defense to clients in every type of traffic and criminal matter, from speeding tickets to murder. We have resolved cases for clients by aggressively litigating evidentiary hearings, court trials before judges, and jury trials. We get to know our clients and their unique backgrounds so we recognize our clients’ concerns and can negotiate a favorable resolution that allows clients to put this stressful time in their lives behind them.
The attorneys at Brandt Criminal Defense will help you through not only the legal aspects of your case, but the personal aspects that impact your life as well. We understand that this is an anxiety-filled, stressful time in your life. We are committed to being available to you to respond to questions and issues that arise, no matter how large or small. We will thoroughly explain the law and the court process. We will give you honest advice – because we want to work with our clients as a team, and believe if we work together we can achieve the best result.
While practicing primarily in all types of criminal defense, our lawyers have also successfully defended clients in forfeitures, drivers license revocation hearings, school administrative hearings, restraining order hearings, and those who are under investigation and not formally charged. We frequently handle matters that arise following resolution of a criminal case, such as probation revocations, sentence modification motions, appeals, expungements, pardons, and the restoration of gun rights.
Our attorneys are routinely called upon by other attorneys in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota in need of advice with handling their criminal cases. Our attorneys frequently teach continuing legal education courses to update other attorneys on the latest changes to the law, legal strategies, and practical advice. Our goal as a law firm is to advocate for our clients while earning the respect of judges, prosecutors, and peers. The reputation of the lawyer that represents you makes a difference. Michael Brandt has been named a “Super Lawyer” by Law and Politics magazine for over the past consecutive ten years – an award based on input from other attorneys and judges. The award is given to only 5% of lawyers throughout the State of Minnesota. Our criminal lawyers are prepared to zealously protect your rights from start to finish. We take a common sense and practical approach to our criminal cases – we know when to litigate and when to negotiate.
