Minnesota Expungement Attorneys
North Star Criminal Defense is a full-service law firm, specializing in criminal defense and Minnesota expungement law. We pride ourselves on not only getting favorable results for our clients, but also on the fact that former clients routinely refer us to friends and family that need our services. Our clients get the respect and attention they deserve. Our success rests on these three guiding principles:

Personalized Legal Strategy

A client is a person, not another file. North Star Criminal Defense takes a hands-on approach with every client to fully understand their entire case so that a truly personalized legal strategy is developed. Then we work with you in strategically developing ways to improve your case. For instance, we may advise you to seek character letters from individuals. But, we don’t stop there; we also advise you on who you should seek the letters from, what they say, and how they best work into your case. By taking the time to build and improve your case, North Star Criminal Defense develops and implements a personalized legal strategy that will serve you best.

True Expertise in Expungements

Most defense firms handle expungements irregularly. North Star Criminal Defense is different. We specialize in this field because we care about helping people get the second chances they need and deserve. To that end, we are well-known and respected in our field for this work. We have spoken at numerous continuing legal education seminars on this topic and even been published by a magazine distributed to attorneys and judges statewide. This expertise serves our clients well when making persuasive arguments at court on their behalf. And this usually leads to our clients getting the expungement they need.

Unmatched Client Care

North Star Criminal Defense prides itself on its client service. We know that this expungement is critical to your future. That is why we focus on giving you the respect and attention you deserve. This means that your calls and emails are answered as promptly as possible. Your questions and concerns will be addressed. And you will be informed throughout the entire process. We work tirelessly to earn your trust and to keep it.
