Veterans’ Defense

Those who have protected our country’s people and interests by serving in foreign and often dangerous locations may suffer psychological injury that lead to uncharacteristic behavior considered unlawful. Because of their unique experiences, veterans need defense from lawyers who recognize the intricacies of their situations and know what legal options are available to them. Our attorneys in Minneapolis are both veterans who stand up for our nation’s heroes.

Assault

This offense involves the intended or actual infliction of bodily harm upon another. Under Minnesota law, there are five degrees of assault, and charges range from misdemeanors to felonies. Despite the offense you have been accused of, it is necessary to get a skilled Minneapolis criminal defense attorney on your side right away.

Criminal Sexual Conduct

Unlawful sexual contact or penetration is taken very seriously in MN. Depending on the situation, the penalties for a conviction can result in up to 30 years in prison. The stakes of being found guilty of criminal sexual conduct are too high not to retain skilled legal representation for your case.

Theft

In general, theft involves the unlawful taking of another person’s or entity’s property. Minnesota law specifies several types of conduct falling under this definition. Whether you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or felony theft, our Minneapolis criminal defense lawyers are ready to fight for you.

Juvenile Defense

If a person under 18 years of age is accused of a crime, their case will move through processes that differ from adult criminal matters. Because the juvenile justice system is structured differently, it is imperative that you have a lawyer on your side who understands the nuances of this system. Our team at Brockton D. Hunter P.A. can effectively guide you and your child through their case and fight to protect your child’s future.

Drug Crimes

Both the state and federal governments have strict laws concerning conduct involving controlled substances. Possessing, selling, and transporting drugs (as well as a range of other activities) are prohibited and can lead to a misdemeanor or felony charge. A conviction can ruin your life, which is why it is necessary to aggressively fight the accusation with the help of a Minneapolis criminal defense attorney.

DWI

Being found guilty of operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol can seriously hamper the course of your life. Not only can a conviction result in incarceration and/or fines, but also the suspension of driving privileges. When you call Brockton D. Hunter P.A., we will act quickly to defend you.

Domestic Assault

Harming or attempting to harm a family or household member is not a personal matter; it is a criminal one. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors take domestic assault crimes seriously and will work relentlessly to obtain a conviction. Our team is ready to be your champion, tirelessly seeking the best possible result on your behalf.

Expungements

Having an arrest or conviction on your criminal record can make it challenging to live the life you want. Career, educational, and other prospects can be severely hampered because of your criminal history. An expungement can seal the information from public access, allowing opportunities to open that had once been closed to you. Speak with our Minneapolis lawyers to learn more about pursuing this type of relief.

Federal Crimes

From mail and wire fraud to tax evasion and from identity theft to drug trafficking, various types of unlawful conduct fall under federal jurisdiction. If you have been accused of a federal offense, reach out to our team to learn about how we can defend you.

Felonies

Felonies are the most serious offenses. A range of violations is charged at this level, including murder, drug crimes, criminal sexual conduct, and robbery. At Brockton D. Hunter P.A., our Minneapolis attorneys understand the complexities of these cases and build sound defenses to challenge accusations.

Homicide

An act resulting in another’s death can result in homicide charges. In MN, several different crimes are considered homicide, including murder, manslaughter, and vehicular homicide. These are serious matters requiring serious defense, and our team is ready to provide the legal representation you need.

White Collar Crimes

Typically, white collar crimes take place in business and government settings. Although they do not usually result in physical harm to another, they are still serious offenses that state and federal governments aggressively pursue. If you are facing charges, turn to Brockton D. Hunter P.A. for defense.

NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED VETERAN'S DEFENSE

We defend those who served our country and who, as they grapple with physiological and psychological wounds, find themselves entangled in the criminal justice system. Attorneys Brock Hunter and Ryan Else are military veterans themselves, and they literally wrote the book on veteran’s criminal defense in Minnesota. Brock also drafted the Veterans Sentencing Mitigation law for Minnesota, making it only the second state to recommend treatment over incarceration for veterans whose criminal offense involved service-related psychological injury.
We are dedicated to defending our nation’s heroes.
