Criminal Defense

Law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and even probation officers are not on your side. You need someone who is. You need Heuer Fischer.

At Heuer Fisher, we have won not-guilty verdicts in assault, theft, DWI, felony drug possession and attempted murder cases. We have earned pretrial dismissals in several other types of cases, including drug possession, robbery, and weapons cases. Whether you are facing a serious felony charge, or you are a professional or student worried about the effect of a criminal charge on your career, our Minnesota criminal lawyers provide intelligent and proactive advocacy.

Choosing Your Criminal Defense Attorney

When the handcuffs click behind you in Minneapolis, your life could change in an instant. Whether a felony or misdemeanor, a criminal charge can have a serious impact on your career, family, finances, and future. You could be facing a total loss of liberty if you are sent to jail or prison. You could face crippling fines. You could even have a criminal record that haunts you for the rest of your life, keeping you from getting the job of your dreams.

With such severe consequences, it is critical that you exercise your right to an attorney. It is essential that you have a skilled, aggressive advocate challenging the prosecution’s evidence, who will work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf and who will seek the best results for you.

Invaluable Experience

"Throughout my four-decade career involving criminal defense work, I have learned that good people can sometimes make bad mistakes and that individuals are often falsely accused of wrongdoing. These errors do not mean, however, that a person should spend the rest of their life paying for them."
