Criminal Defense Practice Areas:
Penalties for a DWI/DUI in Minnesota can be severe. Possibility of jail, revocation of your driver’s license, criminal probation, and fines and fees, just a few. If you’ve been arrested for DWI/DUI, you should know that there is hope. Several legal defenses are recognized in Minnesota criminal courts to fight your DWI charge. If the police violated your Constitution rights in any way, you may be able to get your DWI charges dismissed entirely or significantly reduced.
⇒ Domestic Assault
In Minnesota, there is very little tolerance for domestic violence. If you’re charged with domestic assault, you are facing severe penalties and could even be excluded from living in your own home while the case is pending! While it’s an important goal to end real domestic violence in society, sadly, far too often, many people are wrongly or falsely accused. If you’ve been accused of or are facing domestic assault charges, it is vitally important that you retain a criminal defense attorney experienced in defending domestic assault charges.
⇒ Controlled Substance Crimes
The balance of police enforcing criminal drug laws while also respecting individual rights and liberties is up for considerable debate. Many drug charges rise and fall on constitutional issues, specifically, the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits the police from making unreasonable searches and seizures. Police officers routinely patrol highways and as a result traffic stop issues are often the most common legal challenges raised in court. The police are not allowed to search you, your car, or your home based on a hunch or a suspicion alone.
Having a criminal conviction on your record could have a lasting impact on your life. You may be denied housing or employment due to your criminal conviction that may be 2, 5 or 20 years old! There is hope! Minnesota statutes and courts provide procedures for people to get criminal convictions expunged from public records.

I spoke with 5 different criminal defense attorneys before deciding to hire Luke. I am so glad I went with Luke as he fought for me the entire process. I felt like I had someone in my corner.
Luke represented me on a gross misdemeanor DWI and hiring him was the right decision. Luke filed motions on my behalf and ultimately convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the DWI charge and let me plead to a lesser charge of making an improper lane change. He also helped me keep my license valid throughout the case. Great lawyer!
I was facing serious drug charges after my house was searched and Luke negotiated a resolution to keep a conviction off my record. He worked very hard for me and I would recommend Luke to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney. Plus, his rates were very reasonable, much lower than other attorneys I spoke to.
My daughter had a serious drug addiction and as you can imagine, she soon faced serious drug charges. My daughter was looking at prison, but Luke was able to get her into inpatient treatment, where she got the help she so badly needed. As for the charges against my daughter – Luke was able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss! Thank you Luke for all your hard work!
I was charged with malicious punishment of my child and Luke fought so hard on my behalf. At my jury trial, Luke argued I was using reasonable force to discipline my child and after less than an hour of deliberation, the jury found me NOT GUILTY! It was such a relief to clear my name and prove I was innocent. Thank you Luke!
Luke was very respectful and responsive. He always answered my call and kept me completely informed throughout my case. He knew how to explain the process in terms that were easy to understand. Do yourself a favor and hire Luke as your attorney.
Luke has represented me on my DWI charges. He got me a great deal. I’ve recommended Luke to three other people and all three were extremely happy with Luke’s representation.
Luke is the best! I had two DWI charges and he got both dismissed without any DWI on my permanent driving record. He was very responsive and answered all my questions along the way. He took the stress out of a very stressful situations.
Luke is a fantastic attorney, he got criminal charges dismissed and reduced to non-criminal citation with very low fine.
