Are You Looking For An Experienced MN Criminal Defense Firm To Handle Your Case?

Work with a Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer who will Guide you through Every Court Appearance


Hire One Of The Best Criminal Defense Lawyers In Minneapolis, Minnesota

Are you facing criminal charges? If so, you need to hire a MN criminal defense firm that will be with through every court appearance – attorneys who will guide you through the entire legal process.

The number of times you and your Minnesota criminal defense lawyer are required to appear in court will depend upon the type of charges you face. With a petty misdemeanor, only two appearances may be required - the arraignment and the actual court trial (if needed). With misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors and felonies, on the other hand, numerous court appearances may be required.

When you meet with your Minnesota criminal defense lawyer, it is important to discuss your possible court appearances. By doing so, you will know what to expect when you appear in court.

  • Arraignment
    At the arraignment, conditions of release are reviewed and you are sworn under oath to give your address and name. The arraignment is usually the first court appearance and, in the case of a misdemeanor charge, your Minnesota criminal defense attorney may be able to get this appearance waived.
  • Pretrial
  • Trial
    A petty misdemeanor involves a trial to a judge only. For other criminal charges, you may choose to have your case heard before a judge or before a jury. With a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor, the jury will consist of six people. Felony cases involve twelve jurors.

If you are ready to put one of the best MN criminal defense firms to work on your case, contact Halberg Criminal Defense at (952) 224-4848, 612-DEFENSE (333-3673) or via email at info@halbergdefense.com.
