Congdon Law. PLLC.

St. Paul Violent Crime Defense Lawyer


Violent crimes can range from simple assault to murder. While the penalties for different offenses can vary significantly, the damage that a conviction can do to your future is the same for all of them. A single conviction for any type of violent offense will solidify your reputation as a violent person with prospective employers, landlords and others who have reason to view your criminal history.

If you are facing charges for a violent offense, be sure that you have a skilled Minnesota criminal defense lawyer representing you from the outset. At Congdon Law, PLLC, I represent clients whose futures are in jeopardy because of a violent crime charge. I have successfully defended numerous clients in these matters, and I utilize effective strategies in my efforts to protect your rights.

I represented a 21-year-old Dakota County man who was charged with violating an order for protection. I successfully challenged probable cause for the arrest. The prosecutor was unable to prove the alleged conduct took place in Dakota County, resulting in all charges being dismissed.

Effective Defense From A Respected St. Paul Attorney

In every case, I work tirelessly to present a compelling defense that avoids a conviction on your record. Absence of intent to commit a crime, self-defense and other considerations can all contribute to an effective defense strategy. I will conduct a complete review of your case and develop the most effective defense available for your case.

I provide aggressive defense against all types of violent crimes, including:

  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Aiding suicide and aiding attempted suicide
