Experienced And Zealous Criminal Defense Attorneys

Since 1962, the attorneys at Perry & Perry PLLP have been defending the rights of Minnesotans in criminal and civil court. If you’ve been charged with a crime, you can entrust your rights and your freedom to a firm with a track record of client advocacy and success in the courtroom.

Defending Clients Against A Wide Variety Of Charges

We can defend you against a variety of charges and infractions, including those related to:

  • Traffic tickets and driving offenses
  • Impaired Or drunk driving (DWI)
  • Drug crimes (possession, manufacturing, trafficking, etc.)
  • White collar crimes (embezzlement, fraud, identity theft, etc.)
  • Theft and property crimes
  • Weapons offenses
  • Sex crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Assault
  • Murder/homicide

Whether you have been charged at the state or federal level, we are ready to represent you. We waste no time in conducting our own investigation and analysis of the evidence against you and constructing the strongest possible defense strategy. We prepare your case for trial and will not recommend a plea deal unless we believe it is in your best interests (after a thorough and careful review of the facts).

Appeals, Post-Conviction Relief And Expungement

If you were wrongfully convicted or were the victim of an unfair legal process, the attorneys at Perry & Perry PLLP, are ready to help you appeal the verdict. We will investigate whether misconduct, inadequate representation or other factors played a role in your conviction and seek appropriate remedies accordingly.

Sometimes, a conviction itself cannot be challenged but the sentence received is inappropriate or unduly harsh. We will help you petition the court for post-conviction relief. This may include a shorter or commuted sentence, reduced fines, probation instead of incarceration, or similar measures.

Even after your sentence has been served, a criminal record can make it hard to find a job, good housing or other necessities. Thankfully, certain crimes can be expunged (removed) from your public record, and we can help you through the sometimes-complicated petition process.

Helping You Keep Your Property

If you are convicted of a crime in Minnesota, the government can sue you in civil court to seize any of your personal property that can be tied to the alleged crime. While this practice is highly controversial, it continues because there are perverse incentives for it. In most cases, law enforcement agencies are allowed to keep 90 percent of the value of the assets seized.

Our firm will fight to help you hold onto your property, including property which may be jointly owned by a spouse or family member (such as a car). We will not let the government exert flimsy justifications for why it deserves to take what is rightfully yours.
