Coronavirus Impact and Assurance: Yes! We are still open for business!

For the last year, thanks to the hard work of all of our staff, and you, our clients, no one who works at this office has gotten Covid while working here, and we have not spread a single case to any of our clients, while getting all of our client's legal needs taken care of. With the spread of vaccination the end is in sight, normal times where we can meet our clients in person in the office are just around the corner.

During the transition we will be having some in person, in office appointments for clients who have already been vaccinated, and for whom the CDC recommended period of time has passed since their last shot. Of course, for anyone who would prefer a phone or video appointment for safety, convenience, or any other reason those types of appointments are always available.

For our clients who have not yet completed the vaccination cycle phone and video appointments are of course available, and, with the return of warm weather we will again be offering outside appointments under the tent right outside our front door. For all appointments, masks will continue to be required.

Through the transition safety of all staff and clients will continue to be our top priority, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Sudden resignation of Crosby Policy Lieutenant in charge of investigation against Jim Hunter provokes further questions

| Jul 1, 2019 | Uncategorized

I was surprised to see that after three separate juries acquittedJames Hunter. The Crosby Police Lieutenant, who, was in charge of the investigation against Jim Hunter, suddenly resigned recently. His resignation is just one more occurrence which, in combination to everything else that has occurred in this case, demonstrates that the accusations against Mr. Hunter were based on politics and not facts. 

The Crow Wing County Attorney refuses to admit any mistakes. After a two year plus investigation and prosecution that cost the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars in staff time and other costs, cost Mr. Hunter his reputation, and untold costs in lost business, the only regret of the County Attorney is that they lost three trials and Mr. Hunter was not convicted. Prosecution is not a game where the only win is a conviction. A win should be seeing justice done, whether that is convicting a guilty person, dismissing charges against an innocent person, or, simply not filing charges when no crime has been committed. Everyone makes mistakes, there is nothing wrong with filing charges, and then dismissing them when it becomes clear that a crime was not committed. The inability of our County Attorney to admit any mistake is troubling. Until we have anhonest accounting of what went wrong in the County Attorney’s Office, what happened to Mr. Hunter could happen to any of us.
