Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Representing You In And Out Of Court

If you’ve been charged with or are being investigated for a crime in the Brainerd, Grand Rapids or St. Cloud Area, the criminal defense attorneys at Ed Shaw Law should be the first call you make.

When you hire us, you hire a criminal defense team with over 40 years of combined experience in criminal law.

We represent people charged with all types of crimes in Minnesota, including:

  • Drunk driving (DWI or DUI): A drunk driving charge can permanently impact your life and jeopardize your driving privileges. We work to keep you out of jail and on the road.
  • Theft, burglary, tourist crimes and other property crimes: One or more property crimes on your record can lead to severe consequences, so we fight for the lightest outcome available.
  • College crimes: We believe that a young person’s future should not be over because of one mistake, so we strive to give you a second chance.
  • Drug possession, sales or trafficking: Minnesota takes drug crime incredibly seriously. We work to reduce the consequences and get you treatment if needed.
  • Assault, domestic violence and violent crimes: You could face probation, prison time and reduced custody of your children if convicted of a violent crime, so we fight these charges tenaciously.
  • Fraud and other white collar crimes: Do not underestimate the severity of a white collar crime. With federal minimum sentences of years, our lawyers try to get charges reduced and sentences lessened.
