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.

The weather is warming up and outdoor-in person appointments are now available. The updated CDC guidelines indicate that masks are not needed for vaccinated people outside if not in close quarters; although as a precaution we will continue to practice social distancing. If you have not had your vaccination, masks will continue to be a requirement.

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

Please see our blog for more info on pandemic response.

Get Experienced Defense Against Serious Drug Charges

Minnesota takes drug crimes seriously — and you should too. If you’ve been charged with possessing, selling or trafficking any controlled substance (including many prescription drugs), you may be facing significant jail time, fines and other long-lasting consequences.

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to face these charges on your own. At Ed Shaw Law, our criminal defense attorneys represent individuals from all walks of life who are charged with drug crimes, from possession of a small amount of marijuana to distribution of methamphetamine. We’ll work hard to protect your rights and your future, and we will look for options for reduced sentences and treatment wherever possible.

Is Drug Court An Option?

Drug courts are working well in Brainerd and across Minnesota, reducing the recidivism rate and providing people the treatment they need to get back on track. The state’s drug court programs have grown over the past two decades and proven to be an effective alternative to incarceration. As part of our strategy, we will evaluate your eligibility for drug court as well as other ways to reduce jail time and ensure you receive any treatment you need.
