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.

Local Solutions
For Local Problems

Strong Defense For Violent Crime Charges

When you are at risk for violent crime charges, you need an attorney who knows the best way to avoid a conviction or jail time.

You want to work with an attorney with a proven record. The best criminal defense attorneys also understand the local court system, judges and prosecutors.

Experienced In Brainerd And St. Cloud Criminal Courts

At Ed Shaw Law, we know what tactics local law enforcement uses to get convictions. We also know that criminal prosecutors will go hard after you to prove the charges against you. From the very start, you have things stacked against you: The other side assumes you are guilty and looks for evidence to prove it. You might also have a harder time because you’ve been profiled due to your race, culture, economic status or education. We know how to work through these obstacles.

We Are Skilled At Criminal Defense For Many Types Of Cases

A violent crime charge means that law enforcement believes there were threats or force used. If you are facing violent criminal charges, this can mean felony charges. Felony charges can mean large fines, jail time and a permanent record as a felon. This can interfere with your ability to get a job, get housing, see your kids, own a gun and travel.

We have experience with many types of cases, including:

  • Domestic violence
  • Assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Battery
  • Weapons crimes
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking
  • Sexual assault
