There Is No Case Too Complex

What Our Criminal Defense Lawyers Could Do for You

Every criminal defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty through either a guilty plea or verdict. To obtain a conviction during a trial, the prosecution must present evidence demonstrating guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. We utilize a wide array of strategies to cast doubt on the prosecution’s evidence against you.

After carefully reviewing evidence in your case, we can help make an informed decision about how to proceed. Sometimes the road leads to negotiations for a fair plea bargain. Sometimes we attack the constitutionality of a search (suppression). Sometimes the best path is to attack the prosecution’s case in the courtroom to defend your innocence.

Branstad & Olson recognizes there are a number of considerations far before trial or plea negotiation. We can also assist in requesting release from custody and bond reductions as you await trial.

We Take Your Situation Seriously

If you have been charged with a crime, you may face a range of serious consequences, including: probation, driver’s license suspension, hefty fines, and even long-term imprisonment. We understand that your future is important. Our defense team is dedicated to exploring every option.

    SIX STARS****

    I was in pursuit of legal advice and services and had NO knowledge of where to start. Just like another reviewer mentioned, Christine Branstad was my saving grace. She went above and beyond her expertise and used human compassion to help and guide me along the way. She is an excellent professional and I highly recommend not only her services, but her characteristics of how she handled the situation.
