Criminal Defense

Helping Defend Against State And Federal Charges In Minnesota​

Whether you are a first-time offender or have been through the system before, being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience. You feel like you are being put in a no-win position: You want to answer questions to clear your name, but you know that anything you say can be used against you to support a conviction. You need to be sure that you are doing everything you can to fight back.

At Macaulay Law Offices, in St. Paul, we work with individuals in the seven-county metro area who have been charged with state or federal crimes. We understand how the process works and will be by your side from the beginning to the end. We explain everything that is happening, and involve you in the decision-making process so you can make the choices that are best for you.

Nothing Short Of Your Future Is At Stake

From the moment you are arrested, police are gathering evidence that the prosecution will need to support the charges against you. That means that every moment you wait to hire an attorney, you are behind. Law enforcement hopes that you will cooperate and make their lives easier. You have rights, but it is up to you to take advantage of them. We can help you prepare a sound defense against a range of state and federal charges in Minnesota including:

  • DWI and other alcohol-related driving offenses
  • Drug crimes, including trafficking and distribution
  • Assault and other crimes of violence
  • Fraud and related white collar crimes
  • Appeals of criminal convictions

You may think that there is nothing you can do in your situation but plead guilty. Know that this is not the case. We can perform a thorough review of the facts and evidence, and make sure that police and prosecutors respect your rights during the process. Jennifer Macaulay is an experienced trial lawyer, and she will present an aggressive defense on your behalf at all times. She will not back down when prosecutors try to make your life more difficult.
