The Shek Approach
Affordable Criminal Defense with Real Results
Looking for a lawyer who will fight for you?
I often see clients of high-cost attorneys accepting plea deals they could have gotten walking into court alone. Many of those same attorneys boast their experience as prosecutors, but that’s the last mindset I would want to have when facing criminal charges. The only time you should take a prosecutor’s mindset is when you’re looking for a quick deal.
There’s no quick deal with me. I’m after the best results, and that means a fight. No matter how much time or effort is needed for your case, it will not cause me to advise you to plea. Prosecutors in the counties I work in know I’m not here to make their lives easier, and that helps me achieve a better outcome for you. I will fight for you, keep you involved in your case, and get you the best results.
I regularly monitor the filings of other attorneys. Too often, I see firms recycling strikingly similar filings. For simple issues, this can be adequate. However, you need an attorney who diligently evaluates up-to-date law when problems become complex. Every case has a unique set of facts, and if you try to handle every situation in general terms, you will miss out on various authorities. Whether the implication is minor or significant, I ensure my clients do not miss any potential leverage that will impact a case’s resolution.
Many defendants don’t have huge savings to spend on attorney fees. I cut costs on my end by doing the work myself so that I can pass those saving on to you. Cutting costs allows me to represent you at one of the most competitive rates on the market.
This isn’t a flashy, downtown glamour firm. I’m about results. I deliberately avoid a high client volume so I can spend countless hours reviewing the evidence, poke holes in the prosecution’s case, and successfully outwork them at every step.
Results Don’t Lie
I frequently review the results achieved by other premier DWI and criminal defense firms in the Minneapolis, St. Paul area. Under the same fact patterns, I strive to always do better, and I do. When my clients tell me, “I feel like I’m not paying you enough,” or “This was the best decision I ever made,” I know my methods are effective, and they will be for you too. If you’ve been charged with a crime in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Golden Valley, St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka or anywhere in greater Minnesota, I encourage you to call my office today. While I will fight injustice anywhere in Minnesota, I focus my practice in the following counties: Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington, Scott, Anoka, Chisago, Isanti, Wright, Dakota, Carver, and Sherburne.
