At Ascheman & Smith, our primary focus is on criminal defense. As criminal defense attorneys we assist those that are facing prosecution by the State. We defend people in counties all over Minnesota and Wisconsin facing criminal charges, from felony to gross misdemeanor and misdemeanor charges.

- Drug offenses, controlled substance offenses
- Assault and criminal sexual conduct
- Burglary, theft & stolen property
Our initial consultation is free. It's an opportunity for you to meet us, and see if we can help you. There are cases where you may not need a lawyer, if that's the case we can ensure that you know your rights and answer a few of your questions. Contacting us does not create an obligation to hire us.
The First Step:
When representing people facing criminal charges, the first thing we do is set up a meeting. To set up the initial meeting, simply call our office 612-217-0077 or send us an e-mail (Law@AschemanSmith.com).
At the first meeting we listen carefully to your side of the story, understanding your circumstances and needs. From there we review the charges made against you and the claims made by the State. The more information you have available at our first meeting, the better we can assist you in defending yourself against these criminal charges.
At our first meeting, we also take the time to explain the basics of the legal system. It's vital that you have an understanding of the legal system to understand what you're facing, and how we can help you.
At the free consultation we will explain the cost for our services based upon the details of your case. The vast majority of our criminal cases are done by flat fee basis. Each case is different, so after reviewing your case and developing a good legal strategy, we will tell you up front what it will cost.
