Comprehensive Representation in Related Matters

Criminal cases can have many facets. Oftentimes, criminal charges are the beginning of a lengthy interaction with the legal system. James Blumberg can help his clients from the moment they are arrested and charged with an offense.

Some criminal accusations, such as those related to domestic violence, can involve several other related legal matters. For instance, if a person is accused of domestic assault by strangulation, the victim in the alleged offense can file a petition for a protective order against the accused. This petition would limit the contact between the victim and the person accused of the offense.

While the accused may not be represented in a hearing for an ex parte order, he or she may be represented in a hearing for a permanent order. A dedicated criminal defense attorney can work with the accused on this issue, as well as his or her criminal charges. Any violation of a protective order also is a criminal offense for which James Blumberg can provide legal counsel.

Drug charges often involve search and seizure issues. James Blumberg can examine every aspect of your case to determine if the searching of your property was done so illegally. If your attorney can prove law enforcement violated the law with an improper search, any drugs used as evidence could be thrown out.

James L. Blumberg

Skilled Legal Counsel in Minnesota DWI Cases

Minnesota has some of the strictest and most complex laws in the nation regarding drunk driving. People often think there is no way to challenge the crime, especially if they have consented to a chemical test and produced a blood alcohol concentration greater than the legal limit. Failing a DWI test, however, does not have to mean a conviction.

As a criminal offense, charges for a DWI in Minnesota must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Prosecutors and law enforcement must present sufficient admissible evidence to meet a high burden of proof. For instance, there must be reasonable suspicion for a police officer to stop a vehicle in most circumstances. If that does not exist, the entire stop — and any evidence found during the stop — could be considered invalid.

DWI attorney James Blumberg has experience in examining the validity of evidence, such as the results of chemical tests, used in these complicated cases. If evidence of impairment was obtained illegally, it could be thrown out.  This could mean having the charges reduced or dropped. Additionally, DWI charges can involve license revocation hearings, vehicle forfeiture and plate impoundment. All of these issues can accompany drunk or drugged driving charges. An experienced attorney can help you protect your license and property.
