  • We’ve spent years handling criminal cases – we’ve seen it all and defended people charged with every crime possible. Cases just like yours.
  • That experience has given us a lot of insight and perspective on our clients. We know  your mind is not focused enough right now to come up with the answers you need. It’s impossible to think clearly when so much is at stake. You cannot, and should not, go it alone.
  • It’s tempting to do nothing, in the hopes that it all will go away. It is not uncommon for individuals in this situation to become paralyzed and seemingly to take action for themselves. So, they procrastinate.  After all, it’s an awful situation. Nobody ever dreams it will happen to them or someone they know.  On top of the stress, grief, and disbelief, finding a lawyer – the right lawyer – seems like a daunting task.
  • The good news? Our minds are very clear.  We know precisely what you need to do. We can think for you, and guide you. Our team will help make the process easier, and much less stressful for you and your family. We’ll give you honest, clear direction – and we will fight for you until the end.
  • Hire a criminal defense lawyer now to protect your rights and your freedom.
  • If you have been charged with a crime the state only has one goal in mind: To prosecute, convict, and punish you. To make an example of you. In other words, it is you against the government. Despite what prosecutors or the police tell you –  they are not your friend. They don’t want to help you.  They are the enemy.
  • And you need a lawyer who will be your advocate inside and outside the courtroom. An attorney who will fight to make sure your constitutional rights are protected every step of the way.
  • The Minnesota defense firm of Gerald Miller PA is here to help.  If you have been falsely accused, we want to exonerate you, whether that means you are found not guilty or your case to be dismissed. Even if you made a mistake and you did commit the crime – we don’t judge.  We still want you to be found not guilty or for your case dismissed, or to accomplish some other excellent resolution to your case.
  • The legal world is complex. There are many laws, technicalities, and procedures that can favorably or adversely affect the outcome to your case.  Something as simple as not filing for a specific hearing within the legal time period allowed, or the obtaining of evidence before it disappears could mean the difference between you being found not guilty or guilty.  Many filings have very short deadlines within which to act. If you don’t hire an attorney soon, he will have fewer opportunities to act promptly and secure you more leverage in your defense.
  • If you have been accused or arrested, but not yet charged –   the same applies.  The big difference, however, is that we can be proactive if you contact us before you are formally charged.
  • Consider this: By giving us the chance to act quickly, clients who have listened to our advice were never charged with the crime they were arrested for.
  • One of the most important factors involved is our ability to control what you say and don’t say to the authorities.  In some cases we speak to the authorities, not you, and thereby weaken their case against you.  There are numerous strategies that can work to your favor and that’s why it is important for you to contact a criminal defense lawyer now.
  • Bottom line? You simply cannot give the state a favorable advantage if you want a chance at freedom. If you wait, they will have time to build a strong case against you. Call us immediately after your arrest if possible, or as soon as you are released. 
  • Call the Minneapolis defense team at Gerald Miller Law Firm PA at 612-440-3212 so that we can determine your best defense strategy and begin building your defense.

Does the attorney practice ONLY criminal defense?

A general practice lawyer does not have the experience and expertise you need to overcome this.
The more narrow the focus of the attorney, the more capable the attorney will be in handling your case.

”The only source of knowledge is experience,”  – Albert Einstein


With decades of courtroom experience comes an in-depth knowledge of the legal system and Minnesota criminal law statutes. It also creates sophisticated, highly-skilled courtroom tactics, as well as trial and negotiating skills. The lawyer’s experience will directly benefit you.

“Talent is never enough. With few exceptions, the best players are the hardest workers.”

Magic Johnson

Work Ethic and Passion for What We Do

Hard work is a must. Criminal law is a very challenging area of the legal system. It is not enough in most cases for a lawyer to simply go through the motions. Your lawyer needs to make you comfortable that they want to do a great job. They must feel passionate about the law and for standing up for their clients. 

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”

Ferdinand Foch

Does Your Attorney Care About You and Your Case?

  • All practicing lawyers care about their clients to some degree.  If they don’t – they have no business practicing law. There are, however, different degrees of compassion. Every case is crucial and life-altering to the client it’s affecting.  And a lawyer should match that level of seriousness during the representation. 
  • We know you are ashamed. You might feel like a criminal, or a screw up. You are a person who made a mistake, or you were falsely accused. Everyone goes through hard times. Our team understands that. 

“Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.”

Theodore Roosevelt.
