Past public and private criminal defense work means the clients quoted here enjoy a better life today. Even though the Karlsson Law Office no longer takes criminal cases, it is important to remember those cases.
“Well, you will still have me around.”
- A 17-year old client talks to his 12-year old sister on the phone from the courthouse after a jury trial in adult court and acquittal of 6 felony assault charges.
“You saved my son’s life.”
- A father expresses thanks after judges in Minnesota and North Dakota made courageous decisions to decline prosecutors’ demands for adult court jurisdiction of armed robbery charges.
- One judge later remarked the case will make the courts look either “very wise or very dumb.”
- The young man successfully completed juvenile probation and began a post-secondary education.
These are a couple of the results that continue to reward and motivate Karlsson’s practice of law.
