Standing Up For The Accused

At Kennedy & Kennedy Law Office, we respect our clients. We trust that they will make the best decisions when they understand the law, understand the evidence (or lack of evidence) against them, and understand their options.

That is why defense attorney Chris Kennedy gives his clients a straightforward opinion based on more than 10 years of experience defending people in the criminal courts of Minnesota.

We defend adult and juvenile clients charged with any criminal offense, including:

  • Drug offenses: Drug possession, sale and distribution of drugs
  • Traffic violations: Speeding, reckless driving, moving violations, school zone violations, failure to stop for a police officer
  • Drunk driving (DWI/DUI): Underage drinking, driving on a suspended license, driving on a revoked license
  • Obstruction of justice and resisting arrest (a catch-all offense the police charge you with if you don’t immediately comply)
  • Sex crimes: Sexual assault, prostitution, solicitation, child pornography
  • Theft crimes: Shoplifting, burglary, larceny
  • Violent crimes: Domestic abuse, assault charges, terroristic threats, vehicular homicide, manslaughter, murder
  • White collar crimes: Embezzlement, forgery, fraud, identity theft
