Minneapolis Juvenile Criminal Defense Lawyer
Does he or she really need a criminal defense lawyer? The answer is yes. Just as in adult cases, it is important that juveniles have an experienced criminal law attorney to protect their rights.

If your worried about criminal charges facing your child, we can help. Here at The Law Office of John J. Leunig, our criminal defense lawyers have successfully handled hundreds of juvenile cases during our careers in matters involving everything from DUI and drunk driving, drug charges, attempted murder, and sexual assault.

Leunig today to talk with a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience defending juvenile cases in the Minneapolis area. We will ensure that your child’s rights are protected throughout the process and that everything is done to obtain the best result possible.
Get Protection From A Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney
Juveniles can be charged with any crime, but some of the most common include:
- Underage drunk driving
- Minor in possession
- Drug possession
- Speeding and other traffic violations
- Sex crimes
We have an incredible amount of experience in all of these areas and can handle any crime your child is facing. Our criminal defense attorney will fight to keep the case in the juvenile justice system where the focus is primarily on rehabilitation, not just punishment.
In serious cases, the prosecutor may try to get the case moved to adult court. You do not want your child tried in the adult criminal justice system, which is much more punitive and where prison is an option. Our criminal defense laywers have extensive trial experience in this unique area and will fight hard to obtain the best result possible so the consequences to your child are alleviated or minimized.
Our goal is to protect your child and defend there freedom and rights. We will strive to keep your child out of detention; probation or home arrest is a better option. When possible, however, we will strive to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
If there are underlying issues such as substance abuse, we will assist your family in getting your child the professional help he or she needs.

I just wanted to write to put an end to our story and to thank you for being our guardians! Really—- we honestly would not have survived without you!!!! Your compassion, knowledge and providing us round the clock access cannot be measured in a simple Thank You. We are grateful beyond words. You saved my son’s life. How do you completely thank someone for that??? Our gratitude is immeasurable. From our hearts — Thank you.
This letter is to thank you for representation that was above and beyond what we expected to receive. You are a clever, extremely professional, comforting individual and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that you care about the outcome as much as we did. Your style of representation was impeccable, classy, and cleverly executed throughout every facet of the case. We were proud to have you as our lawyer. We felt comforted by your portrayal of experience and knowledge. You were protective, well-prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see the others had respect for you and what you had to say. John did everything he promised and more. He comforted us when we were worried, and fought hard for us. He was our friend. I would recommend anyone to John. John is truly a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation. Sincerely yours.
….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
Just a note to thank you for the wonderful representation provided to my son. I have worked in the Justice System for 30 years and have had the opportunity to watch many well-known defense attorneys in action. None of them compare with the knowledge, grace and dignity that you provided to my son which ultimately has given him a second chance at life. You are truly the Best of the Best!! Thank you never seems enough, but thank you!
There are really no words to express our gratitude and thanks. You have done your job well and are to be commended for your efforts. You have treated us with dignity and respect – precious commodities that are close to the soul. You treated us as more than like a client – you treated us as a friend. Thanks for caring and your support. You’re one in a million!
I just wanted to communicate my thanks for the professional legal representation provided by you and your firm… Please know that I really appreciate the way you guided me through the somewhat foreign processes of our justice system. John, you really are an excellent attorney. You gave me confidence with a dose of reality all at the same time. Your experience, pragmatism, and charisma really made me feel good to have your representation.
I don’t know how to go about thanking you for helping me through the toughest time of my life. I never thought someone like me would have to face allegations like these. This was terrible. Me and my daughter would love for you to know how much we appreciate all that you do. I wish there were more people like you. Thank you and your staff for all you have done to help (I will never forget this). You’ve won our hearts.
We give thanks to God for having placed such a great person in our path. Thank you for offering us your support up until the last moment. God Bless you now and always John J. Leunig
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude again for your outstanding efforts to obtain the exceptional outcome on my case. I have known you for years, from my previous career in the legal field. Even though I had not worked for you directly, I was impressed and aware of your talent as an attorney. I have much admiration for your ability and command of the law, the respect you have from other attorneys and prosecutors, and how you reverentially treat and defend your clients with conviction and vigor! I truly appreciate your way of putting my mind at ease and approach of communicating the steps of action, keeping me informed in the process. Your efforts and excellent outcome on my case only confirm what I already knew, that I made the right choice in you for my attorney! I will gladly, and without hesitation, refer anyone who needs legal representation to your services! Thank you again, John.
I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your support and friendship through one of the toughest ordeals in my life. There is not a moment that goes by in the last week that I don’t think about how great you did at the jury trial… I will recommend your great service to everyone I come in contact with that may need you! My kids thank you too.
