Experienced representation in juvenile criminal defense matters.
Stillwater Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Clients Throughout The Twin Cities Metro
Individuals facing criminal charges have a lot at stake. The only way to be sure that your best interests are fully protected is if you work with an experienced lawyer. Choosing the right attorney to handle your case is an important decision, and one that should be made after careful consideration.
I am attorney Pat Zenner of Zenner Law Office, and I offer my clients experience, commitment and straightforward legal advice. I understand the concerns that my clients have and make it a priority to take a team-oriented approach to resolving their particular case.
From my offices in Stillwater, Minnesota, I advise and represent clients throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul metropolitan area.
Juvenile Defense And Criminal Defense Services From Zenner Law Office
My practice is focused on criminal and juvenile defense cases. Some of the most common cases I handle include assaults, theft crimes, sex crimes, cases involving damage to property and felony offenses.
As a Stillwater criminal and juvenile defense lawyer, I also handle juvenile cases involving:
- Juvenile delinquency
- Certifications to adult court
- Extended jurisdiction
- Child in need of protection or services (CHIPS)
- Termination of parental rights
- Grandparents’ custody and visitation rights
Rights For Grandparents
The Minnesota Supreme Court recently expanded the legal avenue* to allow grandparents an opportunity to seek custody and visitation rights. If your adult child is in the process of divorce or your unmarried adult child files for recognition of parentage (ROP), grandparents may petition the court for custody and visitation rights. I will explain the law and how I can help you remain an important part of your grandchild’s life.
While I focus primarily on juvenile defense, I also have extensive experience in handling adult criminal cases. I handle criminal cases for adults involving DUI, burglary, criminal sexual conduct, theft, assault charges and more.
In addition to criminal cases, I frequently handle custody and parenting time cases. I have significant experience working with clients in creating effective custody agreements, handling disputes and modifications.
Putting Experience On Your Side
I started out as a juvenile public defender and throughout my career have always focused on juvenile and adult criminal cases. Over the past 20 years I have received most clients through referrals and word of mouth, and continue to build my practice through my reputation. I participate in many training seminars involving juvenile and criminal defense, including training for lawyers, judges, probation officers and social workers.
