State v. Confidential

September, 2019
Charges: Felony Second Degree Assault, Threats of Violence

This client, a veteran and incredibly valued member of the North Star family now, was facing the loss of a high-six figure annual income, his home, a relationship with his kids that he could control... his life was in essentially a tailspin when Dan and James interceded and substituted for another attorney, and began working on positive outcomes. After more than a year of aggressive motion practice, of careful negotiations, and of cautious optimism on the part of this fragile client, Dan secured a gross misdemeanor outcome over rabid state's opposition. This means the case was ALWAYS a misdemeanor, never a felony; the client can negotiate his future with confidence and joy, as opposed to fear and loathing... The entire office simply exists to seek and achieve results like this. Please carefully consider your choice in lawyers: it is one of the most important and consequential decisions you can ever make, and we are deeply desirous of getting you the best conceivable results.

State v. Confidential

July, 2019
Charges: Second Degree Assault and Threats of Violence - Felonies

COMPLETE VINDICATION! Client facing his first felony, in midlife, with a career and encroaching retirement utterly threatened, just received notice that the entire matter is dismissed due to the aggressive and thoughtful advocacy Mr. Adkins provided. The County Attorney knew the right decision was to dismiss the case. The client is overjoyed with the counsel and fight he received from Mr. Adkins and for this new lease on life.

State v. M.M.

April, 2017
Charges: Threats of Violence, Felony (and Second Degree Assault pending charge, if a trial demanded)

Case out of Washington County was dismissed on day of trial. Intense investigation led to a rapid dissolution of the State's case, preserving a perfect lawful record of a talented professional man. A voluntary confession wasn't the massive hurdle it generally would be, after North Star's efforts came to bear on the case; however, this matter and so many others do point up how absolutely vital, how critical it is to get strong legal representation at the outset of your case, before you even know you are a target. Always, ALWAYS demand to be represented by counsel when questioned by police or prosecutors, simply always. The lawyers at North Star are available 24/7/52 to assist you, at your beck and call. Do not act alone, or you may find yourself sitting alone, making hard choices the wrong way. This was the third of three perfect results, same morning.

State v. (Confidential)

April, 2017
Charges: Threats of Violence, Felony

Charges out of Dakota County. Counts were reduced to Misdemeanor Assault with no jail time and only community service. All felony counts were dismissed. This result is better than it appears; it permits an active duty soldier with an impeccable record to continue his service to our country, uninterrupted. A man with five overseas tours got tied up in a road-rage incident, and made a momentary poor choice--which would almost certainly result in a felony in any other circumstances, and possible jail time, loss of firearm rights, and a host of collateral negative impact for the man. Careful negotiations and a perfect score card for commitment to therapies and thoughtful self-analysis resulted in a last-minute, career-saving result. We rarely get this much pride from our work, or this much tangible benefit to a remarkable life. Yet another case where an ill-timed decision on the client's part, to tell the truth to officers investigating a complaint, almost cost more than can be quantified. Never, never ever speak to police or prosecutors without your team, North Star Criminal Defense.

State v. A.S.

February, 2017
Charges: Threats of Violence - Felony

Dismissed. This matter concerned a felony count of Threats of Violence, and allegations of gunpoint menacing during a road rage incident (which could have led to an amended complaint including a Second Degree Assault count, with potential prison implications). Mr. Adkins got the case dismissed on the morning trial was set to begin, after extensive wrangling and legal arguments/motions. The client, whose record contains a number of previously felony convictions, saw his position get markedly improved when the North Star Criminal Defense motion practice placed the admissibility of those convictions into the atmosphere. Needless to say, the client is extremely pleased.
