Minnesota Violent Crime Defense Lawyers
A conviction for assault or other violent crimes in Minnesota can result in harsh consequences. Aside from fines and possible jail time, as well as the ruined reputation in the community, and a lifetime ban on possession of a firearm. A conviction can end not only a hunting hobby but also make it very difficult to get employment in the future.
Assault is a serious criminal charge that carries life changing penalties. At the Rosengren Kohlmeyer & Hagen Law Office, we solve problems.
We have more than 25 combined years of experience as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers, which includes thousands of criminal law cases we have handled. The attorneys at Rosengren, Kohlmeyer & Hagen understand how these cases and what needs to be done immediately to get the best results possible in your assault charge defense.
Common Assault Scenarios
We have handled hundreds of Minnesota assault charge cases. Although every case is a little different, there are a few scenarios in which assault situations commonly arise:
- Alcohol-related assault: Most people are aware and self-controlled enough when sober to avoid physical confrontations. Most of us, however, become much more courageous and much less aware after consuming too much alcohol or other drugs. This is why assault charges frequently arise in bars and parties, and alcohol is involved in most assault crimes.
- College: We help students — and their parents — who have been charged with assault charges. Common scenarios for college assault crimes include fifth-degree misdemeanor assault, domestic assault, fights at house parties, sporting events, date rape and other related sexual assault charges.
- Domestic assault: Family law and criminal law converge on domestic violence charges. Husbands and wives frequently get into arguments that escalate into physical violence, especially when alcohol or drugs are involved. Minnesota handles domestic violence claims very seriously and you will absolutely want to know your rights and your options if you or a loved one are charged with domestic assault.
Regardless of the situation in which your assault charge occurred, we can help you.
Intelligent Criminal Defense
There are plenty of Minnesota criminal defense attorneys out there who talk a mean game. They play up the “tough guy” image. But the reality is that they are putting on a show for the client. They know that in Minnesota criminal defense attorneys are expected to look tough, so they try to do this. This is done more for the client’s sake than in an effort to actually get a good result. With more than 25 combined years of experience in criminal law, including thousands of criminal cases handled by prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys, we know what works is getting a plan to defend the case early on, not talking tough. We are intelligent at trial planning and strategy, savvy negotiators and skillful advocates in the courtroom and if you are charged with a crime we will work tirelessly to defend you.
We can be extremely aggressive if we have to, and we have taken that route enough times, but our number one objective is solving problems for our clients.

I contacted Tom Hagen for a DWI charge, I was extremely impressed with Mr. Hagen, he knows his stuff, he's patient and made sure that I understood what was going on. He set me up with an amazing plea agreement and helped me out more than I was expecting. If you are looking for a good lawyer, I would highly recommend looking into this office.Alexis U, Client
This law office was very helpful and informative on helping me complete a settlement with my previous employer. Every time I called or emailed I was responded very promptly that same day. I also never felt pushed aside or that my case didn't matter, considering my case was small in comparison. I was highly recommended to them and will be giving the same recommendations.Jessica Sambrano, Client
