Washington County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Washington County was one of the original nine counties that were created in the state of Minnesota. Although Washington County is one of the original counties, in some ways it is very different than the other Twin Cities counties. If you have been charged with a crime in Washington County, it can be beneficial to have a Washington County criminal defense lawyer with experience in the local and state courts.

You may wonder why that would matter. It matters because it is important to have an attorney who is familiar with the county prosecutors as well as the judges. All judges are required to follow the law, but it is accepted wisdom that some judges are tougher than others. At DeVore Law Office, we have experience arguing cases in Washington County courtrooms and negotiating with Washington County prosecutors.

Attorney Kevin Devore has the knowledge and experience you may be looking for if you have been charged with a crime in Washington County.
