Rochester MN Alternative Dispute Resolution & Criminal Defense Lawyers
Dealing with legal challenges is always a trying matter. When those challenges have an immediate impact on your personal life and the lives of your family members, a trying matter can become almost unbearable. If you are involved in such a scenario, or fear that you may be soon, we can help you build solutions to your legal issues in an efficient and effective manner.
Attorney Terri Wintering‘s three decades of experience focus on using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques such as mediation to help people reach family law resolutions with less stress and less expense. We know how to use the power of ADR to help our clients create solutions that function today and that will be well suited to meeting your needs and the needs of your family for years to come.

This will help you make informed decisions that will lay the foundation for a better future.
ADR Can Help Solve Even the Most Difficult Situations
ADR offers a number of advantages over traditional civil litigation. During ADR, a neutral third party will provide a space where each party can be heard. The neutral third party will work to help the parties see beyond their differences and find common ground. Having this sort of help can make it easier for both parties to see what they have to gain from cooperating and reaching a mutually acceptable resolution.
Attorney Michael Walters takes swift action on behalf of our criminal defense clients, protecting their rights through arrest, trial and beyond.
Defending the Rights of the Accused
Being arrested and charged with a crime is an overwhelming and stressful situation. Enlisting a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can help you understand your rights and ensure that your best interests are served. Whether you are facing accusations of DUI (drunk driving), a drug crime, an Internet crime, fraud, assault or other criminal charges, we can aggressively work to see that the charges are dismissed, a plea bargain is made or that your side of the matter is forcefully argued in court.
Protecting Your Privacy
In some criminal cases, police obtain evidence by violating your right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. A good attorney fights these Fourth Amendment violations by arguing to suppress the evidence.
Fighting Collateral Consequences
If you have a driver’s license it could be impacted by traffic violations. Criminal charges could jeopardize a nursing or other professional license. A good attorney knows how to work with the licensing boards to put you in the best position possible.
The most important ‘collateral’ consequence is the impact on your reputation. You have a right to fight for your good name.
