I am a respected Woodbury Violent Crimes Lawyer  who gets results for clients charged with the most serious crimes, including:

Defending You at Trial

When you are facing serious charges, you need skilled legal representation. I am an experienced lawyer with a record of success defending clients charged with violent crimes throughout Minnesota. In 2014, I was recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in Minnesota by being named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers list.

If the government wants to take away your freedom, they must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. I have a successful record of persuading juries throughout Minnesota that prosecutors have not met that standard.


I will study the police reports and the evidence against you, looking for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. Holes may become apparent by asking questions such as:

  • Did the arresting officer(s) follow proper procedure?
  • Was there an illegal search and seizure of evidence?
  • Are the prosecution’s witnesses reliable? Are they motivated by self-interest?
  • Is forensic evidence trustworthy?
  • Have the police ignored facts that would exonerate you?
Partnering With You

I consider my clients’ partners in the resolution of their cases. I will listen to you, answer your questions and keep you informed throughout the life of the case.

Never underestimate the difference a skilled Woodbury Violent Crimes Lawyer can make. To discuss your case, please call 651-504-256.

    5 star service. Hands down the most professional, sincere, caring, and personally involved lawyer I have had on behalf of my life. I have had Justin represent me over the past few years covering things from traffic violations to a felony and have been pleased with the result every time. Not only that, I have recommended him to friends and family and they have nothing but nice things to say as well.”

    Justin made a huge impact on my life, and gave me the second chance I needed to be successful in staying sober and living a "normal" life. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is facing criminal charges, because he's not just in it for the money. He truly wants to make a difference in people's lives.”

    All I can say is that Justin Schiks saved me from what was a train wreck waiting to happen. I had a different criminal attorney that gave me very bad legal advice and did a plea that I never should have done. I thought my fate was sealed, but Justin said nothing is ever in set stone. He was able to get my plea reduced; resulting in dramatically reduced my sentence.”
