About Catherine Turner

Catherine, a Certified Criminal Law Specialist accredited by the Minnesota Bar Association, has dedicated her legal career solely to criminal defense since 2005. Throughout her extensive tenure, she has actively participated in over 50 trials and presided over numerous evidentiary, motions, and suppression hearings in both state and federal courts. Her background as a former public defender and a seasoned federal practitioner has granted her substantial courtroom experience, engaging in rigorous legal battles with prosecutors, skillfully cross-examining witnesses, persuading judges, and establishing connections with jurors. Additionally, Catherine has authored extensive legal documents, including numerous briefs and sentencing memoranda. Her track record speaks volumes—she comprehensively comprehends the intricacies of litigating a case, achieving success in trial outcomes, obtaining pre-trial charge dismissals, and effectively persuading judges to reduce or mitigate sentences for the benefit of her clients, even in cases resulting in conviction.

Catherine’s approach to her clients is founded on principles of honesty and direct communication. She excels in elucidating complex legal concepts, exploring available options, and engaging in discussions regarding her clients' perspectives on the events in question. Her dedication lies in guiding her clients through the legal process, elucidating their rights, setting expectations, understanding their priorities, and realistically outlining the possibilities for their case. She acknowledges that every situation is unique, recognizing the far-reaching consequences of criminal convictions that extend beyond the confines of a courtroom. Her objective is to assist in maintaining a clean record for her clients.
